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.

The amount of support we've received from all of our supporters and sponsors has been incredible. Thank you to KUBRA, Air Canada, CIBC, Toronto Pearson International Airport, Medcan, UCC Industries, The Royal Canadian Yacht Club, the Canadian Sailing Team/équipe canadienne de voile, and all of our supporters for making this campaign possible. We would also like to personally thank Paul Currie, Alan May, Paul Sustronk, and our families for the support and mentorship you've shown us since we started this journey.

Congratulations to our American competitors and friends on qualifying for the Olympics. We'll see you all in Clearwater next week!

We're happy to say that we qualified for Gold Fleet. It wasn't our best sailing today, but we're still in the battle. We have a steep hill to climb - time to step up the aggression!

Thanks for all the support so far,

We're pretty happy with how today went, although a few small changes and we would have been really happy with it. We're still in the hunt and on the cusp of Gold Fleet.

One more day of qualification, points are tight!
