Nabil Amra is a Palestinian American who was born, raised, worked and studied in what he would call the best place the United States has to offer, the Midwest. The Midwest, he feels, brims with a 'can do' attitude and souls rich with initiative. He also spent several of his formative boyhood years in Palestine.
It was here that he bore witness to a people that possessed enormous resilience, tenacity and the will to survive. All this while retaining their hospitality, lovability and charm. All the greater this achievement was when observing their ruthless, daily oppression in front of the worlds blind eye.
Discovering that he enjoyed sailing, he pursued the sport with fever. This passion culminate with a sloop of his own in the Caribbean which he spends every free stitch of time aboard. He is one of 30 racers entered in the 2018 Golden Globe Race Around the World. He sails for Palestine.
