Cayman Islands sailor Florence Allan wrapped up her competition at the Rio 2016 Olympics Saturday (13 August) with her final two regatta races in the women’s laser radial event.

Allan finishes 36th overall through 10 races. On her final day, she finished 33rd in her ninth race of the regatta and 36th in her 10th and final race.

“It’s been hard,” Allan said after her final race. “Obviously it’s  a very tough regatta and it was hard mentally on me to keep it together because the breeze wasn’t what I was expecting coming in here at all. But even despite that, I’ve never enjoyed racing like this before. It’s just really cool to be out there.”

“As for expectations, I just wanted her to  give it all she’s got,” Allan’s coach Ralph Harvey said. “Leave it all in the water, that way you’ve got no regrets and she’s done that.”

Allan said afterward this may be her final time racing the laser radial class as her light weight compared to other sailors puts her at a disadvantage. She says if she’s in Tokyo for the 2020 Olympic Games she would compete in the nacra class.
