Nacra 15 Sailing

12-01-2017

The Nacra 15 is a scaled down version of the Nacra 17, the current Olympic catamaran, which creates a pathway towards the Olympics.  A couple weekends ago, I sailed the North & South American Youth Olympic Nacra 15 qualifier event in Miami, Flordia.  It was a great regatta.  My skipper and I sailed in three different venues and were tested in various wind conditions.  This is a new boat for me, and being 5'0'' and 100lbs is a disadvantage in the heavy breeze.  However, I worked hard to get stronger for this event.  It is so empowering to see the growth and understand that my size doesn't define my ability!  I am so thankful for this opportunity to compete on an international level and push the limits.  Life is good! #strength #NBScholarship #salty
