Rio Test Event Day 5

It has been such a wonderful experience in Rio and to end the final series today at the first Olympic Test Event means that 2016 is closer than ever!! We spent four hours waiting on the water before the wind stabilized enough to get a race off. We were inside on the Ponte course and, wow is that a challenging one.  We had an ebb current so there was more stuff in the water than usual and unfortunately the first beat, which we were leading, we ran over a bag and it took us a while to get it off our rudder. We rounded the top mark in second to last and had to fight our way back to eighth after a couple awesome downwind runs.  We are excited to race in tomorrow’s medal race leading a three-way tie for first. Should be exiting with lots to fight for!  Start time is 2pm!

We would like to thank the sponsors and supporters of the US Sailing Team Sperry Top-Sider especially our title sponsor Sperry Top-Sider.
