Of local note: Palo Alto sailor, Stanford rower and more


Palo Alto High senior Max Saparov and Woodside junior Tommy Ashworth placed sixth in the U.S. Junior Doublehanded Championship for the Bemis Trophy (Club 420) division of the Chubb U.S. Junior Championships, hosted by the Peninsula Youth Sailing Foundation over the weekend at Westpoint Harbor in Redwood City.

Saparov and Ashworth, representing PYSF, recorded seven finishes (in nine rounds) of seventh place or better at the event, which brings together the top junior sailors in the nation. They opened with a third-place finish.

Newport Harbor Yacht Club’s Morgan Pinckney and Natan Sih won the competition after finishing third or higher in all but one round.


Incoming Stanford freshman Lettice Cabot was part of USA’s junior women’s eight team that placed fourth in the ‘A’ final of the World Rowing Junior Championships in Tokyo on Sunday.

The Americans were timed in 6:37.930, just behind Italy (6:37.490). China won the race with a time of 6:35.340. Germany was second in 6:35.340.


Palo Alto resident and Stanford junior Eve Jobs, with her horse Venue D’Fees Des Hazalles, finished fifth overall in the Individual Jumping category at the Pan American Games in Lima, Peru, which ended Sunday.

She also helped the Americans earn a bronze medal in Team Jumping with a score of 23.09. Brazil earned gold with a 12.39, followed by Mexico with a 22.97.
