Mark Reynolds

When Mark Reynolds walked into the Opening Ceremonies at Sydney’s Olympic Games, he made U.S. Olympic yachting history as a four-time consecutive Olympic representative in the same event. Well-known as the “Star of the Star class," Mark has won two world championship titles ('00,'95) and three Olympic medals (1992 Gold,1988 Silver, 2000 Gold) in arguably the most competitive One Design class in the world.

Mark started sailing with his father (also a Star World Champion, sailing with Dennis Conner in 1971) when he was four. As a sophomore on the San Diego State University sailing team, he was an All American, leading the collegiate team to 2nd place finishes in 1974 and 1975 in the North American Dinghy Championships. A protégé of Dennis Conner, Mark started his first Olympic campaign in the Flying Dutchman class.

After the 1980 Olympic boycott, Mark started sailmaking at North Sails. Two years later, he left to start his own Sobstad loft, then joined Quantum Sails before the 2000 Olympics.
