Last week I competed in the RS Aero World Championships as part of the RS games down in Weymouth. The Championships consisted of 5 days of racing which was very tiring due to the heavy winds and big waves.
Overall I am very pleased with my performance in the Aero as I finished in 22nd position out of 61 boats which was way above my target going into the event.
The weather, particularly on the last 3 days brought severe winds of above 30 knots which was a physical and mental challenging. The waves were big which meant it was excellent downwind sailing.
This was my first time in the RS Aero 5 so I am incredibly pleased with my result and my performance in the tricky, windy conditions.
I would like to take this time to thank my Sponsors Sailing Chandlery for all the support they have given me throughout the year with fantastic ropes and blocks etc and also to Gill for the fantastic clothing which kept me warm throughout the event.
