I've arrived in Santander, Spain to get used to the venue of the ISAF World Championship I'll be competing in next month... #finalstretch
....Excited to sleep in a real bed after 30 days in a hotel #getmeoutofhere
2nd place in the medal race today, 7th overall in the Olympic test event. Has been a good month in Rio....
Been an interesting week and certainly didn't make it easy for myself at times, but made the medal race tomorrow. Happy to race another day
Charlie grew up in Newport Beach, California, where the influence of his father and family throughout his childhood led to a natural affinity for water sports.
He started sailing at the age of 8 and hasn’t looked back since. From there, he progressed through the junior, high school, and collegiate sailing ranks in the United States, eventually choosing to campaign for the 2016 Olympics in the Laser class after graduating from Georgetown University.
He is keen to take advantage of this opportunity and hopeful that hard work and experience will help him accomplish his high goals.
