Athletics in the Olympics offers an extraordinary level of competition. We intend to win Gold at the 2020 Summer Olympic Games in Enoshima, Japan by becoming the best Women’s 470 sailors. To meet this challenge, we bring the following to the field:
We have years of training and racing on the water from Optis, to club 420s, to international 420s and now to the 470 dingy.
While training together as Skipper and Crew, we are awaking a synergy which combines our knowledge about wind, tuning the boat, racing tactics, balance, strategy, and winning. Together, we reinforce one of our biggest assets…we never give up.
We know how to use the coaching we receive, whether from our own coach or from coaching at a clinic, to see the areas we can improve, to learn new techniques, to test new ideas.
We know how to keep our egos from becoming an obstacle to learning. We learn from other sailors, particularly the ones we race against, and we listen all the time.
We know exactly how hard this will be and are aware of the mental, physical and emotional energy we will need to draw on.
We have looked deep within ourselves and found a confidence that where we are now is precisely where we want to be.

Hello supporters, teammates, loved ones. We want to thank everyone who has donated to our Go Fund Me so far! The site will remain open up until our final Olympic Qualifier: the 2020 470 World Championship March 13-21!
We leave the states this Sunday to meet with our boat in Germany, where we will make some equipment changes and upgrades (hint, we could still use donations by clicking the photo below), before arriving in Spain for our final Worlds and regatta preparation.
Thank you for all of the love and support! -Nikki and Lara ...
The Sailing World Cup Miami is complete! We finished 11th overall, which means the USA trials are all within three points amongst 3 boats.

“Mamba mentality is a constant quest to find answers. It’s that infinite curiosity to want to be better, to figure things out. Mamba mentality is you’re going, you’re competing, you’re not worried about the end result.
You’re not worried about what people may say. You’re not worried about disappointing others. You’re not worried about any of that, you’re just focused on being in the moment. That’s what mamba mentality truly is”
