It has been a great first two days of sailing here in Rio - tough conditions for us all as we watch from the beautiful beach in the sunshine!

Our team socks and shirts must be working with Mat and Will moving up into 2nd position, and Carrie and Jaime in 13th position.

With 3 more days of racing before the medal race I am expecting to feel a lot more nerves and excitement as we soak up the amazing Olympics atmosphere.
