Ellie and I were lucky enough to travel to Barcelona with 4 other Australian sailors for the O’pen Bic World Championships earlier this month. Unfortunately the European heat wave affected the wind and we spent many days becalmed on the beach. Despite this we had a great time with sailors from around the world.
There was no wind for most of the regatta so we spent a lot of our time in the shade of the marquee playing card games. In the two days that we had races, the under 17s got two races total and the under 13s just one race. I came 8th overall out of the 137 sailors in U/17s, and Ellie in U/13 came 17th out of 47.
