49er

Nevin Snow

Nevin Snow first started sailing in San Diego, California at age eight. Initially, he was nervous sailing solo, but with patient coaches, he learned to love it. Nevin took every chance he had to travel and compete around California as he progressed in the Naples Sabots, Lasers, and CFJ fleets. He was introduced to match racing and started competing at the high school level, quickly improving as a sailor. Over time, he honed his skills and medaled at the Laser Radial U18 Worlds, Youth Match Race Worlds, and World University Games. In the fall of 2013, Nevin attended Georgetown University. College sailing really fueled Nevin’s passion for training and perfecting the details. After eight seasons of hard work, he graduated as a four-time All-American, two-time College Sailor of the Year, two-time Match Race National Champion, and a Fleet Race National Champion.

After graduation, Nevin started sailing the 49er as a skipper in spring 2017. He instantly enjoyed the challenge of sailing the boat and the simplicity of its design. Since teaming up with his current crew, Dane Wilson, in April 2019, they have blown their personal bests out of the water by finishing 13th at their first World Championship together.

Q&A’s

When did you start sailing? When I was 8.
Who introduced you to the sport of sailing? My parents, my Dad worked at North Sails at the time, my Mom was an All-American at Navy. Nearly all of the opportunities I have been afforded in sailing have been due to them. They are both sailors, themselves, and are extremely supportive of my brother and me.  Thanks Mom and Dad!
When you’re not sailing, what do you do? Surfing, basketball, biking, and general tinkering in the garage.
What accomplishments are you most proud of? Piecing this past year together with Dane. We had just met in April 2019 and worked so hard to mesh and race hard. To win the Olympic Trials was extremely validating for us as a team.
