Finals Day ISAF World Cup Hyeres We had a nice start, sailed well and did everything we could to give ourselves the best chance. We were 3rd over the line but was not enough to claw back the points to get on the podium. The road to the Olympics is getting shorter! and Hyeres has given us some great lessons to take away with us. We are off to Rio now for training for a few weeks then on to Weymouth England 8-14th June for final World Cup competition before the Games. Congratulations today to the Spanish 1st, Italians 2nd and Dutch 3rd All results here http://www.sailing.org/worldcup/results/index.php… Australian Olympic Team Sailing World Cup Australian Sailing Team #Nacra17 #SWCHyeres
World Cup Hyeres Day 4 - Tricky and fickle. Scoring 16, (22) 2, we are now 5th going into tomorrows medal race. We had good starts but were not playing the right game today which was hitting a corner. There was a big shuffle on the leaderboard resulting in a 3 way shootout at the top, which gives us an opportunity if we send it hard tomorrow with bigger breezes forecast. You can watch the medal race live streaming https://youtu.be/8HNURakIT7o Nacras at 1.10pm All results here http://www.sailing.org/worldcup/results/index.php… Photo Thanks Laurens Morel - Salty Colours Australian Olympic Team Sailing World Cup Australian Sailing Team #Nacra17 #SWCHyeres

World Cup Hyeres Day 2 - Looking around for the shifts Todays results were 13,15, 6 & 2 and we are currently seventh place overall. It was really shifty out there with huge oscillations with wind strengths from four to ten knots. The breeze kicked in at the end and it was a lot better racing, but before that it was like ‘snakes and ladders’. We struggled a bit to get off the start line in the first races but in the last two races we got back in the groove, so it was nice to finish with a good result. The forecast is similar tomorrow, so we can take a lot out of today and put it into tomorrow to get some good results.

World Cup Hyeres Day 1 - That was FUN After a shaky upwind we went hard on the downwinds and caught up to fifth. Keeping the bows of the water downwind was a big challenge. With an average windspeed of 27knots there was a bit going on and we managed a cartwheel through a gybe, but recovered to 9th. The fleet was decimated with only 14 out of 33 finishing Race 1. We were sent back to shore for the rest of the day. You can see how hairy conditions are on this video link just as we are approaching the bottom mark. https://www.facebook.com/ISAFWorldSailing/videos/10154294208995757/ All Results here http://www.sailing.org/worldcup/results/index.php?view=schedule&rgtaid=18711®attaid=18711#results__18711 Australian Olympic Team World Sailing #Nacra17 #SWCHyeres #100daystogo
