In a year where social distancing has become the norm and the population has been advised to reduce contact with others as much as possible, the newest prospective Olympic class – Mixed Doublehanded Offshore – has hit the water with perfect timing. US Sailing Team athletes traveled to Annapolis Yacht Club the weekend of October 3-4 to witness Doublehanded Distance Racing firsthand in the club’s second annual event.
It was a skiff family reunion down in Miami, Florida last weekend at the Skiff Generation Grand Prix, a brand new training platform for U.S. high-performance sailing development featuring three skiff classes in one regatta: the 49er, 49er FX, and the 29er. Seven US Sailing Team athletes hit the water on Biscayne Bay for eight races over two days and swept the podium as they started their first real racing in months.
Pedro Pascual is ready to roll in Vilamoura, Portugal for the upcoming RS:X European Championships set to take place November 22-28. Like many sailors these days, it's been a while since Pedro raced in a formal regatta, so he's looking forward to putting his last few months of training to work and gauging how the fleet has evolved after months of derailed plans from the pandemic.
