Well that was quite an exciting end to the season! Whilst my performance at times has been far from perfect it has definitely been an eventful couple of months and one that I will remember for a long time and take all the learning from. Follow my journey over the past few months below:
So whilst my first senior world championships didn't go to plan I'm still very happy to have been able to compete against the best in the world. I know I can do so much better and am looking forward to next year where I will hopefully be able to show everyone what I'm capable of.
I quickly returned back to the UK and was straight off up to Sunderland for the first of the autumn UK national qualifier events. It was a great weekend with warm temperatures and great conditions on the water - I would even go as far as saying the best qualifier ever?! Anyway, after some really close battles I finished 3rd overall behind fellow team mates Micky Beckett and Jack Wetherell. Special shout out to my parents who drove my brother and I to and from the event, we wouldn't have been able to do it without you!
After a few days of rest I was fired up to go to the Europeans, held in Barcelona, Spain.
Whilst it was quite upsetting to have not finished the Europeans in the way I would of liked it I knew my foot was in a bad way and enjoyed some nice rest back home before getting ready to try a new style of sailing with my younger brother Ben, double handed sailing in the Endeavour Trophy. Find there full report on that here:
So the Endeavour finished and allowed me to get back home and start my preparations for moving to Weymouth for winter training. Although the picture below isn't really preparing for the move the surf was too good to ignore!
So what next? Well having moved to Weymouth now I am settling into my training routine, setting clear goals to ensure that I am making progress 24/7 and doing everything I can to ensure that my success is inevitable.
I have a few upcoming weeks of training in Weymouth before heading out for the Palamos Christmas Race, always a great event that I am really looking forward to.
