Young sailor Olivia Langdon has already garnered multiple US Sailing Rolex Yachtswoman of the Year awards, solidifying her status as an exceptional sailor. Additionally, she set a record as being the youngest recipient ever (at just 15) when she burst onto kite foiling scene last year.

Ravi Parent, an Olympic bronze medalist from Sarasota, Florida and Daniela Moroz, an UHM freshman sailor were honored as 2022 Rolex Yachtsmen and Yachtswomen of the Year respectively at a ceremony hosted at St Francis Yacht Club and attended by friends, family, former award recipients as well as sailing journalists.

Personal Life

This weekend she will compete for Team USA at the Sail Grand Prix finale near her hometown – even though sailing wasn’t always her passion and almost caused her to give up!

“She attributes her success in competition to the support she received from both of her parents. While they encouraged her passion, they did not put too much pressure on her. Additionally, they helped her balance competing with school life and home life — such as finishing homework during plane rides or using event postponements as opportunities to do more studying.”
