2012年亞洲滑浪風帆錦標賽的緊張戰鬥仍然歷歷在目,2013年的亞錦賽原來又完結了。這次比賽場地搬到赤柱,是香港隊的訓練基地。然而熟悉的地方一到了比賽時總會變得陌生,不管平日如何瞭如指掌,比賽還是看誰臨場發揮得好--誰張開了眼、誰動腦筋、誰反應快。特別是赤柱內灣,這裡有高低不一的山波陸地包圍三面,風向稍為移動已大大改變最佳航線。況且陣風一下吹一下散,一不留神便錯過了機會。

要說在赤柱比賽,最令我佩服的是師姐陳慧琪在2009年東亞運的十連勝表現。因為儘管運動員有多少經驗有幾多實力,也不容忽視比賽壓力的影響。這在很多大型運動會中也頻頻發生,一些高水平選手因為過度緊張而失手。我認為滑浪風帆可幸的是我們一般有十至十二場比賽(於四至五天內舉行),所以即使頭一天未入狀態,只要能夠調整還是可以挽救的。2010年亞運會看見師兄陳敬然初段有點心神恍惚更試過比賽中整個人掉水中,到最後一天三場第一總排名勝出,可見只要不氣餒不放棄,還是可以追回失地!當中的非凡鬥志和功力多麼令人欽佩!

回想自己去年亞錦賽一直領先到最後一天失守,看見自己的稚拙,今年的比賽也有很多錯失。不過這些錯誤是最好的提醒最佳的動力,讓每一天都要過得有進步有意義,而且不可以重犯!有一句話是這樣說的:初犯是意外,重犯是有意的錯誤,之後再犯的都已成為習慣了(The first time you make a mistake its an accident, the second time you make the same mistake its on purpose, and the third time you make that same mistake its no longer a mistake, its a habit.)

很開心今年贏得自己升上成人組別的第一個錦標賽。比賽前得知教練凱旋決定離開港隊的消息,她是由我初初在赤柱訓練到現在一直陪伴左右的教練。其實不止她看着我成長,我都見證她的成長--建立事業家庭,到現在心中仍然有團火去闖新天地。這個獎牌是我送給她的送別禮物吧,我們都要加倍努力為目標奮鬥!

Great competition this year! In the RS:X Asian Championship Women’s Fleet my younger teammate Sonia delivered an impressive 2nd (she’s been training mostly on the Mistral and RS:One this year!), Komine Megumi from Japan finished 3rd (she had a great race in which she was miles ahead, completely embarrassing the rest of us!).

In the HK Open RS:X Women’s fleet, Charlie, Sonia and I are pushing each other a lot no matter in training or racing! Always great to see our friendly International Judge Mr Ilker Bayindir from Turkey. Lastly, thanks to WAHK, LCSD, all race officials and volunteers, coaches and competitors for their effort to make this a successful event. We were even lucky with the wind!
