In January, I was named the 2016 US Sailing Rolex Yachtswoman of the Year. I had never imagined something like this would ever happen and it was a pretty unbelievable experience to go to New York for the ceremony. I am so incredibly honored to be a recipient of this prestigious award and so grateful for everyone’s support along the way.
The day I received the award was one of the craziest days of my life and there were a million things going through my head right. All I can say is do what you love, and always remember to have fun. This will always make the journey completely worth the final result, whatever that may be.
Thank you to everyone for following me along on this journey. I couldn’t have done it without your support.
