Laser Nationals Plymouth 2018 blog post
For me, the Laser Nationals were very challenging and I felt like I struggled all week. Nevertheless, I tried to make sense of each day and learn from them all. There were light to medium winds all week consistenly from the same direction which meant that racing was very similar and frustrating at times. Day 2 was abandoned due to a lack of wind but, apart from this, we sailed every day. I finished 34th overall in the Radial fleet and only scored an 18th as my best result for the week. This was obviously very disappointing for me. I’m now looking forwards to the Radial Youth Worlds in Kiel, Germany.

Lymington Laser Youth Open 2018 30th June/1st July
The Lymington Youth Laser Open was held this weekend in lots of sun but unfortunately not much wind. Day 1 consisted of only 2 races which I found very challenging as there was so much tide. I scored a 12th and 15th in these which was disappointing. A 3rd race was attempted which was going well for me but the wind soon died and it was abandoned. Day 2 was better for me and it started with a bit more wind. I was able to win the only race of the day and I was eventually able to get my strategy right. However, the day was soon abandoned afterwards due to not enough wind. This put me in 7th overall. Not the best weekend for me but it has given me plenty to do.

Laser Radial Youth Squad Training 31st May/3rd June blog post
From the 31st May to the 3rd June, I spent the end of my half term training in Weymouth as part of the youth summer squad. The camp was very useful for me as the worlds approach and I learned lots from the coaches and sailing with the others. It was quite a light wind 4 days which was accompanied by lots of towing around in the fog too! Overall, it was a great few days and I’m looking forwards to doing it again this weekend.
