Signs of progress emerged mid-event but the last three days the team "clicked" and never looked back. The qualification for the medal round was the goal! This would have been their first set of medal races but Steph Roble and Maggie Shea SENT IT! (As the young kids say). The photo above is the team winning their first race ever -- and to do it at a World Championships!!
Here are the scores. They were 10th, 12th the first two days but then "clicked". Here's a favorite moment as they led a race for the first time in an opportune moment as the Crown Prince of Denmark drove by.
And it all began with a girl in a small boat sailing on a small lake in the ILYA.
