It was actually pretty simple in the end, the good lady at the train station charged me a whopping 10 euro's and i was onto the island! I got to the beach and everything's all set up, the big tents are there and it looks set to be bigger and better than the years before!
Add to that, we've even got some wind!
i've been out sailing this morning on my 5.3 and 92 twinser wave, it wasn't actually that much fun i'll admit! there was enough wind to get going just, but, beyond that there was little to get excited about, i think i made 2 jumps and rode 1 ripple. Vintage Sylt!
Since then i've been walking the beach, checking out the prep and watching some of the racers tuning up.
Albeau looked quick, as always, but so did his french buddy Julien Quentel,
Ross and KP we're out tuning and a couple of other racers but not much else to report besides that.
The forecast looks promising though..
I might go back out again now but if i do i'll take my 5.8 alpha this time, maybe that can give me the turbo i need in the marginal onshore!
