Despite being back home for less than a week I was back on my travels once again, this time heading to Medemblik, in the Netherlands, for the annual Medemblik Regatta (formally Delta Lloyd Regatta).

With just my coach and fellow British Sailing Team Laser sailor, Elliot Hanson, we drove out in one of the team Volvos and went straight into our training.


We got one fantastic day on the water, with some light and shifty wind making training very interesting.


Unfortunately I had a disastrous start to the regatta and was immediately on the back foot going into day 2.

My performance throughout the week went from strength to strength and I really found my form upwind in the last three fleet races, leading around every first windward mark.

Despite my performance getting better throughout the week I missed out on the medal race and ended up finishing 13th overall, not a result I am happy with.


On the plus side I did get some fantastic rides under my belt in the amazing Dutch weather.

Up next for me is a small rest before heading off to the RS Aero Nationals later this week with my brother Ben, I'm really looking forward to be racing this fantastic boat again!

Thanks for reading.
