The very first Sydney Sailboat Expo has been and gone. Check out the news story on the very first Expo! I still can not believe how fast this time has gone. It is several weeks since the Expo and I am now looking toward next year! The highlight for me was the support from friends and the industry for the event. To have a surprise visit from Iain Percy to help spread the word of the Andrew Simpson Sailing Foundation in Australia was fantastic. I am looking forward to the impact the Foundation will have not only on world wide sailing but Australian Sailing and am proud to be involved in this.
Now that the Expo has happened life has semi returned to normal! Well I am on catch up and recovery mode. I managed to spend three days umpiring at the NSW Secondary Schools Teams Racing Championships this past week. Always great to get out there and see the up and coming generation of sailors! I love the tactics and rules in Teams Racing and Match Racing. The thinking game of our sport is something I really enjoy.
Now don’t be too shocked. I am actually thinking of taking a couple of days off to really recover from the hectic few months that have passed. I am extremely lucky to have some amazing supporters behind the scenes. Now it is time to recharge the batteries a little and stop to think about what has been achieved and is still yet to be achieved.
