Sarah and David joined forces in the Nacra 17 to campaign for the Tokyo Olympics and finished as the top American Nacra 17 team at the 2020 World Championships, ultimately placing second in the trials. Over the past three years the two have grown together as a team, learning to lean on each other and find strengths in one another that have made them stronger. The two have shown their ability to make it to the top of the fleet and are building on their solid foundation as they set their eyes towards Paris 2024 while supporting teammates GIbbs/Weis as they prepare for Tokyo 2020.
