Jason Waterhouse reports from European campaign



We arrived in Europe to receive our new Nacra 17 and head down to south France to compete in our first ISAF World Cup in Hyere.
After a few sessions of sailing to become familiar with the boat most of our pre-regatta preparation was spent on boat work. The boat itself was fantastic to sail and the curved centreboard made for a challenge in learning how to both control and benefit from them.
