I learned two things from my races this weekend…


1. Sometimes your equipment fails you. It’s important to focus on the positive components of the race, not the aspects that were out of your control.

2. Be polite to your competitors. You don’t by any means have to like them, but the respect and courtesy you show towards other boats says a lot more about your team than the number of medals you’ve won.
