Jan 2015

It didn’t take me long to escape the cold of the UK and 2015 kicked off with a training camp in Gran Canaria at the start of January where it was good to get some sailing done in the swell. I then headed to Miami for the first ISAF World Cup of 2015. We had […]

2014

2014 started frustratingly slowly with illness meaning I was forced to spend some time out of the boat. But thanks to the support of the great support staff on the British Sailing Team it ended with 4 regattas in 4 weeks on 3 different continents! My 4 week regatta spree was great fun, racing at […]

2013 and onwards

If you’d told me at the start of 2013 that by the end of the year I’d have medaled 4 times at major regattas Id have been pretty chuffed.   But I’m not!   3 of those medals were a disappointment and the other one was just a relief. I’m driven by high standards and […]

The Worlds End….

So the worlds didn’t end up quite how I had planned.  Unfortunately with 2 days of racing to go I got some food poisoning and although I tried to see the regatta out I ended up missing the last 2 races. Diarrhoea in a wetsuit is not great…Which meant that I finished up 17th overall. […]

There’s some pretty weird food at the supermarket-pigs tails, chickens feet and sea-cucumbers and a lot of stuff which you can’t tell what it […]

After a very tricky weeks racing in shifty winds in Dublin Bay it was pleasing to finish the Europeans in 3rd place!   Annalise Murphy of Ireland dominated the event and I sailed a pretty consistent series to finish up third. We rotated between two different course areas throughout the week. The first couple of […]

Ready for the Euros

I’ve had a great weeks training so far in Dun Laoghaire. It’s mainly been light winds although today we got some hiking in. It’s been pretty shifty with quite a lot of tide which should make for tight racing. The first day we sailed I saw a seal as we left the harbour which was […]

Off to Ireland

I’ve had a good few weeks training since Rio and I’m now in Ireland for a week of training before the Radial Europeans start in Dun Laoghaire. I raced the RS200 nationals with James Peters in Mounts Bay Cornwall. The 200’s are a really friendly fleet and it was a good fun event. Crewing rather […]

Rio!

The last couple of weeks have been spent training in Rio with the rest of the British squad. It was the first time I’ve sailed in Rio and a great opportunity to start learning about the tide and wind conditions at the venue. We got in some great training and also got pretty good at […]
