Windsurfing Race Day 13 with Sea Boss Rider at Saint Aubrey

The weather conditions were actually pretty sunny yesterday with some little couds and a personal shower. Sanja, Adeli, Ella, Amy, Ester and Erika joined me yesterday on our normal courses with wind North and 25knots. The windcompass tricked Amy in the first race and she wasnt able to finish it. Erika lagged in the crossing before buoy OE and when she got the control back the already ran into the buoy. In second race she had to resit once.

I was much too optimistic at the start of the first race and practiced an extra turn to follow all others in the race. Sanja with a perfect start and a perfect race ran far in front and couldnt be caught by anyone anymore. I could manage to pass Erika when she unfortunately hit the buoy, could pass Ester with a better buoy turn in lap 2 and nearly caught Ella on the finish line. I loved this chase.

The start of race 2 was quite normal. Only Erika and Amy had a little sleepy start this time and followed the fleet

In the second race Sanja and Adeli had the whole time a great duel close in front of me, which Sanja won on the last two legs and i had the best popcorn seat for that duel.
Behind us Ester and Ella had another exciting duel during the whole race which Ester finished just a blink earlier

Sometimes i think it sounds boring to say always how exciting these races are, but for the sailors who are involved week after week in their exciting duels its never boring, like yesterday again. If you dont believe it come and watch the races and ask them yourself or even better join us and feel it yourself.

Here are the results from yesterday:
