Earlier this month, we had a photo session with Cajsa Svensdotter. She is a great photographer and have provided us with tons of pictures. Some of them have been uploaded at the gallery page, and some can be found at our Facebook page.
Our dear DS37’s is currently being prepared for Stena Match Cup Sweden, where both Kim and John will be volunteers. The boats will then be prepared for Women’s Cup in Lysekil, so there is long before we can practice with DS37 in GKSS again. In the mean time, we’ll practice with C55 in Stenungsund for the Swedish Youth Nationals.
Today we had a training session in Långedrag with a coach and three other teams to compete against. It was very rainy at first, but the sun managed to break through and it ended up being a really nice evening.

Our sailing on the other hand was not that good. We’ve had some struggles getting our spinnaker sailing to function well and today it was more windy than our other training sessions with spinnaker. So things got faster than usual and started to mess up. All of the guys did a good job though, and the only solution to our struggle is more practice. The next session is tomorrow. We wish for stronger winds so we can learn as much as possible.
There was a new Match Race ranking today, and we moved up 134 places to 490th. This was only due to our participation in IceBreaker Qualification, so that was a surprise. Hopefully we can climb way longer when we start to compete more.
