2022 is around the corner and we have a lot planned!
January - Miami OCR
February - Florida training
March/April - Princess Sofia Trophy regatta in Palma, Spain
May - Training block in Nova Scotia
June - Kiel Week in Germany
July - 49erFX Junior Worlds in Italy
August - 49erFX Worlds in St. Margaret’s Bay, Nova Scotia
Our goals are big and so are our needs!
For 2022, we ordered a new hull to go with our existing rig except the class association has designed a new mast and sails so we need a new rig too! The technological improvements made to the new equipment will make skiff sailing faster and the new design is stronger, therefore everything should last longer—so some savings in the long run.
The European regattas we need to attend necessitate multiple charters (expensive) or purchasing a second boat to keep in Europe (also expensive). Having a boat on both sides of the Atlantic will allow us to maximize training and minimize expenses (eventually) but we have a lot of upfront costs this year!
Also to maximize our training we will be in Europe where we need your help!
- Used boat for Europe and/or charter fees: $24,000 - 30,000
- New mast: $8,000
- New set of sails: $13,500
Any amount you can donate to our campaign really helps a new team like us as we start our Olympic journey.
Thank you so much,
Tate and Adri
