2016 Optimist Worlds Team Wrap Up

The NZ Yachting Trust Optimist Worlds Team are almost all home again now and recovered from their jetlag. Traveling half way around the world to compete at this intensity is a big ask.

Flying straight through was going to be a 30 hour journey, so the team elected to stay a night in Honk Kong on the way, to start the clocks adjusting, and to unwind after the usual rush to leave. Hong Kong to Faro on its own was a long haul, with a 5 hour stop in Frankfurt.
