Antigua Week Begins

Race one at Antigua week provided our team aboard Hydrocarbon with 12 knots of wind and intense heat.  Dehydration was the hardest battle today and I actually drank nearly five litres of water!  The team worked incredibly hard and really pushed hard.  After a few issues on the first beat and a tactical bluder Hydrocarbon was waloowing at the back of the fleet at the half way stage.

As you all know, this is not somewhere I like to be!  We picked ourselves up and gradually took a few of our rivals out to finish in a credible 7th place.  Many lesson were learnt and the team was quite ecstatic at the end of the day.

Today there are two races and the forecast is for slightly more wind.  We are all determined to show big improvements and aim to be back on hte podium by the end of the day, where we belong!
