Allison training at Olympic venue, UK

I arrived in Europe in April this year to commence my campaign for the London Olympics in 2012. The first regatta in Hyeres, France was an opportunity to get used to my new equipment and blow off the cobwebs.  It was my first major Olympic international regatta in three years.  I had some great races in the top three, but found that I had some work to do before the next events to get to the level I needed to qualify. 

My training camp at Lake Garda, Italy was great, I was able to test and push myself against the Italians, Kiwis and other top racers in all different strengths of wind.  After two weeks of hard training I ended up having to have more time off the water than on, due to a back injury sustained while exercising on a swiss ball. After having to visit the local hospital for x-rays, I was forced to do nothing for the final two weeks of preparation before Holland Regatta to give myself the best chance to qualify. 

My next events in The Netherlands and Kiel were trials for Olympic selection that were tentatively contested to give my back opportunity to recover properly.  Despite racing in extreme pain with stick-on hot packs down my wetsuit, I achieved 3rd and 8th respectively.   


Training in Weymouth

The last two months spent in Weymouth, UK at the Olympic site has proven valuable training with the best women in the world.  I've been able to test my equipment, and the good news is, I've found my speed again!  While there has still been a lingering back pain, it has been improving every week with regular physio and exercises, with time on my side I can only look forward to more good results coming up. 

Bulgaria now beckons, so in a few days time I'll be down to serious training again for the European Championships in Bourgas, my next selection trial event.

Then homeward bound back to Australia for the final two possible opportunities to qualify for Olympic selection.  Those events are Sail Melbourne in November and the ISAF World Championships in Perth in December. 

So thank you to those who have continued to support me, in so many ways.  I would welcome any financial support to assist with my Olympic campaign, and invite you to contact me at for details.
