After the disappointment of Holland, to some extent things could only have improved. That said, it does appear that we are back o track. Pete Jary from Zest racing has done an awesome job on the hull, honestly it looks good as new.
Having collected the boat from Pete on Wednesday, Nikki and I have been making up for lost time. Over the last few days we have made great use of our time on the water. Generally it has been quite windy which has made for some epic sailing. Yesterday we literally bumped into the Sail rocket gang Paul and Helena as they got some fantastic shots of us. Stand by for more of them but here is a little taster.
Natually we are not just here to perform for the camera. Next week is the UK leg of the World Sailing Cups. There is something quite special about racing a world cup at home, not to mention it makes things 100 times easier. Having not been able to show our full colours in Holland Nikki and I are eager to make something of this one. All the information for the regatta can be found here, (http://www.sailing.org/worldcup/regattas/weymouthandportland_2015.php)but if any of you guys want to see what an olympic sailing regatta is like, This week n weymouth is the place to be.
Lastly and most importantly, This weekend my Local sailing club is hosting one of their infamous Beach parties, I am mostly hugely disappointed i cant be there to enjoy it. They are always a great laugh and very funny to see some of those that don't very often let their hair down get a bit wild. If that isn't worth the price of the ticket alone I dont know what is. Alas there a still some tickets left so give them a call and enjoy the evening. I should also point out that the evening is also supporting my Sailing campaign, so know that every beer you drink is helping me a little closer to that podium!!!!
Cheers for now, stand by for more updates and pictures.
