CHRIS POOLE

Chris Poole, from Westport, CT started sailing at the age of ten years old in an Optimist out of Portland Yacht Club in Falmouth, Maine. Today, he ranks at the top of the match racing leader board.

Having grown up on small boats along the coast of Maine, Chris diversified his skills at Maine Maritime Academy where he started honing his match racing skills. In the summer of 2011, he interned at the Chicago Match Race Center and finished 2nd in his first ever match race. Chris accelerated his climb to the top of the international match race rankings over the past years, training in Oyster Bay, NY and traveling the world, competing against the best in the sport.

In 2022, Chris won the Thompson Cup and Chicago Grand Slam. Finished 2nd at the World Match Racing Championship and US Sailing Match Racing Championship. And finished 3rd at the Congressional Cup and Oakcliff International.

In 2023, Chris and the Riptide Team won the 57th Congressional Cup undefeated with a total 24 race wins. The team went on to finish second at the GKSS Match Cup Sweden in Marstrand.
