Two-time men’s 470 Olympian Stuart McNay (Providence, R.I.) enjoyed a strong first full year with David Hughes (Miami, Fla.) to kick off their 2016 campaign. A 6th place finish at the tough 470 Class World Championships in La Rochelle, France, set the tone for this new but experienced team, and they have their sights set higher for 2014. McNay and Hughes have continued to look fast, winning bronze at the 2014 ISAF Sailing World Cup Miami. Returning to join them on the team are college sailing standouts Jordan Factor (Burlington, Vt.) and Matthew Wefer (Glen Head, N.Y.).
Laser Radial athlete and ISAF Rolex World Sailor and Rolex Yachtswoman of the Year (’06) Paige Railey (Clearwater, Fla.) won bronze at the 2013 Worlds in Rizhao, China, and achieved the impressive feat of medaling at each of her events during the past year. Railey also started out 2014 strong by winning ISAF Sailing World Cup Miami for the second year running. Laser Radial Youth World Champion Erika Reineke is back on the team, after winning yet another ICSA (Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association) Singlehanded national championship as a sophomore for Boston College.
2012 Olympian Farrah Hall (Annapolis, Md.) enjoyed a career-best season of international results in 2013 and returns to the team in the RS:X, bringing years of high-level experience to the table. Marion Lepert (Belmont, Calif.) finished an impressive 4th at the ISAF Youth Worlds in 2013, and looks to continue her rapid ascent to the highest levels of windsurfing. On the men’s side, Carson Crain (Houston, Texas) is back for a second year, after graduating from the US Sailing Development Team (USSDT) in 2013. He’s joined by newcomer Jonathan Rudich (Clearwater, Fla.).
