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 also gone digital as you can see from the picture below. I’ve got one of these new barcode things that if you take a picture of on a smart phone you get sent to my website. I don’t have a smart phone but I’ve been told it is very cool and there are some big companies using it.

The duck is called Charlie, painted by my brother Joe and is based on the Brit Bud duck. I’m not sure how much web access I will have in Norway so keep up with the results on http://www.24worlds.org.

But first I have to travel over 2000km to get there which is going to be fun! I would like to thank Motion, Peach, Monkey Marine and Weymouth Sailing Club for helping me make the most of this opportunity.
