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.

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.

Just got back from a 10 day training camp in Florianopolis, Brazil this morning. Had some time to relax and repack before taking off tomorrow morning for Vera Cruz, Mexico. The 2014 Caribbean and Central American Games (CAC Games) will be held there and I am looking forward to bringing home a medal for the Virgin Islands. Stay Tuned.

Won the 1st Redbull Land Boat sailing competition at 2nd beach in Middletown RI. Great fun and a great event put on by Redbull. I'm sure it will be huge next year, and hopefully I will be able to compete again. These crafts are so much fun. Thinking of getting one myself.
