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.
Before then I’d put together a fairly steady series and was in 5th place before the final day. We’d had light and shifty breeze throughout the week and I’d been starting well and making some good decisions which was pleasing, as these were some of the areas we’d been working on through the year.
During the worlds we had a lay-day so visited a Chinese market and there was lots of coral, turtles and jellyfish in jars. You could also by samurai swords, guns and mortars, so a bit different to the UK!
Lots of lessons learnt this season to take into the winter
