Friday was the final day of racing (except for the Medal Race for the top 10 in each class), and the breeze was expected to be in the mid 20’s with an offshore breeze. This direction would make it very shifty and unstable for todays racing. I was feeling good going into the last day, hoping to make up some ground in the standings. My legs weren’t in as much pain as I had imagined they would be, and it made me happy to know that my gym time was paying off.
Racing was shortly under way once we arrived to the race course, and we were already seeing a mixed variation of shifts and wind velocity. I was prepared for anything!!
I scored a 36, 28, 40 for the last 3 races in the Gold fleet. I moved up to 51st, which may not sound good, but isn’t the worst either considering the depth in talent here. I am trying to take one regatta at a time and work on areas that need development. I am very excited for the upcoming months leading to the World Champs in Santander, Spain.
But first I will be back in the boat tomorrow right here in Mallorca. I have decided to stay a week longer and do some training with teams that are still around, rather than head to France by myself and train there. I will also be back on my gym program which I’m excited about. This week will be about training hard and working on fitness.
My next regatta will be in Hyères, France for another World Cup regatta. Looking to improve in every event, but making the Gold Fleet at these regattas, with the talent, is a challenge in its own.
Again thank you all so much for your support. I greatly appreciate it.
