What they said:

Michael Beckett (25, Solva, Pembrokeshire), Laser

"So that's a wrap on my qualifying series. We are half way through the regatta and pretty happy with it so far. Today was a hot day with a fresh thermal breeze. My legs are a bit tired and I'm pretty sunburned.

"I'm actually really looking forward to final series starting tomorrow, it's going to be so intense with basically no gaps on the race course. I'm not quite sure what the weather has in store for us, but regardless I'm excited to get into it."
