After a good regatta in Palma, it’s been a busy couple of weeks training in Weymouth before heading to Germany for the Worlds at the weekend.
On reflection Palma was a good regatta with progress on the things we have been working on. Starting was a primary goal and it was a little disappointing to pick up an OCS but after a good look at the video it may have been a little unjust! You have to deal with things you can’t control and the remainder of the regatta was good. Things didn’t quite go my way in the medal race and silver it was.
After a couple of days rest it was straight back out on the water. It has been good to get out on the Olympic waters and now with less than 100 days to go it’s getting very exciting. At times it has still been pretty tough, particularly cold and very windy so it’s been tiring and the days seem to disappear so quickly.
Today has been the first day off for a while. After swapping over cars this morning for a shinny new Volvo with some sweet branding (Union Jack on the bonnet) I managed to get out windsurfing this afternoon with a bunch of other sailors. It was so much fun to get out there with friends and such nice weather, well sunny and windy! Back out in the Laser tomorrow then a big pack up as the van heads out to Germany.
