We are honored to be the top-ranked US Women's 470 Team on the US Sailing Team Sperry Top-Sider, vying for a spot at the 2016 Olympic Games. We will need a wide base of support to achieve our ultimate goal, a gold medal in Rio.
Our mission is to train and compete to the absolute best of our abilities, to represent our country and sponsors with pride, to exhibit exemplary sportsmanship to our competitors, and to be model athletes for the upcoming generation. Feel free to check out our website www.teamhp470.com
Building off the success that we found in college, including 10 national championships combined, we dove into full-time Olympic sailing in 2012. We have proven ourselves to be one of the top teams in the world, having carried the World #1 ranking for three months this Spring! We are currently ranked fourth under the ISAF World Rankings, and secured seven top-five finishes in the 2013 470 ISAF circuit.
We are asking that you make a small financial contribution to our campaign, which will support the purchase of racing sails for two competitions: the 2014 Sailing World Cup Miami and the 2014 ISAF Combined World Championships in Santander, Spain. A mainsail costs $1,200, a jib $700, and a Spinnaker $800, totaling $2,700. Once we include shipping and other fees, we are looking at $3,000 per set. Our goal is to acquire two full sets.
To continue to compete at the highest level, we will need to set an aggressive training schedule for 2014. We will be continually working hard on the water as we attempt to peak next Summer. This means less time available to build support, and that's where we need help!
Thank you for your support. Remember that even $20 goes a long way and will be greatly appreciated!
