So if you followed my results during worlds you will have seen that I had a pretty terrible regatta, really off target from where I expected to finish. I thought I had prepared really well: I was feeling really fast in the training days leading up to racing, I was feeling strong and had been hitting PRs in the gym a few weeks before leaving, […]
We finally have internet in our bungalow here in Medemblik, so I can do a blog update! Racing starts tomorrow (Monday August 21st) and goes for six days, with two races scheduled each day. You can look up results (and possibly live tracking and/or video) at the event site (click on results). We have been in the Netherlands for a week now, training and getting […]

We got right down to the boat park to unload and set up my laser. We spent that afternoon getting everything race ready: polishing the hull and foils, replacing some line, taping the spars, and checking out new […]
The article below was written for the Royal Victoria Yacht Club mainsheet.

I was invited to join the team of four young BC sailors representing Canada this year. The International Women’s Keelboating Championship provides women keelboat and offshore sailors with high quality racing and […]
