There is a bit more info on the club site now.

I can't race this year as I have had a shoulder op so will be on the committee boat trying to pick up a few tips from watching the leaders in the hope my shoulder recovers in time for the worlds.

If you have any questions which aren't answered on the site feel free to post back or drop me a message.
