The America’s Cup has always been about pushing yacht design to the limit and embracing changes to keep the sport relevant for future sailors. But over the past 153 years, the teams have been predominantly filled with male crews with opportunities few and far between for female sailors to compete. In a move to change that, the organizers of the 37th America’s Cup have opened the door to the world’s best female sailors with the inaugural Puig Woman’s America’s Cup, a regatta to be sailed in the run up to New Zealand’s defense later on this fall in Barcelona. Late last year, our guest Sara Stone, was announced as a member of the first NYYC American Magic Woman’s team but there has been little time to celebrate because Sara has been keeping busy as a new member the US SailGP team and crewing with the Quantum Racing Team in the highly competitive TP52 Series. We catch up with Sara to talk about her sailing career, what it means to sail into the history books and what’s next.
