Boltenhagen

We have arrived into Boltenhagen, Germany in preparation for the Worlds that begin in a weeks time. The full rig boys are currently racing in the tricky light conditions. The venus is a cute little town right up the top of Northern Germany which means we are dealing with some cold conditions. On Day one when we were unloading the boats & launching the coach boat it was 7degrees outside. We also found out that this resort is actually for cross country skiing as it is completely flat & freezing cold. Our accommodation is perfect and it definitely is made for the cold conditions as it is very cosy inside with a inside fire. We will be toasting marshmallows later on in the week for sure....

Hyeres ISAF Grade 1

It has been a great week of racing in Hyeres. We had a long week as many times we were sent out to race in 30knots to the outter course. Once we were all ready to race the commitee had trouble setting courses & sent us to shore. We would then sit onshore for an hour & be sent out again into the 30knots. Overall I am happy with my performance during the week. The finishing place of 7th is disappointing considering my abilities this week. I had a great week showing how close I am to podium time. Laura & I are on track towards London & looking forward to the next few weeks of training before the Worlds in Germany. ...

Krystal wins Womens Australian Nationals

After a tight battle with Tristan Brown of WA Krystal finishes second overall in the Open Laser Radial and first overall in the Womens.  It was a tough day on the water with another tricky easterly wind on Morton Bay. We had two races in under 10knots. In the first race I started towards the boat and played the shifts up the middle of the course while a group of young New Zealanders all headed out to the left. I rounded the top mark in 6th slowly climbing back to 4th spot. The next race I had a great start in the middle of the line, playing the shifts perfectly up the middle and protecting left where I could. I rounded the top mark with a comfortable lead...

Update on Perth Training, Sail Melbourne, Training at VIS & SYC adventures

Update on Perth Training, Sail Melbourne, Training at VIS & SYC adventures. Over the past two months Laura (my coach) and I have had two camps in Perth with Marit Bouwmeester of the Netherlands for Worlds preparation. Perth is the venue for the ISAF Worlds which is the Olympic country nomination and selection. The first camp was for two weeks and the second was a four-day racing regatta where we invited only the top girls to compete. Laura and I took the time to really settle into Fremantle and to find all our favourite spots in preparation for Worlds Back at home I have been in solid training with Johnny Rodgers of the VIS along with Jeremy O’Connell my training partner. We went out one day on...
