A beautiful day in Wellington today after travelling from Sydney yesterday. The team including Cameron Whiteside Alistair Read, Jemma Hodgson and Jasmine Bridge have all been warmly welcomed here in Wellington.
Today we have a practice session in the Elliot 6’s but before that we took in the sights of Wellington and we checked out the amazing Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa which has a number of themes including the geographic and natural transformation of this country, Maori Culture, World War 1 -Gallopoli, NZ Art and a lot more.
We are staying with Belinda and Glenn Stanley, in a rather unique architecturally designed residence at Karaka Bays, about 15minute drive from the Royal Port Nicholson Yacht Club in central Wellington. It is always a great expereince to be billeted with Club members ad always greatly appreciated.
The racing starts tomorrow with 5 teams competing. 4 Round robins then Semis and Finals on the final day on Sunday. Team spirit is high and all looking forward to the upcoming racing.
