Sydney, Australia (February 17, 2023) – With three events remaining in SailGP Season 3, the United States SailGP Team needs to to make up ground to finish in the top three overall for the Grand Final on May 6-7 in San Francisco, CA. Currently sitting 7th in the nine-team field, the 11 point deficit isn’t their only problem.
Strategist Erika Reineke has been sidelined for SailGP Sydney after a misstep yesterday during training resulted in a fractured fibula. “It felt great to be back on the boat with the team,” Reineke said. “We were just getting into the mix with practice when the injury happened.”
During a maneuver, Reineke’s shoe caught in the trampoline as she crossed the F50, resulting in a fall on top of her foot. “I am gutted to not be racing with the team and understand the recovery will take some time, but I’ll be cheering them on from afar and know I’ll be back in action soon…”
