Amanda Beenen won the Rhoseigr leg of the BWA and then went on to place 4th at the PWA in Pozo, now on ‘home’ turf she’s ready to compete yet again.
“I feel quite calm ahead of the event, I don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing, but I feel pretty relaxed. I’m just more hungry to go sailing in good conditions, than anything else.
“I really hope the conditions are going to be like last year – logo high waves with 3.7, that would be perfect. And the forecast is looking promising; we always get wind here in August, so I just hope it comes through well for the competition.
“It’s really great to have such a bit fleet of girls here this year, it should be an amazing competition. A couple of years ago we only had around 10 girls and now having over 20 is just going to make the event so much better. I’m sad Arrianne isn’t going to make it now, get well soon Arrianne!
“It can be a pretty sketchy spot to sail here if you’re not used to it, but after sailing here so much over the past few years I hope I’ve got it dialled in now. Bring it on!
