The forecast was scary enough to make me nervous all night. but still in the morning wasnt too hard core. it was just hard (lets call it like that). I did good in the double elimination and i finished 3rd for the event!!! pretty happy with that. but then the conditions got harder and harder, honestly... it got really hard core. but i thought i was already finished and warm, when the news came. i would need to sail again with Karin Jaggi as we were equal points for the for the third place overall ranking. I was scared... properly scared. it was gnarly. but hey, you have to bite it some times, and even if I was really scared, Laure and John and everyone were there supporting us. Men. and we did it. it was 3,3 mega powered up, i could not hold on to my sail. and it was BIG and SCARY. I made a mistake and i played safe then taking a bigger board to be able to get out of the shorebreak easily, but this meant I couldnt ride properly. in the last two minutes i came in and changed board, but then i was too down wind and my last wave was outside the competition area, so in the end I lost and finished fourth over all and Karin third.
But the hero of the day was with no doubt Klaas Voget!!!! he did no less than 9 heats!!! and in hard core sailing... you have to be here ton know how it was. more than respect! he finished second in the end.
so big congrats to all: Musso, Iballa, Karin, Klaas, Josh, Bruch (who did a good come back as well), Johnyboy and also Daida.
