This Thanksgiving Break I stayed home to work on a school project while my parents and younger sister sailed on our family's 46 foot Outbound sailboat down to the Useppa/Cabbage Key area. While I was home I spent the time getting ahead in my schoolwork and practicing every other day on the water, in both lasers and multihulls. On Thursday I drove down to Punta Gorda in order to meet my family for a Thanksgiving brunch. I must have gained a few pounds after that meal! Saturday and Sunday were spent sailing in the Thanksgiving Regatta at Davis Island in an F18. Now it's time to get back down to business; I'm sailing at the Laser District 13 Championship back up at Davis Island next weekend and after that my next big regatta is the ISAF Youth World Qualifiers in Clearwater where I will be competing in a F16. A lot is coming up on my schedule!
