After the regatta in Palma it is usually a tradition to stay on for a week and enjoy the great rides around the island. 300km and over 6500 metres of climbing up some spectacular mountains over 4 days.  It's now time to head to Hyeres or the World Cup.

Super tough medal race today. Not much went right so I finished 9th in the race. I slipped to 6th overall. Seems to be my number here. 3 years in a row now and my bow number was 6. Plenty to work on before the World Cup in Hyeres. Thanks everyone for the on going support. It is definitely much appreciated.

Tough last day of finals. Very light seabreeze made for some close and extremely tough racing. Could only managed a 20th and a 18th but thanks to a solid week it didn't hurt me to much overall. Still sitting in 5th with points close for the top few spots. Medal race tomorrow and the last chance to get on the podium.

Found a good groove today in the building waves and breeze. After winning the first race I then came from behind to grab 5th in the second. It has moved me up to 2nd with 2 more races tomorrow before the medal race.

Day 3 and we finally had an early day. A great 15-17 knots meant we could get both races done relatively quickly. Was some extremely close and tough racing in gold fleet. Managed a 7th and a 9th to move to 6th overall. Still very close at the top of the fleet. Plenty of racing left to keep moving up.

3 races on day 2. Didn't get off the water till after 7:30. Started the day well with a 5 but struggled in the last two only managing a 16th and a 8th. 8th going in to finals tomorrow with the wind looking extremely light for the rest of the week. A few more long days ahead.

We are officially back in Europe. Spending 8 hours on the water and only getting one race in. The wind was between 0 and 30 knots which made it impossible to set a course. The one race we did do I finished in 2nd. Solid start to the regatta with 3 races planned.
