Gearing Up

Over the last week I have been practicing almost every day in the Viper refining small details in techniques, calling tactical moves in the changing breeze, and gaining more experience by simply being out on the water. Today we had three F16s and two F18s out during our Sunday practice, the average fleet size during weekday training. The majority of the sailors are training for various events: three teams for the Tradewinds Regatta and one, myself and Sam Armington, for the ISAF Youth Worlds Qualifier. Both regattas are next weekend and all of the traveling teams are excited to race and represent Sarasota Youth Sailing in nationally competitive events!
