Sail For Gold has proved to be a very positive event for me leading into a training block over the next three months. It was disappointing to not get into the Medal Race due to a blackflag on the last race but the benefits far outway it.
I had a mixed regatta with plenty of ups and downs. After only having been back in the class for 6months it is encourageing to be up there with the best girls in the world.
I finished 17th overall with Marit from NED winning the event, Sari from FIN and Sara Winther NZL.
