I've had a few more days of training up here at the St. Margaret's Bay Sailing Center, and so far the bay has continued to provide great breeze. We've had a solid 12-15 knots and big chop for most of the sailing. The sailing has been very productive too. What I really appreciate is that we all sit down in the morning and discuss our goals for the day. We've had one day of long upwind speed work, a day of short "medal race" type races, a day with lots of reaching practice, a day of starts, and tomorrow we're planning to tow upwind for a few hours and do a long downwind. We've really focused on different aspects of sailing and when we're done with this camp, hopefully we'll improve overall in everything.
Tomorrow is my last day of sailing here, and then Thursday I'm going to drive back to NJ. I'm going to umpire the Barclay Cup Team Race for Optimists at Little Egg Harbor Yacht Club on Friday, and then I'm going to turn around and head up to Wianno Yacht Club on the Cape for the V15 Midsummas Team Race. I'm really looking forward to sailing a different type of boat (and also a different type of sailing: team racing vs. fleet racing). It should be a good change of pace.
