London, UK (April 30, 2013): This is Taylor Canfield's first year as a Tour Card Holder on the Alpari World Match Racing Tour.  It is well deserved that he competes as a Tour Card Holder this year, after winning the Argo Group Gold Cup in Bermuda and the Monsoon Cup last year!  Beating past champions such as Adam Minoprio and Ian Williams. 

 

He is the youngest skipper on the tour at only 24, and he originates from the US Virgin Islands.  His team, USOne consists of: Rod Dawson (NZL) Tactician, Hayden Goodrick (NZL) Bowman, Mike Rehe (USA) Trimmer and Dan Morris (USA) Trimmer

Alpari World Match Racing Tour (AWMRT): What do you do in your spare time?
Taylor Canfiled (TC): I always like to be active. This usually involves participating in other water sports or exploring the city with my girlfriend.

AWMRT: What is your favourite drink?
TC: Alcoholic: Usually go for a Cruzan and Coke and Non-alcoholic: Iced Tea

AWMRT: What is your favourite meal?
TC: It’s a toss up between sushi and pesto pasta

AWMRT: What was your best holiday/trip?
TC: Heading back home to the USVI and cruising around the islands with all of my friends and family

AWMRT: What do you eat for breakfast on the day of a big race?
TC: Usually have some toast with peanut butter and banana

AWMRT: What is your favourite colour?
TC: Blue

AWMRT: What do think is your best feature?
TC: Driven to be the best I can be

AWMRT: What song gets you the most motivated?
TC: Shipping up to Boston by Dropkick Murphy 

AWMRT: What was the first boat you skippered?
TC: Optimist

AWMRT: Did you always know you wanted to be a professional sailor?  If not, what else did you want to be?
TC: I knew it from the beginning

AWMRT: Who was you hero when you were a child?
TC: Peter Holmberg

AWMRT: If you were stranded on a desert island, which person would you want with you?
TC: My girlfriend

AWMRT: If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
TC: Invisible…flying would be cool too

AWMRT: What is your favourite boat to sail, on and off the tour?
TC: On the tour is probably TOM28. Off the tour would be Melges 24, love going fast

AWMRT: What sailing events are you competing in outside of the tour?        
TC: Been sailing in all of the Melges fleets, M20, M24, and M32.

AWMRT: Where were you born and where do you live now?  
TC: I was born in St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands and I currently live in Chicago

AWMRT: Do you have a lucky item?  
TC: No, I am not superstitious

AWMRT: Do you have a ritual before a big day of racing?     
TC: No rituals, but I am a firm believer in routine. During a regatta I like to do everything the same before racing. Wake up at the same time, rig the boat the same way etc.

AWMRT: Who do you think is going to be your biggest competition this year?           
TC: Ian Williams

AWMRT: It is your first time as a TCH this season, what will be your strategy on winning events?       
TC: As a first time tour card holder, I believe that we are both disadvantaged in some cases, while having a slight advantage in others.  As the youngest, new team on the tour, we are slightly unfamiliar with many of the boats and venues.  Only having sailed 3 events last year, we are very unfamiliar with the other 4.  On the other side of things, we have sailed against and beat all of the skippers on the tour, yet as a first time TCH do not have too big expectations going into the 2013 season.  We plan to go into each event with an open mind and sail in the moment...each race as its own entity.

AWMRT: All the TCH are well experienced on the Tour. Are you mentally ready for the challenge?
TC: While we are definitely younger and less experienced than the other TCHs, we as a team are confident and disciplined.  We have proven that we are not negatively affected by the pressure that comes with the intensity of the events. I think it is our ability to accept losses and move on to our next race that will keep us mentally strong throughout each event.

AWMRT: Will you be aiming to win the CMC event this season? Are there other events you will be focusing on?     
TC: As I said before, we will be sailing one race at a time.  While I feel like we will have a bit of an advantage at our home venue in the TOM 28s which we probably sail more often than the other TCHs, no regatta will be easy this season.  While we sail to win the race that we are currently sailing, we will fight for every point with hopes to make it through to the next round.  I will say that I am a fan of the lighter shifty venues, and it would be nice to go defend out two titles from the 2012 season

AWMRT: What is your goal this season?         
TC: I would say our main goal for the season is to continue to develop as a team.  While the chemistry and team work on the boat is great, we have only been sailing together for a year.  We hope to be in the hunt for the AWMRT Championship come Monsoon Cup in December.
