Ep 11 - Nick Egnot-Johnson

June 19, 2020

Nick Egnot-Johnson has been second in the world match racing rankings since October 2019, something he achieved when he was still 21. But Nick rather fell into match racing because of an unfortunate set of circumstances. He talks about his earlier days, what influence his mother Leslie Egnot had on him, his Olympic ambitions and how he got into match racing. He also delves into how he found himself racing, and often beating, some of the world’s best at the Congressional Cup when a relative unknown, the times he’s felt like a salesman trying to get into events and the amusing story behind how his team, Knots Racing, came up with their name.
