Looking back over the past three weeks we spent in the UK, we covered a lot of areas and successfully reached our goals for the trip. The overall focus of the trip was to get some quality racing against some of the UK's best while testing and preparing the equipment we will be using to try and qualify Canada a spot at the 2016 Olympics over the next few months. On Tuesday we loaded up our boat and equipment headed for Buenos Aires for the 2015 World Championships before flying back to Canada for a single day. We are currently on the road heading for San Francisco where we will be competing in the Melges 20 World Championships this coming week! ... See MoreSee Less

We're back at it here in the UK. We had a few solid days of training before racing in the British National Championships hosted at Hayling Island Sailing Club this past weekend. We had a great weekend of racing with windy conditions and throughout the event we had a good crack to be on top of the podium. After 13 races we finished in 3rd overall.
We have one more week of training before loading our boats into a container headed to Buenos Aires, Argentina for the 2015 World Championships! Our sponsors have really stepped up to make this event possible for us, huge thank you to them and all our supporters. ... See MoreSee Less
Mary Helen BarnesSaw this on the UK 49er Class Association page: "Wavy last day added to the tide and wind from previous two days.
