Our Strategy:

To Prepare for the Olympic Trials we will compete in 12 international events and log over 170 days of sailing.  In order to sail this many events, we will be spending over half the year abroad training agains the world’s best.  Our racing, training, and living among the world’s top racers is the clearest way to elevate our games and afford us the opportunity to focus solely on our objectives.  The days are simple: live to train, and train to win.  Although demanding, this all-out effort is the right approach, and we think the obvious path to victory.
