Anna Weis is trialing with the U.S. SailGP Team as an athlete following her “top 10 finish in Tokyo where she competed in the mixed gender foiling Nacra 17 class.
Anna learned to sail in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where she was born and raised. Her sailing career has included top 10 at two Radial Youth Worlds, and the 2016 Laser Radial National Champion.
