Pleased to report my training this month so far has been going well. Been very lucky with some awesome warm humid weather bringing a broad range of challenging sailing conditions with a lot to learn from!

This past week has been a very busy one on and off of the water. On the water I have been training hard focusing on my understanding of the rare weather systems that we are currently experiencing as well as a lot of technique based around my tacks and gybes. Off the water I have settled into a solid fitness, strength and conditioning program which hopefully will make me into a robust sailor coming into the summer competitions whilst also working on my rules & theory knowledge.

 An interesting mix of conditions here back home in Swanage. This photo shows one of the more stable days where I was focusing on technique through turns.

In a weeks time I'll be preparing for travelling to a big international competition in Holland, the Delta Lloyd Regatta. I'm excited in the build up and confident that I will be able to perform.
