Falcon F18

These past few weeks have been quite busy with both academics and sailing. I have managed to complete my remaining college applications, begin looking for scholarships, and finish my last few school assignments before the break. I have also recently competed in the Junior Olympic Sailing Festival in Jensen Beach, FL in the Club 420 class. This was my first Club 420 regatta and with only a few days of training prior to the event my teammate and I placed 5th overall after two days of racing in light winds and shifty conditions.

In addition to competing in this regatta I have had the opportunity to sail the Falcon F18, a newly designed boat that is built on the East coast of Florida. This boat has more volume in the hulls than many other F18 designs as well as a well cut sail plan made by Glaser Sails in California. Sam and I will be able to sail the Falcon a few more times in the upcoming week and I will be uploading more photographs of our sailing action.
