2023 Team: Bridget Groble, Morgan Collins, Katherine Klempen, Samantha Foulston
Bridget Groble began match racing in 2015 out of the Chicago Match Race Center. In 2017, after learning the game through crewing, Groble began skippering some events. In 2018 Bow Down Racing was formed and Groble and team competed in their first U.S. Women’s Match Race Championship in 2019. In 2021 team Bow Down Racing made it to the petite finals of the USWMRC to place 3rd. In 2022, Bow Down Racing made it to the petits again and are looking to climb this year. Tactician Morgan Collins has also been match racing for roughly a decade as a driver herself, doing very well on the U.S. Women’s circuit. Kate is an excellent team racer and college sailor who made her match racing debut in 2021. We look forward to Samantha bringing her keelboat expertise to match racing this season.
