We are very happy with the winter training we have had this year, and are now at a stage where we are waiting for the racing season to begin.

Next week we will participate in the second world cup regatta of the year in Palma Mallorca.

Followed by the third in Hyeres France, which will be the last trip away for a while.

We then bring the whole Olympic sailing world here to Portland in the run up to the very important sail for gold 2011.
