Hola equipo!
I can-not thank you enough for your support in making this journey possible and pitching in to pay for training camps, travel and equipment for the games. It was a privilege to have had the opportunity to sail against the best sunfish sailors in the world and to have spent time with previous, current and future Olympic medalists in many different classes. It was an extremely hard event with a very experienced sunfish fleet. I walk away with many lessons and great memories. I got to experience first-hand the level of commitment and dedication it takes to be in contention for a medal at the games and will reflect on my future sailing plans. It was an honor to represent Mexico and be part of this adventure with all of you. I am extremely grateful and hope this one to be the first of many adventures with you.

Hola equipo!

Después de no haber podido velear los primeros dos días, hemos logrado completar 5 regatas con vientos desde 3 hasta 16 nudos de velocidad. Esto lo a hecho un evento muy competitivo ya que todos hemos tenido regatas con la velocidad de viento que mas nos favorece. Correr contra los mejores veleristas de sunfish del mundo a sido muy divertido y estoy aprendiendo mucho. Hemos tenido regatas muy buenas y otras malas pero ahi vamos! Queda la mitad del evento! Vamos por mas.

Un abrazo a todos!

Hola equipo!

Hoy arranco el primer día de competencia! Desafortunadamente no hubo suficiente viento para navegar y nos tuvieron en tierra todo el día. Fue un día largo de espera, calma y paciencia. Ni modo! Así pasa y esta es la naturaleza de este deporte que tanto amamos. Mañana intentaremos otra vez! Nos sentimos listos física y mentalmente para las condiciones que nos toquen!
Les dejo unas fotos y los mantendré al tanto durante los siguientes días. La serie es larga y están previstos días de reserva para situaciones como esta; así que vamos con todo!
También les dejo el link de los resultados:

Y no se olviden de seguir las regatas en vivo a través de la aplicación “trac trac”!!!

Hola todos!

The opening ceremony was a night I will never forget! The moment the Olympic fire turned on the Pan American torch and officially commenced the games, I felt a special connection with every athlete there. It was our night, a celebration for us and the values represented during the Olympic cycle such as discipline, commitment, passion, respect, competition and love for a healthy lifestyle. I hope you were able to watch in online!

We are now in Paracas – the sailing venue for the games, a little sea town 200 miles south from Lima. The boat and all of our equipment is ready and fast! The weather is a little chilly but nothing like the cold winters at school in NY. The food has been great and the hotel is phenomenal! Just a 2 minute walk from the boat park…

As we get close to the first day of racing in only 3 days, I have been preparing mentally and physically so that we are at our best.

Enjoy some pictures and stay tuned for more updates!
