After racing in Miami, it was back to Europe for our next training block, this time in Spain. Having done 2 camps in Vilamoura, we moved to Cadiz for this one, and started training as soon as Tuula had finished her latest exam. The advantage was it also meant that we were able to do a regatta, Andalusia Olympic week, where Tuula finished 3rd behind her training partners for the week, Sarah Douglas and Emma Plasschaert.
Jon will once again be doing book signings at the 2019 Dinghy show.
Well I am writing this blog, like so many others, on a plane heading back home from a regatta. This time the regatta was the Miami World Cup, and shortly after landing I will be meeting Tim Hulse who looks after the GBR Youth training for the UKLA (check out his interview on the UKLA Facebook page).
