We've been getting the training hours in during the last two weeks in Weymouth in amazing conditions.

Last week during the 'heat wave' we trained with the laser radial girls which I have to admit was quite entertaining at times, but a great week despite it starting with a fitness test!

This week the heater has been turned down a little so the shorts and t shirts have been put away for another few months but the breeze has been awesome.

The last two days we have had 20-30 knots while training against the Russian team and a couple of wipe-outs to go with it!

Tomorrow it looks like the wind should die a little (below 20knots at least!) so hopefully we will head out to the Nothe course where the spectators will be next year and beat the Russians in some training races!
