Heading to Miami is a staple of our year and has been since the beginning. The weather, location, lifestyle make the spot very unique. For us Canadian sailors, it is one of the few international event areas within North America, making it a logistical benefit. We noted our comfort in the area within our first week of time there, something that helped our confidence and focus. Along with this a Canadian National Team camp was held, bringing all of the athletes and staff together; with many interesting discussions and physical activation/recovery workshops. These factors created the environment for a fun and purposeful training block.
