Happy Holidays from Team PHAT!

December 21st, 2019

We just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Holidays and a fantastic New Year! As this year comes to a close, we like to share some amazing accomplishments we have made as a team.

In 2019 we:

  • sailed in 9 competitive regattas together adding up to about 40 days of racing hard!
  • traveled to 6 different countries to race – Spain, Italy, England, Germany, Japan, New Zealand
  • traveled to 4 different states domestically to train – Miami (FL), Oyster Bay (NY), Newport (RI), San Francisco (CA), Santa Barbara (CA), San Diego (CA)
  • earned a spot in the Medal Race (top 10) in 2 regattas
  • finished 9th at the 2019 World Championships
  • are currently winning the US Olympic Trials to represent USA in the 2020 Tokyo Games

February 2020 will mark exactly two years since we started this journey together and it will mark the start of our second Olympic Trials event in Geelong, Australia. We are 60% of the way to our crowdfunding goal and we have 51 days left till the first day of racing at the 2020 World Championships.
