Close Encounters of the VX40 Kind.

We were fortunate enough to be able to squeeze in a spot of VX40 sailing yesterday in between sessions of training before Hyeres regatta starts tomorrow.

Shirley Robertson was down in Hyeres training with her iShares crew, and along with her mainsheet man Hugh Styles who was my Tornado helm in the Sydney Games, kindly offered us a quick ride.

Helena and Megan didn't stop grinning all day! They both had a spin on the helm, with Helena mentioning she'd never sailed a multihull before whilst flying a hull downwind at over 20 knots.

They finished their session with a fly-by of the 2.4 fleet.
