Every college sailing season is a grind, and with two seasons per year, it takes a lot of stamina and resilience to be successful. If you go all-out right from the beginning, you risk frustration, exhaustion, and burnout. So, try to pace yourself. Focus on making small improvements and enjoying the little successes. Have fun with your teammates and make the most of all those regatta road trips. By keeping yourself and your team fresh and motivated, you are much more likely to perform well when the pressure is on at the end of the spring season.
