The decorated competitive sailor and Fort Lauderdale, Florida native is taking part in the event in Miami, Florida

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Feb. 20, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ZEFIRO METHANE CORP. (the “Company”, “Zefiro”, or “ZEFI”), which works to reduce methane emissions by plugging orphaned oil and gas wells across the country, sponsored athlete Erika Reineke is taking part in a qualifying competition against a collection of the country’s best sailors in Miami, Florida. Success in the event would secure Reineke’s spot in the world’s preeminent athletic competition taking place in France this summer.

Reineke is a former US Rolex Yachtswoman of the Year (2017), four-time Collegiate Singlehanded National Champion (2013-2016), and four-time NCAA All-American (2013-2015, 2017. Reineke is also a current member of the US SailGP team and the America’s Cup (AC) Women’s team.

While Reineke balances the various commitments needed to excel in each of these intensive endeavors, the Fort Lauderdale, Florida native still finds time to help the next crop of athletes both in and out of competition through various her youth coaching and mentorship roles. Having received a degree in Environmental Science from Boston College, which earned her a spot on the Atlantic Coast Conference’s 2017 Academic Honor Roll, Reineke also plans to earn her Masters of Business Administration after this competitive racing cycle in hopes of one day working to help support environmental conservation.
