Today was a very exciting race I was sitting in second position throughout the race after having a few great shifts up the first work but on the last downwind I was covered by a blanket of boats from behind. I lost 4 boats on the last 200m to the last mark to the finish.
It was amazing to have the Australian crowd cheer me on from the point, I could hear all the chanting..very exciting and for sure I hiked harder!
Overall it was a great regatta, and a good way to see into the future for next year. I am definitely in the medal hunt for 2012. Bring it on!
