Yesterday we went again to Eki Tropical Island for our windsurfing race. Sanja, Lucy, Nicole and Walthard joined me in the race, Sunday, Mera and Style watched the race and Sunday did the pictures you will see in the report.
In the first race Sanja and Walthard started from south (portack start) and the rest from north (starboardtack start). All aimed for the southern half of the startline. Sanja was lucky and passed all with a perfect start, Walthard was a bit slower and blocked me totally, which stopped me to 0 knots and let me go swimming. That was the end of my perfect start to follow Sanja… The others passed after me safely.
I am really a relaxed person who doesnt protests easily, but in this case i had to give Walthard a penalty 360° and not only because he stopped me. They knew the risk of a portack start and well some win like Sanja and some loose like Walthard and me…. (smiles).
The rest of the race was just a story of Walthart chasing me and me chasing Sanja, Lucy and Nicole followed a little behind.
After the last buoy i went a more direct line to the finish and could pass Sanja with that.
It was an exciting warm up for the longer second 2 Lap race.
Some pics from first race:
The second race saw the same start philosophy as in first race. But this time Sanja AND Walthard passed us others first on their way North while the rest went west first
Walthard and Sanja after their start leading the race (Background next pic) and Lucy, Nicole and me chasing them (front of next pic)
At buoy one the fleet came together. Walthard leading the fleet followed by me, Sanja, Lucy and Nicole. This positions stayed nearly until the end of the two laps. Only Walhard crashed on a simcrossing
and Lucy passed buoy 4 on the wring side, went back to pass it Right. That was the moment she was passed by Nicole.
All tried their best and no one did any mistakes anymore. Thats why it looks in the resultlist a bit boring, but i can tell you it wasnt at all…
Alltogether our second trip to Eki was a success again and all had lots of fun yesterday again.
