Miami Grand Prix

The weather warmed up and the sailing was great with 10 - 20 knots each day. After a good start to the regatta with a 2 - 10 - 4 first day we followed it up with a 4-10 to leave ourselves in 3rd overall. After sailing some of the crew managed to catch the basketball game to see Miami heat beat the Lakers in overtime. It was a pretty impressive game and great fun to watch.
Back to the sailing and going in to the final race we were poised on equal points with second, unfortunately we pulled the trigger a little early and got caught over the line. After returning back we started the big come back and made it back to 7th in the race. Unfortunately the boats around us did really well in the final race leaving us to finish 5th in the regatta.
This did however mean that we had won the overall series for the Gold cup in Lauderdale, Key west and Miami combined. The team did a great job and we seem to be improving each day.

After a night at home I flew out to Palma to be greeted with snow and freezing weather. I went for a ride in the mountains yesterday. Starting at Inca I made my way up to the top about 1 hour 40 of climbing as I gained altitude it got colder and the snow got deeper. It was pretty cold on the way back down. All good fun.
Its snowing this morning so just waiting to see if it warms up so we can get out sailing....
Its not quite MIAMI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
