Sydney Wewerka grew up in Colorado where she learned to love the water as a little girl, spending every possible second of summer time playing in lakes and rivers. Her earliest memory of sailing is the iconic yellow, red, and orange sail of her family’s sunfish against a bright blue sky. Sydney is an avid windsurfer and surfer, and earned a degree in Oceanography in 2020. For the past 5 years, Sydney has adventured through a variety of maritime trades including aquaculture, research & restoration, sailboat maintenance, and now as a crew member aboard the Schooner Freda B! Sydney looks forward to fulfilling her dream of putting together an all-female expedition sailboat crew with her college classmates, where they plan to showcase the power of citizen science and natural curiosity.
