Well the wind here in Pozo has been.. well... pretty Shite! really! So all the action in Part 3 of the Training diaries is from a spot just north of the airport which works when the wind is more North. It's a super fun place to sail and is different to Pozo... but don't worry action from Pozo will be coming soon as the wind machines have turned back on and it's started to crank again. Lucky really.. as we were starting to go a bit mad!!! Although i've just had to leave the island to go commentate at the PWA Slalom in Turkmenistan!!!! don't ask me.. i'd never heard of the place!...
