Brits Abroad

So the British contingent are packing up their trusty steeds and winging their way out to Dubai shortly for the 2010 World championships. Feeling slightly envious I can only offer them all the best of luck and hope that one of them comes back with the silverware! For the more technologically inclined the Moth Worlds Twitter feed is here.

It’s pretty tough to call a form guide as being in the middle of the nastiest winter I can remember only the Hayling fleet has been sailing hard. Ricky Tagg is reportedly going well and it would take a fool to bet against Si Payne despite his time off the water. Alex Adams has been practising hard and has given up his day job to go sailing more so it will be interesting to see whether he is back to his form from Garda where he was robbed of a top result by illness.
So, in alphabetical order, best of luck to:

How to prepare for the UK National Championships

Having talked a bit about how not to prepare for a big event last year, I thought we could try and correct that for this years Nationals. Personally, I’ve taken a very different approach for the current season. Instead of sailing as much as I possibly can to try and keep up with the jobless...
