It has been a great trip so far with a great result in Kiel, which helped in my selection onto the Australian Sailing Team and the Olympic Team test event spot.
I have just returned from a weeks sailing in Finland. We had the European Championships for all classes based out of Helsinki. It was a tough regatta with mostly light conditions under 5knots. I had an up and down championship finishing 12th overall. I am happy with my result in these trying conditions.
It was an exciting trip back down to the UK as our car has a mind of its own and decides to start when it wants to. We took each stage of the trip on bit by bit, keeping it a “flexible” program 😉 We had two ferry to catch one Helsinki to Travemunder, GER then drive to Holland (6hrs), ferry Hook Holland to Warwich then 5 hours driving. It was a relief to hit the shores of Dorset, UK.
I am now in Weymouth hitting the gym before Laura Baldwin arrives to begin training.
I just want to take this opportunity to thank Nocka for his contribution to my program over the past two months and to wish him the best of luck on the AC45 cats in the lead up to the Americas Cup.
