Getting ready to take on the World after summer fun

I am up in Ardingly at the moment finishing my packing for the world Championships in Norway. I’m really looking forward to a good end of the season. I had a frustrating time in Weymouth earlier in the summer but am confident I can put a good event together in a very hot competition. I’ve had a great two weeks in Weymouth enjoying the summer. I’ve done some 2.4 training in the bay which was awesome. It is so much better than the harbour. I’ve also had some great evening Sailing. Thanks to everyone who let me sail. So thanks to the guys on Rumrunner, Scoline, Draig O’r Mor, Mayfly, Aldebaran and Joe, James and my Dad who helmed for me in the Merlin. It was rather frustrating losing to Draig in the ladies race last night by 5 seconds but it was a great laugh on Scoline and it was a pleasure to sail with such a great crew. But good luck to Kay and the guys for the Fastnet.

I’ve been back from Hyeres for three days. I’ve been sailing with my brother in our Merlin dinghy which was exciting if not a little hap hazard.

I left for Miami on Wednesday. For some reason I had to transfer through New York which wasn't great but apparently it was cheaper.

I finally made it to St Petersberg in Florida on Friday after having a two hour delay in London to change a wheel on the plane which meant I missed my connection in Atlanta, but luckily I didn’t have to wait long for the next plane.

Hard day 4 and 5. Day 4 for me was a bit disappointing as I did not perform to my best and let a medal slip from my grasp.

Day 1 of Miami OCR was very uneventful as big rain clouds were forecasted so the race committee decided not to send us out racing as they were not sure it they would bring too much wind and thunder and lightning.
