2NINER is an inclusive team of youth athletes in pursuit of excellence in the sport of sailing. Our team was established to bridge the gap between junior dinghy racing and pre-Olympic class development. We work together to build skills and prepare for competition.
The team is organized and coached by Philip Muller and hosts talented and passionate guest coaches including former Olympians and professional sailors from time to time.
Phil is a 2 x ISAF Youth Worlds Representative, former US Sailing Team Athlete, & US National Champion in RS:X class. He has been committed to junior sailing and coaching for the past decade and been both coach and program director of successful yacht club and community sailing programs during his career. Phil is committed to the sport and passionate about guiding youth sailors toward excellence. More here.

OUR GOALS ARE TO
Develop technically skilled, intelligent and athletic high-performance sailboat racers and prepare for international competition.
Introduce motivated youth sailors to skiff sailing and foster a positive environment for skill building, through clinics and “try-it-out” days.
Build interest in high-performance and skiff sailing classes throughout our region. And to lead by example encouraging the growth of the 29er class in the United States.
ARE YOU READY?
We encourage athletic and motivated sailors to “Drop In” with 2NINER during regular practice, a seasonal clinic, or “try-it-out” day.
