Arrival in Spain

Hello Supporters! I'm so sorry we have been out of touch. These past few weeks have been incredibly busy with organization etc.

We had two very successful fundraisers in Calgary in February and raised $23,000 towards our campaign costs.Thank you so much to everyone who helped organize, donated items, donated time, and everyone who bought tickets and showed up! It was so great to see everyone come out and support us and also just great to see friends and family we don't get a chance to very often.

We have now begun the final leg of this Olympic campaign. We left Calgary Friday night and flew to Barcelona! We will be in Europe for the next 3 months. We will train in Palma, Spain for a month with many other 470's. Then we will attend the Princess Sofea Cup in Palma (March 31-April 7). Then we will go to Spring Cup in Seyne-Sur-Mer, France (April 12-16) and Hyeres, France for French Sailing Week (April 22-27). We will then return to Barcelona, Spain and train before the 2012 470 World Championships. This is the second and final qualifier for the 2012 Olympics so hopefully all our training will culminate in us winning a berth at the games!

Please follow along on the blog, Facebook etc. We will have more regular updates now and I will hopefully get the main website pages updated very soon.

We have managed to stay awake to a reasonable bed-time hour so off to sleep and hopefully we won't be too jet lagged in the next few days.
