Kate reported on day 4 ...

Medal race tomorrow!!!! 'I had a tough day today not my wind. Really struggling with the down wind but Gabby, Moana Delle's (the German Youth representive) coach (GER369) is confident she can help me in Kiel so thats exciting and I need to do lots of work on mark roundings!!!! 'My lack of time on the board has really showed in the slalom at the end of every race and as the wind increases. I'm going really well up wind always gaining places I just need to hold on to the end. And I can in the light, now just need to increase my wind range!!!! 'Anyway I'm tired and sore so going home to rest up. Moana's mum is here now looking after us. She is really nice so its been cool having a mum for a few days to run around after me. 'Moana is going to Canada (ISAF Youth Worlds) for sure now so she is super excited and happy about that tonight.' Kate

Unfortunately the next day didn't deliver ....

'Our start in the Medal Race was to begin at 12.20 so I was on the water at 11.30 and it took an hour to get to the medal race course just off the beach. 'Due to the lack of win all we could do was 'sail' around in circles. 'After a while we just sat around on the water getting really cold before being towed back to the beach. 'We waited until 4.00pm but there was just nothing. 'The race committee tried to send the boys out at 3.00pm but none of them left the beach. 'I was disappointed not to race as I had every thing to gain. The light winds would have helped a lot getting me back to sixth overall as the two girls just ahead on points aren't as good in the really light pumping stuff.'
