It was a fantastic feeling for me to retain my connection with the Melges 24 class, even though it's been some time since our World Championship win on "Embarr".
Last weekend I travelled to Bergen in Norway to work with the Norwegian fleet at their annual "Speedcamp".
The camp was organised by Jens Aptern Wathne who is also the president of the International Class Association. Winds were light for the weekend and we had some excellent session both ashore and afloat. Afloat we focused on body weight driven kinetics, light air boat and sail trim and optimal techniques for acceleration and deceleration pre-starts.
Ashore, we had some lively classroom sessions on starting tactics, ISAF Rules Of Sailing and rig tune.
I'd like to thank all the volunteers who made the weekend a great success. I can't wait to get back into one of my favourite raceboats - the Melges 24!
