The Multihull Mama

Published on November 28th, 2023

Sarah Newberry Moore balances life on the Olympic Nacra 17 campaign trail and raising her toddler. Story by Michelle Slade for Sailing World:

Sarah Newberry Moore’s son, Iren, just turned 2. Not only is he already wreaking havoc at the New York YC—scattering Goldfish crackers across the manicured lawn at Harbour Court and spilling his grandmother’s wine in the prestigious club library—but he’s also beginning to know his way around a Nacra 17 better than most adults.

Iren was, for all intents and purposes, born into the current Olympic quad, so it’s not surprising that he is quickly learning the ins and outs of elite sailboat racing, just as his mom and her sailing partner, David Liebenberg, have had to adapt to having a baby in the campaign mix. It’s an arrangement that is working out just fine.  – Full report
