We would like to update you on the Epic Racing team members’ adventures while we take a quick break from match racing. The second WIM Series event will take place this weekend in France, and unfortunately, due to scheduling conflicts for most of the core team, we have to miss it. The WIM Series only counts your top four scores, so we decided as a team to redirect our funds and efforts toward the remaining three events on the WIM Series after this week: Sweden, Wisconsin and Korea.
In the meantime, we’re all doing some great cross-training. Steph just finished 7th at the J/70 North Americans in a strong 1 boat fleet. She will sail with David Storrs this weekend at the Chicago Match RaceCenter Grade 3 Double-Header. Janel is going to join Steph at CMRC, what a great opportunity to perfect their communication! Lara has beenracing bigger boats, competing at NYYC race week on a King 40 and sailing a 60′ in Maine. She will race the Snipe North Americans in Okaboji, IA. Maggie heads down to Rio De Janiero next week for the Olympic Test Event in the 49er FX with Kristen Lane.
We are sad to miss the opportunity to represent you in France this week, but we promise to bring a strong team to Sweden and make up lost ground! Hope you get out on the water this weekend. Thank you so much for your support!
