GBR Optimists in Italy

The GBR Optimist Euros team headed out to Lignano near Venice in Italy at half term for traning.
We stayed at Ge Tur a large sports facility right on the beach. Massimo form Italy organised the boats and RIB which were great. 
Unfortunately there was a strong onshore wind for 2 days so we couldn't get afloat. So we went for a sneaky peak at Venice.

We went on a tour boat down the grand canal and then walked back though winding streets and over bridges to the entrance to Venice.
Meanwhile back at the beach as well as sailing in light sloppy med stuff  we did a bit of deckchair coaching too.
