Meet Scarlett Zerbe – sailor of “DASH” from Sandringham Yacht Club, Victoria.
Scarlett Zerbe and her family are a delight to have around the boat park. After completing Tackers at Sandringham Yacht Club they joined the Opti fleet and haven't looked back. Scarlett is currently in Year 6 at Sandringham Primary School and became the proud new owner of Dash only 18 months ago. Since then she has tried to make the most of all the opportunities that open up once you join the Victorian fleet.
Her favourite part of sailing is being involved in regattas and spending time with the friends she has made. These regattas near and far – take her and her family on fun sailing getaways. The biggest highlight so far was traveling to China with the VIODA team for the 2016 Qingdao Regatta – home of the Sailing 2008 Olympics.
She’s also very proud to be sailing in the same boat as Jack Graves when he won the Nationals in 2012.
In addition to sailing she enjoys taekwondo, netball, soccer, biking, snow skiing and Girl Guides.
