March Update

March Update

Hello! Sorry for my hiatus here, March was a super busy month and I just never managed to put aside the time for a blog update. So here is a catch-all March training update (in April….oops)! March was mainly a training block for me. The first week and a bit I spent at home, and then it was off to Mexico for a training camp […]

Frozen Asse*s and Winter Training

Frozen Asse*s and Winter Training

Last weekend we had our little local winter regatta, Frozen Assets. It certainly lived up to its name this year! It’s a small event, usually just our local fleet and maybe some from Vancouver, but pretty fun and a good opportunity to get some start-line work in. This year they decided to race the laser standards and radials together, which was a interesting decision. On […]

Miami Recap

Miami Recap

I’ve been home now for a few days, and its time to do a review of the Miami World Cup! It was overall a great regatta, even though I finished 10 places lower overall than last year (50th). We had pretty interesting and non-typical Miami conditions for quite a few days as well, which was cool. They had a new racing schedule for us, alternating […]

Miami Training

I am still sort of on-track for weekly posts, yay! Today is my day off training before the World Cup starts here in Miami, so I’ll give you a little update on what I have been working on. We drove down here last Tuesday with all the boats, and then unloaded everything again! That was a full day of organizing and unpacking lasers (we are […]

Lauderdale OCR

Lauderdale OCR

Here is my Lauderdale OCR recap, more or less on my schedule of one blog post a week (racing ended Monday). It was a great start to the 2018 racing season, and was overall a super fun event! We arrive in Florida just over a week ago (the evening of January 9th) so we had three days of training before racing started. Fort Lauderdale is […]

New Year, new blog!

New Year, new blog!

Hi Everyone! I’m sorry I totally failed at posting on this during the fall. It just wasn’t a top priority and with such a busy training and work schedule if I don’t specifically make time for something, it doesn’t get done. In the fashion of New Years resolutions I am going to try to commit to writing a new post every week! I will be […]

Now I’m in Barcelona!

Now I’m in Barcelona!

I’m writing this quick update from Barcelona, where I am getting ready for the last big regatta this season, the 2017 Laser European Championship. I arrived Saturday morning (the 30th) and got out on the water for a training session right away. It was great conditions (starting around 12 knots, dying throughout the day) with big chop and waves, which I haven’t sailed in for […]

Learning Lessons the Hard Way

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, […]

This past year I have made some really big strides in my sailing and have had much better competition results to show for it, […]
