Rosco on preparations for racing in Sardinia

The team had its final training session on the waters off La Maddalena today, ahead of the first day of racing on Saturday. 

There were perfect conditions for sailing today, with winds in the 15-18 knot range this afternoon. Bright sunshine and warmth also made a welcome return.

Ross Halcrow, trimmer, tells about the training and the mixed feelings about the return to monohull racing - the close racing is great, but it's a little bit less exciting than sailing USA in the America's Cup.

The opening ceremony for the Louis Vuitton Trophy is late tomorrow afternoon, as is the opening press conference for the event.
