Mark Clarke is a multi-generational black sailor who represented Bermuda internationally in the sport. Much of his lifelong sailing career was spent alongside his father, who was also an accomplished sailor.
Four sailing clubs were established during a racially-segregated Bermuda. Bermuda is no longer segregated, and sailing now has a rich history of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Mark and his family’s sailing accomplishments continue to benefit all in Bermuda and provide inspiration for the sailing world.
Mark is also currently the deputy chair of the SailGP Bermuda Grand Prix Steering Committee. He has returned to the sailing community after retirement and participates on race committees and is working to organize and grow sailing awareness in a diverse and inclusive environment.
