Well first of all, Tim has completely lost track of what day of the week it is after his travels, so apologies if there are mistakes there!
Unfortunately there was some cloud this morning, which I hasten to add cleared by 11am. However, a thick haze remained over the land and to the East so no sea breeze.
We were among the few nations who took to the water to sail, however the wind was patchy and under 5kts so there were several breaks to the session. Still learnt some useful lessons about technique and the venue!
On a lighter note, the sailors also demonstrated that taking video is not always as simple as the coaches make it look, and Dan learnt that Tim could still remember how to sail an Oppy, despite being 75+ Kilos, and had to concentrate hard to out pace him!
Hoping for more wind tomorrow with the typical sea breeze, as would like to get more practice in this as it is what we expect most of the racing to take place in!
