AUCKLAND, NZ - January 20, 1999 - Stay tuned to the AmericaOne website as we post reports from the team as they begin an intensive two-month training program in New Zealand. Straight from the top, here is Paul Cayard's report:
Daily Report, January 20, 1999
Another good day out on the track. More training with A True but only until 13:00 then both teams split up for an afternoon on their own. We did a lot of crew drills and rotated some new crew in. It was a great day and we stayed out until 18:00 and were the last team back to the marina.
Morgan Larson and Kevin Hall have joined AmericaOne for the training here until early March. These are the best 49er sailors in the USA at the moment, having just finished third at the World Championship last week in Melborne. Great to have them with us.
Tomorrow all day with True. Then Friday True is having a work day and we are training on our own, again working in some of the new crew. Saturday we are thinking of having an in house match race regatta with Terry Hutchinson, Morgan Larson, John Kostecki and myself all skippering teams. Sunday will be off and Monday through Friday next week we are back on with True.
