Meet our Captains and Crew
Laura Webster - Mate on Columbia
Laura Webster is an Ocean State girl! Laura grew up in Bristol, a Rhode Island town not far from Newport that is home to the Herreshoff America's Cup Musuem. Although she has always sailed with her father on the family boat, she had never raced until joining the Columbia team. Now she is hooked and loves the thrill of competition aboard our America's Cup racers!
When she is not sailing you might find Laura studying accounting or working at one of Newport's marine shops selling sailing gear. She also loves to swim, walk, bike and travel. In the winter, like many of our team members, she enjoys hitting the slopes, snowboarding in New Hampshire.
Columbia and 12 Meter Charters are thrilled to have Laura as a member of our crew! Laura's love of the ocean, sailing, and Rhode Island, combined with her warm and friendly personality, helps make our guests' experience aboard Columbia unforgettable. Laura and the team of 12 Meter Charters invite you to set sail aboard our 12 Meter yachts. We are looking forward to a spectacular sailing season in 2010!
