Windsurfing Race Day 16 with Sea Boss Rider at Saint Aubrey

Sanja, Ella, Lucy, Amy and Izi joined me yesterday on our reversed courses with wind from South and 25 knots. We missed a couple of racers yesterday who were caught in RL but will be back soon again.
The weather was mainly sunny yesterday with some local showers in second race. Izi got disconnected before the startline and Amy crashed between buoy OE and ON probably on the dangerous cross there. The rest could make it without problems… well except me in second race. I lost my windsurfer on my screen after bouy OE and sailed nearly the whole second race on my bare feet (see in pics further down). Just dont ask me how hot my feet were after the race.

The first start went really well. All 6 crossed the line within 11sec.

At the end of last lap i nearly caught Sanja and Lucy was in an exciting duel with Izi. Our duels went half of first and the whole second lap. It was really exciting racing side by side or just behind each others.

I could manage to pass Sanja on the last leg.

close finish between Sanja and me

Izi managed to sail a bit away from Lucy

Izi finished 2nd and Lucy 3rd
Ella finished 4th

Amy was the whole time at the end of the fleet and so we couldnt catch her on a picture during the race.

Amy finished 5th

The start of second race was a bit different. Sanja, Ella, Amy and me started within 8sec and Lucy follwed a bit later. Only Izi got disconnected before the start and didnt see the start line.

Between buoy OE and ON i lost my windsurfer on my screen after hitting the dangerous cross there.

my windsurfer never came back and my soles were nearly ready for fry eggs

I could pass Sanja on the second last leg this time and saved the little lead to the finish line.

Ella followed us
and Lucy came in short after Ella

I can surf and sit on the water without any technical help. I should try to walk over the water…hahahahaha

We were yesterday only a little fleet but we had still close and exciting duels.
