The first of its kind. But not the last, where our 29er squads from across North America came together for training and racing. With the use of technology and the quality coaching we continue to push the bar higher.
Three incredible days of sailing put the athletes to the test. To be competitive, skiff sailors need to be competent and competitive in all conditions. Saturday brought breeze well into lower 20s, so we hid beneath the protected shoreline of Virginia Key. Whereas Sunday and Monday, we ventured to the open ocean for light and lumpy racing off of Miami Beach.
Here’s a link to the footage collected throughout the weekend. Watch the starts and mark roundings from Days 1 -3.
The focus of this weekend was to build and develop our athletes’ “Racing IQ.” While the racing served as the structure to learn and test skills, it was not the focus. Prizes of cheese, veggie, and pepperoni pizza were enjoyed by all athletes Sunday after racing.
