Two days till I start racing. The World Champs opened last night with an impressive opening ceremony and South Africa had three boats racing in this morning's session and all three have made it through to the semi finals. We have our heat draw for Saturday morning. We are going to be up against some good boats which is always good, it allows you to gauge yourself before the semi 90min later and clear out a few cob webs. The boats to look out for in our heat are Latvia, Canada, Japan and China. This years Worlds has 2000 athletes all attempting to qualify for London next year only 176 will get the nod. There a lot of pressure out here.
