Long Beach North American Champs

Long Beach North American Champs

I have just gotten home from the 2018 Laser North American champs in Long Beach, California, and they were a blast! It was also the country qualifier for next year’s Pan American Games, with 7 spots available for the standard and radial. It was especially well attended, with a total of 26 countries across 3 classes. Long Beach is one of my all time favourite […]

Melges 24 World Championship

Melges 24 World Championship

Hello! Sorry for totally abandoning this blog in the past month or so (if anyone is still reading). Things got a bit busy and I had a few frustrating sailing set-backs and I didn’t feel like blogging in the last month. But now I am back, and would like to do a re-cap of a really cool event I sailed recently: the Melges 24 World […]

Palma recap

Palma recap

This year was my first time racing in the Trofeo Princesa Sofia regatta (in Palma, Mallorca), and I absolutely loved it! It is one of the first big European events of the racing season for Olympic classes, so the turn out is large and very competitive. Almost 300 lasers raced between radials and full-rigs. It was a great opportunity to me to race in big […]

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

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 […]
