The Miami World Cup has come to a close and sadly so has our campaign to represent Canada at the 2016 Summer Olympics. This regatta was the North American continental qualifier and was our final chance to qualify Canada for one of only 20 country berths. After a good qualifying series at the beginning of the regatta, we were able to qualify for Gold Fleet. We pushed hard all week but were unable to finish ahead of the top American teams who all sailed extremely well. While not qualifying for the 2016 Olympics is a hard reality to face, we have had an incredible journey along the way. The places we've been, the people we've met, and the hard work we've put into our campaign over the last two and a half years has been an experience of a lifetime. Even though we have some big decisions to make about our futures, sailing is our passion and our journey does not end here. We will be representing Canada in the 2016 World Championships next week in Clearwater, Florida where we hope to build off of our gold fleet performance this past week.
