Warm Winter Break

I spent this winter break in the beautiful sunshine state of Florida with my family. This was a much needed break from school and the colder weather and as my break was twice as long as the average school's I had plenty of time to catch up on sleep and sailing. This free time was spent preparing for the Tradewinds Regatta which I sailed at the end of break. Held annually in the Florida Keys, this venue is notable for its beautiful water, sandy beaches, and excellent wind. After sailing Saturday and Sunday in the F18 Sam and I packed up the boat and drove back home as I had to return to school on Monday. We took first at this event which shows how all our hard work and training is continuing to pay off. Now I am back at school and beginning my second semester classes. The workload is quickly growing, but I enjoy this challenge and am looking forward to the Spring sailing season.
