First day out on the water with what is likely to be the Olympic training squad for 2016. I was sailing with Sophie Ainsworth who has this cycle decided to make the jump from the 470 into something a little faster. The breeze was pretty strong and for Sophie who had not been on a cat before, it was a bit of a baptism of fire! But actually things went pretty smoothly. Sophie was able to pick things up really quickly and we were actually pretty fast at times. 

I have my university graduation tomorrow so im not training. But back on it Thursday and Friday. Check back to find out how the rest of the training is going, and a possible photo of me in a graduation gown!
