One on One with Rebecca McElvain '19
By Sam Hussey
It had everything I was looking for: a great sailing team, a great reputation, and offered new experiences away from home.
How long have you been sailing and what got you interested in sailing?
I started sailing when I was seven at San Diego Yacht Club's junior program and I loved it. My brother was the one who got me to try double handed and high school sailing.
What Sailing or Academic achievements are you particularly proud of?
1st at Baker 2012, 2013, 2014
1st at Mallory 2014
1st at Youth champs 2014
Tell us something interesting about you that might come as a surprise to your teammates.
Not sure. I have a twin but everyone knows that.
What are your future sailing and career plans?
I plan to sail for the rest of my life, not as a career. Still unsure what I want to pursue as a career.
What sports or activities did you pursue in high school, and what do you hope to continue at Dartmouth?
Outside of sailing I played soccer and loved to be outdoors.
