So according to the forecasts, our two 29er boats, Freya Black/Millie Aldridge and Ewan Wilson/Fin Armstrong will face intense heat, light winds and warm seas at the Corpus Christi Texas Youth Sailing World Championships from 14 July until 21st July. A far cry from the gale force easterlies and wind chill thrown at them at the RYA Youth Nationals qualifier.

Both boats have been training hard despite exam season with Freya and Millie attending a two day camp in Weymouth led by coach Jonny McGovern. The training schedule continues with both boats travelling to the Kiel Eurocup from 16-19 June and then on to the Gydnia Eurocup in Poland before heading out to Texas on 10th July. Click on the links below for footage shot by Freya and Millie (Instagram: @alblack.sailing) at Hayling Island with coach Phil Walker in 5knts and 15knts, and for footage shot by coach Daniel Harris of Ewan and Fin at Torbay.

But don't be put off by the sea mist from entering the Torquay Grand Prix on 14/15 July - it is guaranteed to be blazing sunshine.....
