After not sailing for 4 years I attended a short refresher course on my recent holiday. After a couple of days on the water in light winds, we had a strong storm and in fairly testing conditions I attended the intro-to-racing course. Although I capsized 3 times in my “lazer pico” I was ready for the regatta. So the next day 20 boats were rigged up and I was ready to complete my first Olympic challenge. But just as the briefing was about to start, thunder was heard and despite pleading from many of my fellow competitors the race was postponed and later cancelled.
Maybe next year!
