It’s been a busy few weeks for us since becoming Olympians in Perth! We are going full-speed ahead into 2012 as we focus all our energies on brining home a medal from Weymouth. The first step is to get our equipment sorted. We are very proud to share the news of our christening USA 1273 “Wendy.”
Wendy was properly christened, with a small but enthusiastic crowd, before going sailing in Miami for the first time this week. By popping the champagne and giving her a good spray down before launching, we know she’ll treat us well. So far, so good! There are some things you can tell about a new boat, and this one has high marks. She is incredibly balanced, and we’ve been very fast in our lineups so far.
We are now in Miami with our new boat for the 2012 Rolex Miami OCR. While there are only 23 boats in our fleet, it is top-heavy. There are a number of very solid foreign teams here for us to go up against on home waters. We are thrilled to be here in Miami for our fourth consecutive RMOCR together as a team. It’s amazing how time flies! A few things have changed. We have more support, like that from Sperry Top-Sider. The new performance footwear is phenomenal.
The regatta website, here, will have results, tracking, and media throughout the week.
Thanks to everyone for their support and for following along. We would like to thank the sponsors and supporters of the US Sailing Team AlphaGraphics especially our title sponsor AlphaGraphics and Gold Partners Atlantis and Rolex.
