Former Hobart Sailor Looks to Rio

While a Hobart student, Trevor Moore earned accolades for sailing each of his four years, including an ICSA College Sailor of the Year nod as well as the Most Valuable Sailor Award two consecutive years.  

Due to his dedication to the sport, Moore was the co-recipient of the Francis C. “Babe” Kraus Memorial Award, which is presented annually to the Hobart senior whose sportsmanship, leadership, and scholarship during his career warrants the title “Athlete of the Year.” Today, Moore is looking for an even larger accolade, a gold medal at the 2012 Olympic Games.

Getting his start in his hometown of Scituate, Mass., Moore grew up sailing in tech dinghies with his father John and brother Dana. During his early years, Moore sailed in the European Championships, finishing 20th and 3rd; and three World Championships, finishing 22nd, 46th, and 28th.

At HWS, Moore was a three-time All-American skipper and part of the winning team at both the 2005 Team Racing and the 2006 Singlehanded National Championship. After leaving Hobart, Moore set his sights on qualifying for the 2012 Olympic Games. In preparation, he has a busy training and competition schedule which includes races in Europe and the Bahamas.
