Having wrapped 2 months of training in California, I went back to Rhode Island, where I competed in the J-70 Bacardi Regatta, which was all very new to me.

The final day of racing saw conditions similar to the 3rd day of the regatta. The marine layer wasn’t burning off quickly making it hard for the breeze to fill in. The points were all very tight and it was going to be a close battle.  (more…)

Shifty conditions made it difficult to match race my competitor while still having a good race. He got the better of me!! Have a Silver Medal locked up for the 2014 CAC Games. Not excited with the outcome, but I sailed well nonetheless.
Very Happy I was able to bring home a Medal for the Virgin Islands.

Here in Veracruz, Mexico for the Caribbean and Central American Games (CAC). Scored a 5,2 in the opening light wind day followed by a 1,2,1 in day 2, where the winds topped off at 30 in the last race. Day 3 racing cancelled because of excessive winds. Gonna head out with the team and possibly watch some other sports compete.
