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.

After a month and a half of hard training on the water in Palma, Spain we have traded our water training ground for the mental and physical classrooms in our homes in Miami, FL. Over these past two weeks of quarantine we have participated in daily webinars, multiple daily team calls and daily workouts.
As a team we try to maximize our time on the water, with the quarantine we have been given the opportunity to study other aspects of our sport and become experts in the rules, starts, tactics and strategy. We can’t control the situation we are currently in but we can use it to our advantage and grow stronger as a team. 💪 🇺🇸
There are a lot of unknowns at the moment but we are adapting to the situations! We want to give a big thank you to all the people who believe in us, push us and help us determine our next steps!
