Hello from Portugal – Day 6

Another beautiful day in Portugal the athletes were going to have a short practice in the morning so we would have a little extra time for sight seeing but the conditions were so nice it was more than 2 and a half hours before they got off the water and then the guys wanted to get a run in so we ended up going sightseeing after lunch. It was a bit tight fitting 5 athletes into a Yaris and a little slow getting up some of the mountain roads but we made it to the beach at Fiaguiera da Foz to check out the surf and arrange a little surfing for the non-paddlers tomorrow. After the beach we all headed to Coimbra for a little exploring and a Pizza dinner.
