Finally in Florida *Updated*

Published by at 8:43 am under Racing,World's

Well after the plane breaking down and getting delayed for 27 hours only to have a Virgin flight block the runway up for another few hours I’m finally here.

The boats got stuck in customs for a day and instead of a flatbed car lorry to onload all we got was a covered truck with a tailgate lift.

with some inginuity, brute strenght and plenty of ignorance all boats are on the deck and in one piece, all rigged up just having a bite to eat and then off for some training and hopefully be ready for the US Nationals starting tomorrow.

Awful weather here, 28 degrees and blowing 18-20knots from the West every afternoon.

    well it’s all over, winds were a bit light for me, but managed to hang onto 13th and finish top Brit in the end.
