X40-Training-Camp-Oman

1 AV 2

Artemis Racing has been training here in Oman for the last week. This is our third Extreme 40 training camp and precedes the first event of the Extreme Sailing Series, which starts this Sunday, 20 February.


 

The format of our programme includes intense morning sessions, followed by fleet racing in the afternoon with the other teams.

 

Over the weekend we ran through some America’s Cup scenarios and checked our race sails. The America’s Cup scenarios consisted of one lap races with four minutes to a lay-line beats. As much as anything, it was just to try to get a feel for what we are getting ourselves into. Later in the day we joined the fleet for more fleet racing. We had a practice regatta with the 12-14 teams and that was good fun.

 

The good thing about the fleet racing is that it is very much a college racing style format, which I really enjoy. There is lots of emphasis on getting away clean from the start and good boat handling.

 

Communications here in Oman are shockingly bad but I have managed to keep the telephone cord in the computer for the time being. Fingers crossed it keeps working. More to follow.
