What a weekend! The light winds of Saturday allowed for a full fitness test thanks to Mark Steen from Bustinskin Triathlon Club (www.bustinskin.com), followed by some strength and conditioning exercises, squash and basketball. Now we all know our true starting point!
In the afternoon the team got on some SUPs and went on a path of exploration down the Fleet, only to battle against wind and tide on the way back. Well, it was a fitness camp after all… Meeting up in the evening at the Stable (http://thestabledorset.co.uk) for some food, the pizzas had no chance!
Day Two saw the SE wind steadily build for a solid day of gybing and starts practice, followed by constant stream of races … once Tris’ fingertips were warm enough to start the timer on his touch screen! A great weekend full of activity has given way to lots of satisfying aches and pains! Thanks to all who attended – see you for the second pre-season camp in a month’s time!
