I think most of the UK windsurfers would agree with me that this has been the WORST autumn ever for wind! I have had to resort to lots of training in the gym to get my windsurf fitness ready and raring to go when the wind decides to blow! I have been going to be local gym, Riptide in Brighton most week day nights after work and I have to say that the results are great. I was really feeling prepared for the last event of the season at West Wittering (4 Nations Cup Final) when tragedy struck and I slipped the night before resulting in several stitches to my head. It is a cruel world and I am sorry not to say that I ripped and came out triumphant! A salutory lesson in fate and for now I am planning a training trip abroad and concentrating on my fitness for the Big Bay Classic in Cape Town, South Africa in January.
