Hannah Mills “Las Palmas de Gran Canaria meets all the conditions to train during winter”.

The British 470 class sailor, silver medal in London 2012 Olympic Games, is one of the attractions of the XV Canary Olympic Sailing Week – El Corte Inglés Trophy, organized by the Real Club Náutico de Gran Canaria. She also got the gold medal together with her team mate Saskia Clark in Barcelona World Championship last year, and now she is making the most of her stay in Gran Canaria to keep on training for the next season.

Hannah perfectly knows the field of regattas in Gran Canaria, where she was world champion in Optimist in 2003 and got the same world title in 420 in 2006.

-What do you expect from your participation in the Canary Olympic Week?

-Our intention is to sail the best we can in incredible conditions. Saskia and I feel like enjoying in Gran Canaria again, where we have always obtained good results and, more importantly, we have trained and compete with guarantees.

-What do you focus on when you are in the water?

-Undoubtedly, the most important is to read the situation when sailing.

-Do you consider Gran Canaria a good place to train during winter?

-Absolutely, I’m convinced. It’s an incredible and fantastic place which meets the best conditions to train and sail during this season, when our countries are frozen (laughter). We feel very well here.

-Saskia Clark and you got the Olympic silver at home, in London, representing the British team. What will be your next challenge?

-We have to continue training to obtein a gold medal one day.
