The winter season is approaching fast. I am scheduling as many keelboat events as I can and then filling in the gaps with dinghy sailing. To get ready for the winter, I began working with a team who is preparing for Etchells racing in Miami. We raced a Lightning event, so we could start to build our communication. I enjoyed getting to know each other and it was great for us to start working towards our goals in Miami in December.
Also looking ahead, Dave Hughes and I are preparing for Miami OCR in the 470. We will be going back to basics to coordinate our movements in the boat. This will involve lots of handling maneuvers and sailing straight working on transitions and communication. Our first training in Miami is right after Thanksgiving.
