Two days on the beach in howling wind, rain and a little sunshine were not the perfect hot sunny calm conditions we expected .
The St Clair team performed extremely well and made five finals – including a team event which was a first for the girls – a quick lesson on crewing for Hannah, some slick pickups plus great driving from Steph and Carla ensured the girls came in 4 th and just narrowly missed out on bronze.
The Australians pipped our girls for Gold and they came away with two silvers for mass and tube . Carla and Steph Laughton deserve these so much and Hannah is more than happy to have hers for patienting.
We leave la Grande Motte as the Junior NZ team has just started and already have a haul of Golds and Silvers – thanks to our St Clair clubby Andrew Trembath.
For the next 7 days the beach will be busy with world teams and club competitions.
We are off for a new adventure – Spain here we come – Barcelona and Jerez .. So looking forward to this with my 3 young travelers.
