Achieving Goals at Fenn Cape Point Challenge 2013

Written by Barry Lewin on . Posted in Coaching

Setting goals are alway important and the key to achieving those goals is putting positive structures in please to get your want to go. Goals can be anything from doing your first downwind to getting through a long tough race like the Fenn Cape Point Challenge.

Lee Millers Run

I have a couple people who took up the massive task of preparing for the latter, one of the hardest races in the world where the traditional downwind is thrown out the window and no matter what the weather at least half the race is into the wind.

Lee Cape Point

A big well done to the crew I coach for taking up and doing this massive race but for loving all the hard work in the middle. Congrats!
