Howdy! I’m Sofiya, I started out sailing with my grandparents off Newport, which lead me to the ASU sailing team when I discovered it. It is such wonderful club to join to not only wind down from studies but also to create the most wonderful memories and relationships. My first regatta, I remember shaking from all the nerves until getting on the water and all of them instantly went away. Funnily enough, I had also ended up capsizing on the starting line! It is one of my favorite memories since it shows just how far I have come along. Besides sailing, I enjoy hiking and kayaking, vintage thrifts, as well as designing! Can’t wait to see everyone once we are able to hit the water! I can guarantee you will find some sort of enjoyment within our club whether from the great people on the team or with the act of sailing itself!
