Tokyo Olympic Laser trialist Finn Lynch goes into the second round of the Sailing World Cup nursing a neck injury sustained in training earlier this month but the National Yacht Club ace says he is ready to race on Biscayne Bay today
The week after Christmas myself and the Irish Sailing team went to Cadiz, Spain for a fitness camp.
I cycled just under 500km in the week after and spent quite a bit of time in the gym and the pool.
Unfortunately, on the 4th of January, I strained my neck in the gym and have been managing the injury since. I'm over the hump now but still have some pain.
As Afloat.ie reported yesterday, I've been in Miami for a week now - managing my workload nicely and feel ready for the racing today. There are three races today and two days of qualifying. I started this World Cup Series with a 17th in Japan in September. I was racing very well but not starting as well as I can! I'm looking forward to getting underway on Biscayne Bay!
I'm here with coach Vasilij Žbogar and Liam Glynn is sailing the Laser too.
