One weather pattern on the Polish Baltic includes really nice mornings and evenings, and gnarly cold, cloudy afternoons. This has been the pattern for the past few days, and as I write the weather is the nicest it's been all day, not a cloud in the sky.
I am borrowing a Garmin GPS / heart rate monitor, a few of which were given to the US Sailing Center in Miami by the USOC. At the end of the day, I had sailed for 4 hours (1 race / hour shows you how efficient the RC is) burned 3230 calories in that time, had a max heart rate of 170 (where you are during interval training) and top speed 27.5 mph. That's a lot of work! We are looking forward to 40, yes, 40 knots tomorrow with the same schedule. Woo hoo!
