SAILING TEAM CAPTAIN

I've loved sailing since my first ride on a boat as a young child, but I knew this was my favorite sport after I started racing in 2018.  The best part of racing is the team comradery, whether on individual lasers or, better still, on cruisers as a team, bringing home awards and seeing my teammates win is always a celebration.
