2014 has been a foundational year for us, and we’re so glad you’ve been a part of it!
Here’s 2014 By the Numbers.
#1 – the spot on the 2015 US Sailing Team Sperry Top-Sider that we earned at the World Championships in Santander in September
2 consecutive FX Women’s National Championship titles and also the number of new graduates on the team 😉 (Paris from Coronado High, Helena from Stanford University)
4 less bones and internal organs broken than last year
5 countries raced in (USA, Spain, Germany, Finland, Brazil)
7 regattas sailed
30 hours on the ferry from Kiel, Germany to Helsinki, Finland
38 days of racing our hearts out
47 days training hard (to be more than doubled next year!)
52 countries have people that viewed our website
71 flights total between us, for FX training and racing only (yikes!)
583 days until the Rio Olympics
826 was our sail number for the year
1088 awesome Facebook fans cheering us on no matter where we are
1503 is the hull number of our new boat this year, which we got in March
1783 new freckles for Helena… Paris counted ‘em.
