C420 Midwinters

Dear Newport Harbor Sailing Foundation,

Thank you so much for the funding given so that I could travel across the nation to Jensen Beach, Florida. This fantastic trip wouldn't have been possible without your support and help. While I was there, I learned so much about fleet management and adapting to new areas. I will forever remember these lessons and will be sure to use them in my next regatta. Once again thank you so much for the funding this incredible trip that couldn't have been possible without you! Below is a short debrief of the event.

C420 Midwinters was even more of an amazing experience than last year. I had two great coaches, Amanda Callahan and Augie Dale, which were able to provide so much insight on tactical and fleet management decisions. Overall the regatta went well, and we ended up in gold fleet in 31st out of 108 competitors. We improved dramatically since last year and can't wait to continue to race the c420 locally and nationally.
