Meet Elizabeth Kratzig

Elizabeth is the founder and owner of Zig Travel. She has over 12 years of experience working in the travel industry.

Her passion for travel started while training on the Olympic Sailing circuit, where she was an 8 time member of the U.S. Sailing team. She explored Europe, Australia, and Asia, racing boats and learning about local cultures. Her European adventures continued when she lived in Lisbon, Portugal for three years working as a strategy consultant for Arthur D. Little.

Conservation and sustainability are deeply important to Elizabeth. She co-chaired the Green Team for the 2018 Youth Sailing World Championships, which won the World Sailing 11th Hour Racing Sustainability Award. In spring 2019, Elizabeth was honored to be named an ambassador for 11th Hour Racing, an organization that focuses on ocean conservation and stewardship. Elizabeth also won US Sailing’s President Award in 2019 for her contributions at the Youth Sailing World Championships.

A native of Corpus Christi, TX, and an alum of Yale University, Elizabeth currently lives in Miami Beach. When not planning travel, she enjoys traveling, sharing her knowledge with the next generation of elite American sailors, and spending time with her family. She is currently the US Sailing representative to the Youth Events Sub-Committee of World Sailing.

Elizabeth has two Boykin Spaniels, Pearl and Mac. Mac once made friends with Jimmy Buffet’s Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Grace.
