Gran Canaria Sail in Winter

Like many sailors, I chose Las Palmas as my 15-16′ winter base camp. Logical destination since we will be having our European Championship here end of February and that it’s probably the only place still in Europe where we can wear shorts and t-shirts the whole year long…

I had never been here before my first training camp in December and I basically love the place. The sailing conditions are amazing and we can do a lot of other things on the Island like cycling, surfing, and so on… Another big + is the sailing club. From the pool to the gym, or even paddle-tennis, you can do a lot of different things just by being at the club.

I have spent way more time here in Spain these last 3 months than I have spent at home, so I have made progress on a lot of different levels. I even won one of the few regattas organised by the sailing club during the winter, which proves that all my training is paying off. The last chance to win a spot at the Games will take place end of March. I want to put all the chances on my side by sailing as much as possible. Next event now is the European Championship from the 28th Feb- 4th March. I promise to  keep you updated!
