The Sailing academy in Portland has just closed for sailors. The Olympic organization is making their last preparations at the venue, just as everybody else, which has forced us to change our training facilities.
Next time when we come back to Weymouth we will move in to the newly built Olympic village. The upcoming month will mean many new impressions.

The confidence that we earned by experiencing the Olympic games in 2008 Beijing gives us a lot of momentum right now. We know what to expect.
