Only 6 days to go until racing!
We have been here in Aarhus for a week now training with the US Sailing Team. There are four American boats competing here in Aarhus at the Hempel Sailing World Championships, and we have been working hard together to produce a top performance when racing starts in one week.
The 2018 World Championships are a particularly special one. This event is the first country qualifier for the Olympic Games in Tokyo in 2020. The top eight countries to finish at this event will be awarded a berth to compete at the Games.
As you can imagine, this is a peak event for the top teams from every country that is here to compete. We are so pleased to be part of the US Team effort to secure a berth. Over the last week the team has settled in, put in many on the water training days focused on boatspeed and technique, and spent some time in coaches' racing with the rest of the world. We are fast, happy, and prepared for another good week of training followed by a killer week of racing!
Stay tuned for more news!
