A long ten days of competition came to a close in The Hague, The Netherlands today with the ILCA 6 Medal Race, where US Sailing Team's Charlotte Rose secured 5th overall, a personal career best in the Olympic class ILCA 6.

Rose had nothing to lose going into the Medal Race. Entering in 5th overall, she'd managed to put enough points between her and 6th place Emma Plasschaert of Belgium, so the only way she could go was up the leaderboard. With all points in play above her, Rose sailed an aggressive final race in very light conditions on the North Sea. She rounded the leeward gate in 5th and ultimately dropped back to 9th to close out the race, but stood by her decisions to try mostly anything and give it her all.

"My main goal was to make the medal race, so to finish 5th means the world to me. This is a new personal best," said Rose, the two-time Youth Worlds Gold Medalist in the ILCA 6 now making her way up the Olympic class circuit. "It feels really great to qualify the United States for the Olympic Games and to represent the US on the world stage here. The best part of Worlds was being able to close my season on a good note and handle all the conditions I faced this week. It was stressful for sure. I'm happy to have some time off now to reset for the 2024 Worlds in January and the Olympic Trials in Miami."

USA has qualified for Paris 2024 in the following classes:

  • 49er, achieved by Andrew Mollerus & Ian MacDiarmid (USST) and Ian Barrows & Hans Henken (USST)
  • 49er FX, achieved by Steph Roble OLY & Maggie Shea OLY (USST)
  • Women's Formula Kite, achieved by Daniela Moroz (USST)
  • ILCA 6, achieved by Charlotte Rose (USST) and Erika Reineke (USST)
The next opportunity to qualify the United States in the remaining classes is the 2023 Pan American Games in Santiago, Chile October 28 - November 5. Meet the athletes who will represent the US and work to secure more USA tickets to Paris next year.
