Sports Illustrated placed him on the list of Georgetown’s Top-10 all-time athletes.
Campbell’s career in professional sailing has seen him compete across multiple international classes and events including as tactician with ORACLE TEAM USA in the 2017 America’s Cup and as flight controller for American Magic challenging for the 2021 America’s Cup.
An active Moth sailor, Campbell has also competed across various professional classes including the M32, Pac52, Farr 40, Melges 24, and GC32.
