Are you going?

I’m not too sure yet… I’ve got one of my final year uni exams the Monday of Ireland and a few more the week after which makes it pretty difficult for me to go. I’d be pretty pissed if I messed them up. Although I’d also be pretty pissed if I missed a good forecast for the comp.. I’m still trying to figure out if it’s possible (or allowed) for me to get to Ireland after my exam on Monday!

What fleet are you competing in?

I was looking forward to having a crack at the pro fleet.

What equipment are you taking?

All my Vandal sails and Fanatic quad with K4s.

What conditions are you hoping for?

I’d love some port tack cross off with pretty decent size waves as that’s what I’ve been sailing in all winter.

How have you been preparing/training for the events?

Been sailing in the UK all winter.. it’s been a little bit good!!

What are your strengths and weaknesses?

I’m a bit rubbish at sailing very onshore… only slightly better when it’s not very onshore.

Who’s your biggest rival?

Everyone in the pro fleet is bloody good… I’d be lucky to beat any of them! I guess I’d like to beat Lecky, think I need a lot more practice before that’s gonna happen though!

What position finish are you aiming for?

I would be delighted if I made it through a heat.. so I guess I’d be aiming for second last!
