Pre-Regatta: 2009 Rolex Osprey Cup

St Petersburg, FL: After a week off at home recharging, I met my team this morning at Tampa airport then headed to St Petersburg for the Rolex Osprey Cup, an ISAF Grade 1 women's match race event. The event started today with practice and registration; racing begins tomorrow at 11am. Racing runs through Saturday.

I am sailing with the same team from last week, Molly Vandemoer, Debbie Capozzi, and Liz Bower. This is our fourth time at this event, and we are very excited to be competing. There are 10 teams total, from six countries: USA, Canada, Italy, New Zealand, France, Sweden. We are racing in Sonars and the racing will be very close.
I will be writing nightly updates on our day, but you can also check it out on the regatta's website.

I would like to thank Carmeuse for their continued support of my campaign for the 2012 Olympics in London, England. I would also like to thank Gill for their support of our team for this event.
