Instead of going to an office last Monday morning, we took the car and trailer down to Oporto in Portugal (over 3200km). Joining the the other 49er sailors to prepare for the European Championship.
We have settle and done a few days of sailing on the atlantic coast. Big waves, medium air and some speed tuning.
You can’t complain about the venue, this is going to be fun and was definitely worth two days in a car.
Today is the first day of racing, schedule to start at 13pm, 14pm swedish time. There will be three days with 10 qualifying races followed by another 9 races in final fleets over three days and a medal race in the afternoon on Sunday.
From Thursday, Gold fleet will have GPS tracking, until you find more information on http://www.49er.org
