Olympic Test Event: Haeger & Provancha Defend Position on Day 2

US Sailing Team Sperry's Women's 470 team of Annie Haeger and Briana Provancha reflect on the racing so far in Rio.

Annie Haeger and Briana Provancha successfully defended their 2nd place overall position with a solid 3,6 scoreline. “It was very different from yesterday. We were on the inside course, so it was a current-driven race [day]," said Haeger. "The coaches were the real MVPs today. We had a solid game plan every race, and executed." Provancha added that a balanced approach to training on both the open-ocean and inner-harbor courses has been beneficial. “We’ve spent a lot of time down here, and worked hard in the practice races to be able to form a game plan and get our communication on point. The plan is working. We are doing what we’ve been practicing, but we have a long way to go until next Summer. Everyone [in the fleet] is racing well, so we’re trying to minimize mistakes."
