After a tricky three days of qualifying at the 2015 World Championships here in Buenos Aires, we were unable to break into the top 25. These World Championships have been the most competitive yet with Olympic qualification on the horizon and only the best from each country making the long journey down to Argentina. While we feel we had the opportunity to have performed better, we will be racing the remainder of the regatta in silver fleet. We still have a lot of very competitive racing left to do over the next three days, with some of the top teams in the world joining us in silver fleet. During the qualifying series we had quite a few positive moments that we will work to build on in the upcoming races. We're looking forward to another three days of tough racing to get in as much experience in a big fleet as we can! ... See MoreSee Less
The first few days of the South American Championships did not go as well as planned. The track was very difficult with unstable and shifting winds, even some of the best in the world struggled. We were happy to end the final day of racing on a positive note with 3 good races. Overall, it was a good opportunity to learn about the World Championships racing area. One week of final preparations before the World Championships start next Monday! ... See MoreSee Less
Today was our first sail in Buenos Aires, it also happened to be the start of the South American Championships! The rumours of the water depth are certainly true. We ran into ground not once, but twice. If the water wasn't 'chocolate milk brown' we would assess the depth as we sail, thankfully it's just mud so we didn't incur any damage.
The conditions today were very tricky, but this is exactly what we needed. Lots of boats, lots of shifts. More to come ! ... See MoreSee Less
