Ali Young (32, Bewdley, Worcs), Laser Radial:

“Not my best start to a regatta. It was tricky conditions but poor starting meant I didn’t make my own luck. Some elements of the race were ok. It’s useful that we can identify the starting as an error but it’s doubtful that we can solve that in the next 24 hours.”
