Getting Ready for the Laser World Championships

I arrived in Muscat, Oman late yesterday evening, by the time I got to the hotel it was around three in the morning. After a few hours of sleep I woke up and had breakfast provided by the hotel, which was very good, much better than most hotel breakfasts. Then I went to pick up my boat, like most Laser World Championships the boats are provided by the regatta to make racing as fair as possible. Once I had unpacked and checked my boat for any damage I rigged up and got everything ready to go.  Now that I have my boat sorted the plan is to take it easy for the rest of the day and just recuperate from traveling. From what I have heard and seen today the wind seems to come up fairly early in the morning and builds to around 10-14 knots in the afternoon. If the wind is like this most days we should have some great racing. The first day of racing is on the 17th which means I have a few days to adjust to the time change and the hot climate. Check back for more updates as I get ready for the event.
