We have arrived into Boltenhagen, Germany in preparation for the Worlds that begin in a weeks time. The full rig boys are currently racing in the tricky light conditions. The venus is a cute little town right up the top of Northern Germany which means we are dealing with some cold conditions. On Day one when we were unloading the boats & launching the coach boat it was 7degrees outside. We also found out that this resort is actually for cross country skiing as it is completely flat & freezing cold.
Our accommodation is perfect and it definitely is made for the cold conditions as it is very cosy inside with a inside fire. We will be toasting marshmallows later on in the week for sure. I have began training with Sara Winther of NZL and Tulla from FIN. Should be a good week with lots of fast tracking for the Games.
It is now only 80days to go before the Olympics begin so time is flying.
On our way from Hyeres we stopped in Lake Garda for two days where I was able to go windsurfing and enjoy some gelati & pizza. This part of our trip was cut a bit short as I ended up in Hospital for a few days after the regatta, I had many tests from the doctors in France and they have given me the all clear.
Looking forward to getting time in the gym again and on the water. Wish me luck and if you want to follow the results the link is below.
