China Training

We have been here nearly a week now and have seen a good mix of conditions from no wind to 25 knots!!! so the training has been varied.
One of the biggest challengers was getting the boats out of the containers as we had no keys for the padlocks! Nick went for the brute force route trying to smash them off before i managed to borrow a hack saw, 20 minutes and a few blisters later and we where in.
Today the visibility was a real issue as we could barely see further than 100m, at one stage we lost the Kiwi coach as he drove off in his rib to be the leward mark. Chris had to telephone him with our gps coordinates, 20 minutes later he appeared through the fog!!!
The high light so far has to be the big Tennis match where Nick and I won in straight sets 6-0 6-1 against the NZL team of Foxy and Murdock, we even went to the trouble of buying matching team kit from the market.
The finn boys arrive tomorrow so it will be good to have some new tennis teams or easy pray????
