From Palma to Hyeres World Cup

Nastasha Bryant & Annie Wilmot share their current 49er FX Regatta insights with us as they hunt down that Olypmic dream of Tokyo 2020.

We arrived in Palma on the 21st of March, that day we set the boat up ready for training. We sailed for the next 6 days, experiencing as many conditions as we could. Unfortunately I caught a virus and was bed ridden for the next 5 days leading into the competition, its not the ideal lead in but we made the most of the situation. 

 

The first two days were light and tricky, we learned some tough lessons during the qualifying but managed to secure enough top ten scores and make gold fleet. The first day of finals racing was 22-25 knots and with big waves, we are really happy with our speed so as soon as we can keep the boat upright throughout the whole race in conditions like these we’ll be in great shape. The last two days were picture perfect and we are really proud of our efforts in scoring multiple top ten results! We finished off the regatta with two 3rd places on the last day, proving that all the work we’ve done back at home after Miami has payed off. We have improved on many aspects of our racing always learning, we notice that as we learn we make some new mistakes later on in the race but we’re really happy with our progress and can’t wait to keep working away on these new learnings. 

 

We’ve now got another week in Palma which we will spend training and some exploring, it's important to enjoy the journey and the places we race in. Yesterday we went on a hike around one of the beautiful mountains, it really is a beautiful place. On the 16th of April we pack up and are heading off to Hyeres for our 2nd World Cup this year - looking forward to some more racing and building on our experience! 

To all of our supporters at the RPAYC we would like to say a huge thank you for being there and sharing our journey with us. It makes so much of a difference to know you are behind us and as excited about our sailing as we are. Thank you for your support and we hope to make you proud! Onwards and upwards - enjoy your week! Tash + Annie.
