The ISAF Youth Match Racing Worlds took place in Swinoujcsie, Poland, which is a very hard place to get to. Our travel itinerary had us flying into Berlin, and takin a train all the way into the small town on the German, Polish border.
Thank you so much for supporting my crew and I in the C420 North Americans! It was my first big away regatta, and although it was a pretty light air regatta, it was an exceptional experience and I was very proud to represent SDYC.
