SPA 2001 been there done that.

Well we came we saw and we were conquered. Yes it is true you can’t take seven months off and come back into the international racing circuit and expect to kick some arse. Well I didn’t expect it, but it would have been nice.Day 5. We were greeted with rain and a little bit of wind, it cleared and the wind kicked in for the windiest race of the regatta. Just one race.I started well and rounded the top mark in 9th I battled with guys around me; I went up and down in positions and finally finished 10th. I had a crash at the bottom mark with an Israeli competitor, in which I fell. (Not common in my style of racing.) So there you go 15th overall. A good start but that’s all. I was impressed with the way some of the other competitors sailed. It’s great that they are performing now, letting me know what the level is I need to achieve. All I really need is hours on the water to toughen up the body and get in to competition mode. Next up. Jay-Jay and catch the ferry to Newcastle and drive to Scotland to catch up with her Grandparents. We hope to have a little look around, check out my roots and hit the gym with some good base hours on the water. Not sure where I will be training out of, all I do know is Scotland is surrounded with water so it shouldn’t be to hard to find the wet stuff, my only concern is it will be cold. Next regatta in Keil Week in Germany June 20-24th. With more hours under the belt a top 5 position should be attainable.Till I have more news. Take it easy and enjoy. Oh yes any newsy stuff that I would be interested in send it through.Regards Aaron McIntosh.
