Hi everyone,

So a lot has been going on in the last few weeks! Since arriving in Germany it has been a busy rollercoaster ride full of adventures, lots of sailing and many awesome experiences.

The first week comprised of a large competition based out of an area called Kiel, where my Under-21 World Championships will be later on in the year in August. After a slow start I felt like I sailed well for the rest of the week but most importantly I learnt a lot about the venue and the conditions. I am really looking forward to returning in August!

Next was travel to another venue in Germany, Warnemünde, for a second international competition. I arrived with a few days to spare and have had two days of great training on the water in some great weather conditions. I am really excited for the start of the competition tomorrow and hopefully I can take on the learning from last week and apply it to this week’s racing!

In the meantime check out some of the photos from the trip so far:
