Happy Holidays!

I have to say that I have been quite lucky with my winter sailing conditions here at home, as Vancouver's been somewhat mild apart from the odd really cold day (-1), making my training on the water quite manageable. It couldn't have been done without my coaches who have become experts in a variety of hand-warming techniques! (Sailing with gloves just doesn't work). My workout schedule is intense, I have been putting some good time in at the gym as well as hitting the mountains for some cross-country skiing. It's been busy and painful for my body at times but fun too! I'm loving been home too - it brings some balance into my life again, something that's not easy when I'm on the road 7-8 months of the year.

To each one of you that supports me, I thank you, the inspiration goes both ways.

I wish you a Merry Christmas and all the very best for 2011.


Attached are some pictures of my training - both on the mountain (full moon skiing) and on the water (with rainbows). I am so fortunate to call this home and to be able to enjoy Vancouver's beauty most days!!!
