Sponsored Sailors Travel to Miami OCR

West Coast Sailing Team Member Hanne Weaver recently traveled to Miami, FL for the Miami OCR Regatta. Here is a quick regatta report : "Here in Miami, Florida, I have been practicing with Claire Dennis and Paige Railey. This was very exciting! I was honored by the fact that I was invited to sail. The wind was very steady, around the range of 8 to 18 knots through out the regatta. It was my first OCR and I was here just to learn. And that is what I did. I placed 49th out of 65 boats. But for my first regatta, I thought I did okay. I gained experience sailing against professional sailors and learning their techniques. I can't wait until next year when I hope to do better." Another one of our sponsored sailors, Isabella Bertold, also competed at Miami OCR. Isabella placed 23rd. Great job, girls!
