Since the trials we have all taken some time off. Elizabeth spent some time in Miami and is now coaching in Newport for some of the summer. Sally has been spending her time foiling around Pine Lake in Moths. And I have been spending my time stand up paddle boarding, at home in Charleston.
We did sail in the Chicago Match Race Eurex Grade 2 at the beginning of June. For the event, Sally and I were joined by Jen Wilson on main, Jacob Karlin trimming, and Benny Allen on the bow. We had a good first day finishing 5-3. Day two we went undefeated, 11-0. And then on the final day we lost our semi final series against Jordan Reece, but we won the petit finals against Brad Funk to get 3rd. Read the rest of this entry →

Last week we competed in the second part of the US trials. This was a winner take all event, and unfortunately we got second. The event consisted of two series. In the first series we were matched up against Genny Tulloch and team. We won the series 6-4 to advance to the finals. In the finals we sailed Anna Tunnicliffe and team, and they were able to win the series 6-3. For a more detailed regatta report, check out our website, www.team7sailing.com. We are disappointed with how the event turned out, but want to say congrats and good luck to Anna, Molly, and Debbie for winning the event.
While we are still disappointed with how this event finished up, we are not finished. We will be competing at the Women’s Match Race World’s in late June in Sweden. Read the rest of this entry →
