M32 Young American
This campaign was run by Young American sailor, Carina Becker. The team first sailed the 2019 M32 Midtown Cup in Newport, RI before combining with Young American Sailing to further their campaign. The team is sailed the beginning of the 2020 Miami Winter Series and placed 6th in the 2020 Midtown Cup Series in Newport, Rhode Island which was held over the summer and fall months.
This campaign would not have been possible without the help of Sail Newport, the M32 Class and the Magenta Project. Starting in the fall of 2018, Carina Becker participated in the Magenta Project Mentorship Program in which her mentor, Sally Barkow, suggested she use the boat for the 2019 Midtown Cup. Sally previously used the boat in the World Match Race Series and in the M32 circuit. She connected Carina with the owner of the boat, Brad Reed of Sail Newport, and with Dave Doucett, the North America M32 class manager. From there, Carina worked with Dave and Brad to create a youth team in the class.
