National Squad Residential, Pwllheli - Day 1
Staying at Plas Menai (National Outdoor Centre for Wales) approx. 45 mins from Pwllheli Yacht Club. All squad in various bunkrooms; lots of fun! Alarm off at 07.00, breakfast at 08.00, fitness at 09.00, rigged, changed, briefing and on the water by 10.00. Weather around 10 to 25 knots, beautiful sunshine and great location! Challenging shifty conditions up close to the shore. We did one long session focusing on boat speed, downwind speed, gybing and a little bit of starting. Varying conditions throughout the day meant constant rig tuning. Great day on the water, but icy cold.
