We've also had to farewell our much beloved Irish coach, mentor and friend, Dave White who has taught us so much over his past 3 years here in Aus but we wished him the best and sailed a final regatta with him on the Queens birthday for the 'National Australian Pairs Team Racing Championships' at Albert Park. We had a great day, although our team racing was a little rusty...!!
This weekend, after a bit more tempering with the rig settings, we were back at SSCBC for our first VST camp. Training with some fantastic coaches we learnt heaps and thought the weekend was absolutley fantastic. We heard from Warrick Pearson (AST physio) and Paralympic medalist Curtis Palmer as well as having great on and off water sessions with Johnny Rogers (VIS head coach), Aidrian Finglas (Olympic gold medalist coach) and Tony Bull (World champion coach). We were very happy with our progress and boat speed and are fired up for the next few weeks of training to give it our best in QLD for youth week.
