OUR TRAINING PLAN

  • Carmen & Emma have successfully campaigned for two major events. Each campaign had an “Arc” of focused training, training regattas, and multiple qualification regattas:
    • 2017 World Sailing Youth World Championships in Sanya, China
      • Qualifier #1: 2017 I-420 Midwinters Championships, Miami, Florida
      • Qualifier #2: 2017 US Youth Championships, Corpus Christi, Texas
      • Training Regatta: 2017 I-420 World Championship, Athens, Greece
      • Training Regatta: 2017 I-420 Junior Europeans, Riva del Garda, Italy
      • Training Regatta: 2017 I-420 Atlantic Coast Championships, Greenwich, Connecticut
    • 2018 World Sailing Youth World Championships in Corpus Christi, Texas
      • Qualifier #1: 2018 I-420 North American Championships, Miami, Florida
      • Qualifier #2: 2018 I-420 Midwinters Championships, Miami, Florida
      • Training Regatta: 2018 Kieler Woche, I-420 Fleet, Kiel, Germany
  • Carmen & Emma plan their training in “Arcs” which enables them to:
    • Try/develop new techniques, tactics, and/or approaches
    • Refine these skills and integrate them into their existing routines, and
    • Build on our progress with a goal of reaching “peak” performance targeted at key events
  • During the “Arc,” Carmen & Emma may compete in regattas which serve as a part of the overall training “Arc”
    • Enables them to test their developing techniques and skills under “regatta conditions”
    • Training Regatta results are less emphasized in favor of achieving progress on the overall training “Arc”
  • After each “Arc,” Carmen & Emma take a “checkpoint” – which is absolutely critical. Each checkpoint allows them to:
    • Reflect on their performance during the “Arc”
    • Evaluate what worked and what didn’t work
    • Identify key items to work on in their next training “Arc”
    • Rest: step away, disconnect, sleep, recover, and recharge
