Racing on CHARIAD has taught me the skills to be a better sailor but also the confidence to lead teams and overcome obstacles in my professional life. I enjoy racing to win, but also having fun on and off the boat—and CHARIAD provides plenty of opportunities for all of that!
I always appreciate Rick Williams’s ability to teach less experienced crew the nuances of racing. CHARIAD is a technical boat that requires many hands to sail well. I enjoy the range of age and experience found among the crew, and that critical roles are played by women.
My sailing memories won’t go anywhere, and I truly miss my time on CHARIAD.
