We are back in Victoria after 3 weeks of intense racing. It all started with Piediluco, followed by a weekend of racing each other (Canadian crews) in Corgeno before World Cup 1 in Varese. Only 7 boats entered this world cup, however it was the perfect field to assess our current situation. We raced the Lithuanians in Piediluco (6th last year at world Championships) and we had the opportunity to race in Varese the Estonians and the Polish 3rd and 7th in 2015. But the most interesting part was to be able to race some non qualified crews to see where we are at. Russia, Norway and Italy were part of the 7 boats. A good test, 5 weeks before the qualification regatta.

Here is a quick report of a busy Italian weekend. We arrived in Rome on Tuesday after what looked like a world discovery tour (Victoria => Vancouver => Calgary => Frankfurt => Rome => Terni). The main goal was to get used as quick as possible to the time change (+9h). It is a new experience for me as I was used to race most of the main regattas in Europe. I have always wondered how our Australia and New Zealand fellows manage to deal with the jetlag in such a short period of time before a regatta. The answer is pretty simple:
