New Executive Director

Sail Beyond Cancer Vermont

The Board of Directors at Sail Beyond Cancer Vermont is proud to announce the appointment of Jas Darland of Charlotte, Vermont to be the organization’s second Executive Director. Sail Beyond Cancer VT was fortunate to receive a bounty of applications for the position. 


Jas (pronounced Jazz) captured the search committee’s attention with her life experiences, her passion for Sail Beyond Cancer VT’s mission, as well as the kind, intelligent and articulate presence she brought to every interaction, and that she will surely bring to the organization moving forward. 

Jas began her career as a civilian with the Coast Guard where she fell in love with the water and those who appreciate its beauty and the restorative powers it provides. At the Coast Guard, Jas learned lessons in teamwork, accountability, organization, and responsibility. She carried this knowledge with her as she was drawn to leadership in service of non-profit and community-based educational organizations. Jas brings a wealth of experience in working with a broad range of constituents. She has shown a gift in organizing and guiding grass-roots non-profits and helping them to provide the greatest possible impact on behalf of the communities they serve. 


In response to accepting her charge, Jas stated to the board,“I am energized and ready to set sail and be a part of this incredible organization that is dedicated to providing such transformative experiences to members of our community.”

Jas will begin as Executive Director on March 18. 


Suzanne Snyder (Johnson), the former Executive Director and founder of Sail Beyond Cancer VT,  is now transitioning to direct Sail Beyond Cancer USA. Suzanne will help bring Jas up to speed so that she will be ready for the 2024 Sailing Season which will kick-off on Saturday, May 18, at our Commission the Mission event at ECHO, Leahy Center for Lake Champlain in downtown Burlington.


We hope that you will join us in welcoming Jas to our community as we begin our fifth sailing season of harnessing the healing powers of wind, water and sail on Lake Champlain.
