2023 Racing Season

Please consider supporting my European Racing campaign by donating to Whitemarsh Boat Club High Performance! My coach, M Sean Hall, and I have set an ambitious schedule of summer racing that will include:

  • The Bled International Regatta; Bled, Slovenia: June 9 to 11
  • World Cup 2; Varese, Italy: June 16 to 18
  • Henley Royal Regatta, Princess Royal Challenge Cup: June 27 to July 2
  • World Cup 3; Lucerne, Switzerland: July 7 to 9

These races will help me gain invaluable, racing experience in preparation for US National Team trials in Mercer, New Jersey at the end of July. Because of changes in the selection process for the US National team, this is currently my only path to the 2024 Paris Olympics.

I will represent the US at World Cup 2 and 3, in the lightweight single. However, all of the racing and traveling will be self-funded. Therefore, support is very much needed and appreciated.

All support will go to cover:
  • Transportation
  • Equipment
  • Housing
  • Race Fees

P.S. Whitemarsh Boat Club is a non-profit, and all donations are tax-deductible.

I will send a thank you in the form of a snazzy postcard from somewhere in Europe (sorry New Jersey!) for any gift over $50. Thank you in advance!
