With 500 days now till the start of the London 2012 Olympics Luke and I are very happy with our 470 campaign.

We are currently in Palma training hard on the water, knowing that this last winter has been one of our most productive.

This summer will bring lots of competition to our home waters here on Portland. We look forward to showing the foreigners the way around Weymouth Bay.

The facilities at Weymouth and Portland national sailing academy, home of sailing for the 2012 Olympics, are pretty much finished.

That alone gives us a slight opportunity to gain a home advantage. Like i say, only 500 days away........hip hip, hooray!
