Krystal Wins ISAF World Cup, in Holland
It has been a challenging week of racing in Holland. We had 5knots on day one follow by 10knots the next day. It was a tight battle amongst the small girls in the light winds on day one.I came away with a 2,4,2,4 which is nice and consistent. Day Two I was able to pull away further from the fleet and gain a 10point buffer on Tina from Croatia.
This morning we raced the final heat which helped me with a 17point gap leading into the Medal race. This definitely took the pressure off heading into Medal.
The prize giving was an amazing stage setup with bands all night. They invited the general public of Holland to come and farewell the Dutch team to the Olympics. It was a fantastic vibe and one of the best Prize givings I have ever been to.
I want to take this opportunity to thank my coach Laura Baldwin for her tireless effort in helping me achieve my goal of Gold in 2012 in London. This is a great step in the right direction. Also to my family and friends at home, my Yacht Club Sandringham for always supporting me and my sponsors from YA Audi, Hamilton Island, Ronstan, Liros/ deck hardware & my personal sponsors Veolia, Tudor Insurance, VIS.
