Annabelle Robicheaux

Annabelle Robicheaux, a fifth grader at Horn Elementary School, is making her way in the sport of sailing. She discovered her passion for sailing in second grade after she was introduced to the sport by her father, a former sailor. Annabelle quickly took to the water and kept her eye on her goals. She progressed from the green fleet to dominating the Texas Sailing Association Regattas and has had numerous other victories. In 2023, Annabelle attended all the regattas in Texas and the Allstate Sugar Bowl Optimist Mid Championship in Louisiana, which is part of the United States Optimist of Dinghy Association. She qualified for the team trials this April in San Francisco. If Annabelle succeeds there, she will be part of Team USA, which means she would represent the US and race at international events, such as the 34th International Vila de Palamós Optimist Trophy 2024 in Spain or the 9th BPER Crotone International Carnival Race in Italy.
