I have just finished Holland Regatta in Medemblik and for my first big international regatta I just couldn’t be happier with my result. I ended up 5th overall just putting some pressure on the front girls. We had a large range of conditions from 15knots + to drifting 3knots. I have always loved competing in Holland, minus the cold… it is a cute town, happy people and loads of bicycles. We had a great support next work with us at this event and it definitely showed. The Australian Sailing Team was so successful with 2 Golds, 1 Silver and 2 Fifths…so the whole team was in the top 5.
Fletch and I feel this is a great start to my campaign towards London with only two months back in the boat. We are now just working on putting a whole lot of little things together to work to the front of the fleet.
My first regatta at Scheveningen, North Sea went well also as I finished 4th overall against boys and girls mixed. It was a tricky, predominately light air event with a lot of tide influence.
The next plan is to have a week off to have a little look around Italy before heading off to an AIS fitness camp for two weeks before heading into Germany for the next ISAF Grade One event. For extra info have a look at the websites below.
