After two weeks in Mexico I leave with a smile on my face after a great training camp at the ISA centre in Puerto Cruz www.internationalsailingacademy.com
I have really enjoyed the camp, we have had a good mix of sailing conditions and a good training group, Nick, Bapsey, Brad Funk, Rob Crane along with a few other US and Canadian sailors. The facility there is pretty special, a great house on the beach only a 5 minute walk from the Marina. The beach in front of the house even had surf on a few occasions. The local gym was good and the catering was amazing thanks to Lea the training centres chef, I’m pretty sure we had something different every meal, not like the standard rolling 4 menus we tend to eat while away!
I leave pretty tired after an action packed 14 days. Each day we tried to achieve a Mexican hatrick….. 3 activities in a day! This generally included gym, sailing, and another activity more on the fun side. This ranged from Surfing, mountain biking to even going to a Bull Fight, I’m not sure what we were thinking with the bull fight, culture???? I didn’t enjoy it and definitely won’t be going to one again.
It’s a long Trip home now and I’m seriously tired and ready for some economy class snoozing, early morning flight to Dallas, then on to Miami and then back to London.
It’s a quick pit stop for my third day of the year in the UK before flying out to Carrera Italy, for a Melges 32 event with Team Red. Its then straight to Palma for some more Laser sailing……
