After making it to the nationals via some seriously good chat at the bar with Kier. Saturday was lining up to be a superb day.
Timetable for the day:
Laser heats: 12pm – Hopefully win that and book a spot for Sunday’s medal race.
Wakeboarding with Nautique: 2-4pm
Rugby friendly match: 5-7pm
Projitech (work thing) xmas doo: 7pm
Rugby Christmas party: 7-late.
The sailing got off to a great start. With a massive fleet of 7, and bobby wanting to get his name up on the nationals list, 6 sailors and 1 novice headed out to a blustery course and fought for the best starboard approach to the first mark.
Here’s a photo of me doing a port flyer on the 2nd race.
On finishing the third race, cesca hurried bobby and I along to blue haven to get on the boat for some wake boarding.
Eager to improve on my inaugural trip last time out, I brazenly set about trying to jump and 180 and achieved this with limited success.
With rugby kicking off at 6, we all headed back to the dock to unload and drove to meridian field for the much anticipated 15 a side friendly. Managing most of the match uninjured, I hurt my shoulder towards the end and had to watch my side lose 21-22. Sad result, good game.
Sadly due to the shoulder I had to retire from Sunday’s conclusion to the nationals. But a fantastic weekend none the less.
Next weekend: kiting with cesca!
