Martha Parker

Martha Parker founded Team One Newport in 1985 with a vision to start a company that focused exclusively on clothing for sailors and to find and develop clothing that fit women sailors. It was an exciting time in the industry as manufacturers were just starting to gain momentum in terms of both design and fabric development.

Martha has an extensive sailing resume including an Olympic Campaign in the Yingling, two World Titles and multiple North American Championships. She is part of an elite group of women who have helped pave the way for today’s women in sailing and has always believed that if you put your heart into it, you can accomplish your goals. Today, Martha actively races as a Category 1 sailor, which keeps her front and center in our industry. As an active participant in the racing scene, she gets to test the gear, as well as talk to sailors and receive feedback about the positive and negative attributes of the products that are on the market today.

To this day, Martha is still enthusiastic about Team One Newport and loves what she does. After being in business for more than 35 years, she is most proud of the team she has assembled and how well they work together. Martha understands the hard work that it takes to succeed and is energetic about moving forward and continuing to provide the quality, service, and expertise that her customers expect.
