It’s been a busy few weeks in the build up for Sail for Gold. The regatta was a good test for the games and the last big learning opportunity about the Olympic courses. Although the regatta didn’t quite go the way I planned slipping from what would have left me second to what in the end was 4th after a mistake in the last 20 meters of the medal race. I feel that I learned several valuable lessons. In reflection, I feel positive that we are doing the right things and moving forward and with just over a month to go, I’m excited about the final run in.
This week has been a bit of a change with a few days in London with sponsors and the Sail for Gold ball. I’m back on the water next week along with a trip to Loughborough to pick up my Olympic kit. It’s unbelievable how much stuff we get and it is pretty funny to try and get it all in the back of the Volvo.
The final countdown has begun and I can’t wait!!!
