2019 Sapling

As a multi-sport athlete, I have had the opportunity to face a number of challenges and
find that my process for reaching success is transferable. As a sailor, I live for the moments when I am challenged, yet triumph through the application of a practiced skill set. I have sailed a multitude of dinghy boats that require a diverse set of skills, but my
desire to win and learn has consistently afforded me recognition as a top challenger. As a college sailor, I pushed my team to compete with every drill, race, and chalk talk and won my position as the A Fleet skipper. With several placements in the top 5 of fleet and team regattas, I’m looking forward to competing at the national level.
