We have been yesterday to Eki Tropical Island for our Windsurfing race again. Lucy, Sanja, Nicole, and Lalia joined me there with NW wind and 25knots. Palani was watching us and maybe one day he will be brave enough to join us in the race.
I prepared the screen for nice shot of us at the briefing, but then i think a question came in and afterwards i thought i have done the picture, but i must have missed it and was totally surprised today that i couldnt find it. Sorry for that.
My second fault yesterday was that i didnt tell Lalia to read the first map reversed. She followed that map while we others surfed it reversed. She got totally lost. Sorry again for that Lalia.
Sanja’s avi froze after the first third of the race and with this fast course she had no real chance to follow. Nicole had some issues with the sim crossing.
The start of Lucy and Sanja was great, followed by Nicole. Only i was a little too early, tried to surf along the line to cross it hopefully in time, but with that i missed the buoy and the line when start beep came and i had to turn around and chase behind the others. Sanja and Lucy had a nice duell at the front until the technical issues slowed Sanja down and i could pass her. During the rest of the race I could catch up slowly with Lucy and in the end she crossed the finishline just a fraction of a second before me (see in results further down). Sorry but i couldnt take a picture of that as well and got only a picture of Sanja finishing.
The second race saw again a great portstart from Sanja. She managed to cross the line with much more speed before Lucy, Lalia, Nicole and me and was quick 100m ahead, while we others tried to find our speed and followed her. I could catch up slowly with Sanja, passed her after buoy 6 and then sailed slowly away from here. Lucy caught up with Sanja slowly, but Sanja could manage to stay in front of Lucy. Behind the two Nicole and Lalia followed.
Lalia was struggling a bit with the complexity of the courses at Eki, because it was her first time here. But for that she did really well and she will learn them quickly .
And here are the results from yesterday:

Last week i mentioned already that the leading Gods of North Sea added a race with the most common boats in These days nearly parallel to our race and they keep running this race.
Their Argument was i started this “war” because i put a RACE parallel to their CRUISE on tuesdays and thats why they can add a RACE parallel to our RACE in revenge.
The mistake in their argument is only that they just compare apples with cherrys. Races and Cruises have different clients. A race doesnt ask for the same sailors as a cruise and that is the reason why a race parallel to a cruise doesnt really influence the amount of Cruisers, but a new race parallel to an exisiting race influences the existing race awfully well.
The Co-leader at North Sea even dared to blame me for making someone leave North Sea racing, not joining their new race and keep on sailing at our Windsurfing race (I hope i will never have to take these pills as well).
This is another example how the leading Gods of North Sea excuse their bad Godlike attitude with wrong created arguments only for their statistics and their own advantages.
The worse their attitude and actions in the future will become the bigger will be the compliment for the good work of Lucy and me at TrYC.
Stay safe and healthy and see you next week at TrYC again for more exciting Windsurfing fun
hugs and kisses
