Practice Swimming

It has been very hot here, but the sailors are coping well.

Today was the practice race and we went out at about 1300, I had to ride 3 miles to the marina to get the RIB and then drive round  to the race area, we can't  go to the beach in the RIBs because of Italian coastguard rules.
We had very little wind all day but sat out in the sun for 3 hours. Most teams eventually got into the water to cool down .
Last night was the opening ceremony and  46 countries walked on a parade with a brass band leading the way.
  

Today racing starts  so more news later fingers crossed for the wind.
