AUCKLAND (#1232) — This MUST SEE video is courtesy of the Parent Atwood Racing Facebook page. Quote-unquote: "28 hours of air travel later and we made it to New Zealand. Let’s just go out for a chill shake down sail, make sure everything on the boat is working well. Lots to learn about this new venue, step one is figuring out how to turn to gravity back on."
According to the Parent Atwood website: "Ravi Parent and Caroline Atwood are two American sailors representing the United States racing the Nacra 17 foiling catamaran. They are combining their collective two decades of high performance, catamaran, and Olympic class sailing in a bid to bring home gold at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. Together, their proven sailing skill, innate athleticism, and collaborative approach to Olympic campaigning represent a break from past American Olympic efforts and a strong chance at achieving what the US has never done before: earn a gold medal in Olympic catamaran sailing."
