Well I think I can quite honestly describe myself as exhausted. Happily exhausted, but far out! What an amazingly intense week here at Audi Hamilton Island Race Week.
I broadcast daily from the event, I was on the water every day, with two days of sailing, AND I even managed to MC the Henri Lloyd fashion parade in my “spare” time!
I don’t think I am going to write too much, because the radio shows will really help you to re-live what was an incredible event, so at least have a listen to the highlights package! It is worth it 🙂
For now though I will have to stick to typing, because my voice is pretty much done!
If you want more, you can be a part of the social media action – I would love to hear from you!
