Well the year is gradually drawing to a close and I write this as I pack to head out for Vilamoura, Portugal, for our 2nd Camp there. With the temperature in the UK dropping sharply we are able to access much warmer training here, on the same time zone, with just a 2 hour flight. Tuula enjoyed a long break from sailing after Japan and now is on the way back up while Lucia is working hard in Argentina, where the weather is much better than Europe this time of year!
Well straight after I returned from Tokyo it was time to race again myself, this time at the Radial Inlands. A solid first day saw it all to play for but lack of focus and starting at the wrong end and overlaying the windward mark twice (once on starboard and once on port) on the second day pushed me down to third overall. It just felt as if I was out of phase all day! Having said that Ben Whaley was a deserved winner.
