Taylor Canfield and the US One team came into the 2016 season as the big favourites. They had won the majority of major M32 events in the previous season and spent more time in the boat than any other team and the expectations were great. After a shaky start in Fremantle the team cleaned out the rest of the season winning three consecutive events leading up to the WMRT Finals in Marstrand. At the finale they fell in an epic battle with Phil Robertson, but showed the world how strong this team can be. Taylor Canfield, representing US Virgin Islands, and his US One is back this season with a Tour Card and there is only one goal - the World Championship title.
