Sailing World

Nate Parsons

Hailing from the heartland, Abby grew up sailing everything from Beneteau cruisers to JY15s out of Vermilion, Ohio. Claiming the Thistle class as her own, she also races J/24s, Melges 24s and Lightnings-- you'll be hard-pressed to find a boat she won't race and love. Back at Ohio University, Abby studies journalism and economics; she is just getting her feet wet with the variety of campus newspapers. She's also the current team captain of their sailing team.
