We introduced you to the world’s 5th-ranked match racer last week; now let’s hear what he has to say about his other job; Sailing Director for the Chicago Match Race Center. Taylor has plenty to say about his program; we were pleasantly surprised to learn that perhaps the most intimidating form of sailing has had the barriers to entry stripped right away at CMRC; for just $650 for the entire season ($950 for skippers), you can spend two to three days a week learning to race at an extremely high level. We’re headed over for our first look at CMRC in person for their Spring Invitational this weekend; come over to Belmont harbor to check out the fleet and say hello.
Edit: Taylor’s US-One Sailing Team had a nice first day at Match Race Germany; here’s their video update.
