After training in Mallorca in February it was time to test these skills back in Palma bay for the Europeans in April. We had a couple of training days with good winds and huge waves, the biggest ive ever sailed in, before the competition began. Racing started on Tuesday after registration and a practice race. The majority of the races were planing, ( dagger board up) or powered up when railing, (sailing with the dagger board down) this was good conditions to develop in however not my preffered for a major international regatta. It was a fun week overall and i celebrated my 18th birthday on the final day of racing which topped of a faboulous week.
