Laser Autumn Qualifier Weymouth and Youth Squad Training
Last weekend was the last autumn qualifier and it was a pretty light wind weekend. There was only 1 race on Saturday and the wind died half way through it! I finished 13th. Sunday was also quite light but there was enough wind this time! Unfortunately, I didnít have the best day and I finished 22nd, 20th and (25th) which meant that I finished 19th overall which I was a bit disappointed with. However, for the next 3 days, I was training with the laser standard youth squad and head coach James Gray. It was great trading with the P3 sailors as well and Iím looking forward to a good winter training with them all to get ready for the summer.

Laser Qualifier Lowestoft 2018
The 2nd autumn laser qualifier was held at Lowestoft and the weekend started with big waves and some big breeze! It was a tough day with tide having a big effect on the racing. My results were 16th, 14th and 15th. Day 2 began with very light winds and there was tide running down the course which made for a very long beat. The wind built later in the day and we had a good 5th race. My results were (20th) and 11th. This mean I finished in 16th overall.

Laser Qualifer South Shields 2018
The first autumn qualifier of the season was held at South Shields last weekend. Day 1 was around 18 knots of wind and quite shifty with some big gusts too. This made for some very interesting racing and I scored 14th (16th) and 15th. Day 2 was pretty similar with even bigger shifts and varying wind strength. I had a better day and I scored 9th, 15th and 11th putting me 14th overall out of a very strong field. Overall, I am happy with my first national in the laser standard and Iím hoping to improve on this result for the next 2 qualifiers.
