Team Fletcher-Sign training in Weymouth Team Fletcher-Sign training in Weymouth

We had far from a normal weeks training last week, in fact the first 2 days we had about 40-50 flim crew for a Skandia Ad. So Skandia have decided to do an advert that involves the 49er squad which was quite cool. On the first day there was a helicopter buzzing around us filming and trying to chop the top off the mast sometimes. Had some great tight racing with 6 49ers zooming around the short course and the heli flying overhead, should make for some awesome footage. The next day was just filming with Ribs and a bit of onshore stuff with a super slow motion (very expensive camera). They have spent a lot of money on it and it should be on TV at some point in the next 6 months. I have attached a couple of photos of our boat set up on shore with all the cameras on it.

The next 2 days were spent just tuning, but to be honest we were so tired after the shoot that we would have been better off not sailing! The final day was a great days training, 9-12 knots from the SW with the sun out in Weymouth bay - what more could we want. It proved to be a very productive days tuning with some real key performance gains made.

Now we just have one more day training in the UK before we head off to Holland next Saturday for Holland Regatta. We are really keen to check how our training has gone since Palma and if we have made any gains in speed.
