John Gimson and Hannah Diamond teamed up at the end of 2014 following two years of campaigning in the Nacra 17 Class in different partnerships.
They are aiming to be selected for the Rio 2016 Olympics and hope to bring home a medal! Comments Hannah: "We knew when we teamed up that we only had a short amount of time to become good enough together to be considered for selection so we have worked really hard over this winter to make sure we have covered all of the bases in order to be ready for the racing season."

Close & Exciting Racing Enjoyed Across The Classes In The Harken May Regatta
Close & Exciting Racing Enjoyed Across The Classes In The Harken May Regatta
Report: Phil Riley - Images: Jay Haysey - globalshots.co.uk
The Harken May Regatta began on the Saturday (May 9th) with grey skies and 30-knot gusts from the western Solent, and race officers took the prudent decision to postpone racing in the hope conditions would moderate.
In the event, while the solid breeze never eased off enough for racing in White Group, the larger yachts in Black were rewarded for their patience with a single race and even some afternoon sunshine.  By contrast, Sunday saw near ideal conditions which allowed an expanded programme of four races in White Group and the planned two in Black.
