USMMA Farr 40 Sailor Profile- Kitty Segert

Name: Kitty Segert
AKA: Mom
Year: Senior
Homeport: Merritt Island, FL
Position: Trimmer
Started Sailing: May 2004
Favorite Race: Intercollegiate Offshore Regatta. It is a great weekend to race against other college sailors, the boat donors are enthusiastic and if it wasn’t for them and their support, we wouldn’t be there.
Favorite Boat to Sail: Farr 40
Best Day Sailing: Probably the first time I went sailing four years ago. It was back home on the Indian River doing a buoy race on a Hunter 27.5. I was the youngest on the boat by about 20 years and the least experienced. Being on the boat learning how to sail and compete was the best feeling and I fell in love with the sport.
Career Plans: Ship out as a 3rd Mate
