Saying Thank You to Sarah Chin

Dear Supporters,

As the spring Olympic training and racing circuit gets up and running there are a few changes to report.

With much regret I must announce that Sarah has decided to move on from Olympic campaigning. This was an incredibly difficult decision to make and I want to be the first to thank Sarah for all of the contributions she has made over the past 9 years to Team GO SAIL. Sarah has been an incredible friend, teammate, athlete and leader and I have become a better person for knowing her. Sharing the Olympic experience in 2008 with Sarah by my side is something I will keep forever.

To those who found Team GO SAIL through Sarah, Thank you for your support. I hope you will continue to follow the campaign and I look forward to updating you on Team GO SAIL’s progress toward the 2012 Olympics.

Stay tuned.

Amanda Clark
