There are a couple of 'Urban Burger' joints around Brisbane if someone knows what Tess's favorite is I am sure we can arrange to get one smuggled into the PA.

Latest update. Good to hear everything is going in a positive direction.

Injured 29er skipper Tess Lloyd has returned to her hometown of Melbourne to continue her rehabilitation following an accident at the 2012 Australian Youth Championships earlier this month.

Since the January 10 accident Tess had been receiving treatment at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane until her condition improved enough to allow her to travel.

Late last week Tessí doctors and family decided that she was healthy enough return to Melbourne and be close to her family and friends.

Tess is now receiving intensive rehabilitation at the Royal Childrenís Hospital in Melbourne where she has ready access to the necessary experts. Tess has already made great progress and continues to show signs of improvement every day in her speech and memory.

The Lloyd family would like to thank the excellent doctors, nurses and ambulance staff that have played such a big part in Tessí recovery, as well as the wider sailing community for the support they have shown her.


From Sail World

Keep it up Tess!

Sailor Lloyd ends tough year on a high

In a year of heartwarming stories for the Australian sailing team, perhaps one of the best was saved for last.
In January, Tess Lloyd, 17, spent three weeks in an induced coma with swelling around her brain and fluid on her lungs after being knocked unconscious by a windsurfer at the youth sailing championships off Brisbane.
The then 16-year-old was competing in the 29er skiff class when the windsurfer hit her boat, planed over the vessel and hit Lloyd square on the skull, knocking her out and into the water.
The Melbourne-based sailor was taken to Brisbane's Princess Alexandra Hospital in a critical condition - and there were real doubts as to whether she'd survive.
And on Saturday, she won the 29er skiff class with crewmate Eliza Solly, 17, at the Sail Melbourne World Cup regatta in Port Phillip Bay.
"It's been a big year for me," Lloyd told AAP.
"But I think it's been really good for me - I've been working really hard on my sailing.
"I'm more determined and really enjoying everything."
Lloyd, who wears a protective helmet when the wind blows above 15 knots, was cheered on by her mum, dad and uncles.
Lloyd and Solly, who are rated among Australia's best young sailors, turn 18 next year and say they'd like to campaign for the 2016 Rio Games in the 49erFX.
The 29er skiff they sail is the youth version of the 49erFX.

Well done to the little "Blonde Bombshell". Great way to finish a tough year. Go Tess.

I hope she'll not have to join our ranks.

Soon youth sailing will require skateboard or ski helemts at the minimum.

They have had a great season so far winning the earlier Sail Sandy Regatta outright and now Sail Melbourne. Here they are receiving their ISAF Glold Medals from 470 Gold Medallist Matt Belcher. And they were out training again tonight in a brisk 20+ knots on Port Phillip.
I well remember assisting Tess at a Sail Sandy regatta not too many years ago when she dropped the rig out of her Minnow (Blonde Bombshell) We towed her back to shore where she promptly "negotiated" the use of a replacement mast from another competitor. No sooner was she back on the course than that one fell down too and she promptly burst into gales of laughter where most kids would have been devastated. She's come a long way since those days.

Where she is now is pretty bloody impressive but for those of us who know Tess, its really not at all surprising.

 

We have just finished the ISAF Sail Melbourne Regatta here in Melbourne. Tess now sails the new Olympic  class female skiff, the 49er F X.

She just had her crew leave to sail with another skipper about a week pre regatta but didn't let that slow her down. She and her brand new crew were wearing the #1 Yellow leaders vest into the Medal Race, ie she was leading the regatta overall!  A bad capsize in 25 knots saw her boat down for the count in the Medal Race and she finished 4th overall, still a highly creditable result considering what she has been through.

 

Watch this space; the Blond Bombshell has unfinished business...

its a highly credible result no matter who she is! flipping a 49er in 25kts is nothing be ashamed of... Watch the medal race from Quingdao - shit happens... To be leading into the medal race is awesome - especially for a team relatively new to the 49er (FX or otherwise) from the 29er

Youth instructor here. Every night I have nightmares about something like this happening to one of my students. She has the hearts of US sailors across the pacific.

She looked pretty good when I saw her in October last year sailing a 29er, even better when I hardly recognised her last week.
