A regatta & a flight

Last weekend was my last time sailing in WA for a while and I finished it off by competing in the Royal Perth Yacht Club Mini Series, a small two day event that attracts a large number of dinghy’s including most of WA’s best laser sailors. We had a particularly hot weekend which meant the wind stayed mostly light and pretty random. On the first day I struggled to keep consistent in the unpredictable airs which resulted in a 1st and two 2nd places behind Mark Spearmen. I managed to lift my game on day two and sailed a much better day with three 1st places and a 2nd to clinch the regatta by a point. Big thanks to Spero for keeping it tight and the race committee for making it a great event.

That night and the next day was hectic as I finalized my packing before getting to bed at 10 pm only to wake with my alarm ringing at 3 am to get the taxi to the airport to be on the plane to Sydney by 5.30 am, phew! I made it all ok and settled back into the team house we have here in Mosman and met up with team mates Mitch and Wearny.

Now just two days later I’ve already completed two on water sessions, a gym session, a morning cycle and a quick swim session. It’s been pretty busy but the routine is set now so everything’s going well. Sorry I don’t have any photos from the Mini Series but here’s one from the deck at Middle Harbor Yacht Club today.

Stay posted 🙂
