Giles de Jager, AYC Junior Sailor, reporting from Schoelcher International Sailing Week – Martinique
My time spent in the 29th annual Martinique Schoelcher regatta was amazing. The people there were kind, welcoming and the wind conditions were not disappointing in the slightest. We were experiencing an average 25 knots of wind during the entire Regatta.
The waves were the ideal height to just roll the boat over them and continue with the same speed. My opponents were all very experienced and it was no easy task coming 4th out of 35. I am very proud to represent AXXESS Marine.
