Training Camp

Following the Orange Bowl regatta, a 5-day training camp was held at the US Sailing Center in Miami. Report from the training camp and Orange Bowl here. I am home now to finish up my first semester, but I'll be back in Miami at the end of January for the Miami OCR.

Orange Bowl International Youth Regatta and Training Camp

The Orange Bowl regatta was held in Miami, Florida December 27 - 30. In the laser fleet there were 40 boats. The event was primarily a training event for me. It allowed me to identify what I need to work on in the upcoming camp, which starts on the 1st of January. I finished 7th overall. Results here. Report to come.
