How would you describe your coaching style?

I like to create drills where sailors work on their skills, and I like to give very specific feedback on little things that make a huge difference.

Do you have any advice for the sailors attending the U.S. Youth Match Racing Championship?

Sailors should be excited to be at an event with other highly skilled and competitive sailors, and plan to leave better than when you arrived, regardless of where you finish.

What is a fun fact that most people don’t know about you?

I have five younger sisters, all of whom have sailed at some point
