Advice for girls interested in racing

Published on June 22nd, 2017

Erika Reineke, a 23-year-old graduate of Boston College, was awarded the Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association Quantum Women’s Sailor of the Year Award. When asked what advice she would have for young girls who are interesting in competitive sailing, Erika offered:

“First, be someone you want others to look up to, no matter what success or adversity comes your way. If you live by that on and off the water, you’ll have success in anything you do. The next thing I would say is, remember to smile. Doing what you love is supposed to be fun, so please never lose sight of that.”
