So far 2015 has been a good year! Winning Princess Sophia regatta in April and sealing selection for Rio 2016 was an amazing feeling, especially as I was the first British Athlete to be selected for either the Paralympics or Olympics. The press release on the Cutty Sark after Hyeres World Cup was brilliant made even more special as it was my Birthday.
Since selection our focus has been on development with the aim of having all projects completed by November and it looks like we are on track!
The other focus has been time in Rio and getting familiar with the venue. We had a good training camp in September and are planning another in January.
So now my focus is firmly on the 2015 Para World Sailing Championships in Melbourne, starting on the 28th November. A great opportunity to test some of the new kit, but not all! We have to keep some of our powder dry!
Then its 2016, Olympic and Paralympic year and a busy programme. Staring off in January with another trip to Rio followed by the Miami World Cup, (good excuse to escape the weather back here). Then a full programme from March onwards with training in Palma followed by Princess Sophia, Hyeres World Cup, Garda, The World Championships in Medemblik, Weymouth World Cup, Kiel week and another trip to Rio in July! August will be spent watching the Olympics and supporting team GB and training in the Solent before heading out to Rio on the 28th August for the real thing! The Paralympic Games!
