Hello Nantucket families, my name is James Voyages, and this is my first year as the Aquatics Director of the Nantucket Community Pool. Nantucket has been my home away from home my entire life. My parents bought property in Cisco in the early 90s and we have been coming on island my entire life. A couple years ago they moved onto the island full time, and I am excited to be able to raise my children on island.

I grew up in Fairfield County, attending the King School then went off to Virginia Tech to study engineering. After Virginia Tech, CPAC started in Stamford, Connecticut and I joined the coaching staff. Over the last decade, I have been a part of the Chelsea Piers Aquatic Club. Chelsea Piers has ranked in the top 50 swim clubs in the nation over the last 5 years, reaching gold medal status and at one point peaked at 19th. We have put out some of the top NCAA athletes in the country over the last decade including an Olympic silver medalist, Kate Douglass. In addition to working with CPAC I have run the aquatic departments of two elite country clubs in Fairfield County, Tokeneke Beach Club (Darien) and Greenwich Country Club.

I look forward to bringing an energetic and fun filled culture to the Nantucket program.
