Recently I’ve been extremely busy a world away from home living in New Zealand. I’ve been here now for almost 5 months and I’ve settled into my role with the Italian Cup team very well.
New Zealand life has been great; I’ve been living in a city apartment over looking the sky tower and the city’s famous sailing waters. With the little time that I’ve had off, I’ve very much enjoyed the Kiwi way of life partaking in whatever outdoor activity seems best for the day, kite surfing and mountain biking mostly.

As always, time is flying by! The end of 2012 is coming closer and lots has happened the past couple of weeks. I have to say… My life is busier then ever!! My days are filled with lessons, practical exercises (two days ago I caused a small fire in the lab, gym sessions, and lots of fun things of course.
On November 14th I went to the METS tradeshow in Amsterdam. I was there for Sperry Topsider!! Great fun really J J Sperry had one of the best booths at METS and I had a great time being there, signing cards and taking pictures with my medal. Below I’m with Harry-Michel Peeters, the Sperry agent for Belgium and Luxemburg. Read the rest of this entry →

Things are starting to get back to normal, three weeks after winning the bronze medal at the London 2012 Olympic Games. It has been a while since I have written a report so I don’t really know where to start!
Four years ago, I did not enjoy myself at the Olympics. I was not ready, totally stressed out and sad in every possible way. Well, London 2012 was everything Beijing wasn’t. I really enjoyed myself. After months of training in Weymouth in 15 degrees and rain, we were blessed with great sailing conditions and lots of sunshine during the Olympics. Read the rest of this entry →

Hola! I’m here in Palma de Mallorca, Spain getting ready to sail the Princess Sofia Regatta. I’ve been here for about a week training and I have learned so much. I can’t even describe how happy I am with my sailing. Compared to this time last year, I have improved so much. Luther and I have done a lot of training and I am so excited to see the results. This actually brings me to now…how I’m feeling going into this event: Completely motivated, pumped, focused etc.In January I sat down with Luther, Leandro, Chris, and Kenneth and completely committed my whole being for the Olympics. We talked about what we thought it would take to achieve my goals. Since that discussion I have based my whole life around what I can do to improve my body, mind, and sailing. I dedicate every day, minute, and second to my commitment to my dream. This is a huge reason as to why I am excited for this event. I am ready to learn new things and see my progression so I know what I need to work on for the future.
Please watch the results at:
