Day eighty nine
August is almost here and it means that there is basically just one month left for a full scale work.
Three days of no wind at all were disastrous for every single windsurfer, but were a paradise for speed lovers. Jet skies were running so hard, that we had to refuel them through the day, which is not happening very often.
Beginners had their share of fun too by the way. With the wind coming offshore, it made lessons quite a challenge for instructors, keeping their pupils closer to the beach. One thing is good in the days like this, is that the water stays all day long calm, clean and flat. So as soon as the entire job was done, the boys pulled out the wakeboard to entertain the lazy crowd on the beach a bit.
But as the fun for beginner came to an end, so began the fun for all wind hungry experienced folks. With and average speed of 25 knots and shore break rising, the conditions were quite a challenge for many of sailors. So there is no shame for those, who ended down wind and were picked up by our crew.
Although, everyday we have new people coming and most of them become good friends of ours, it’s always sad to say farewell to people you know. We’ve seen many familiar faces this month and we really hope to see all of them again next season. Of maybe some of them even till the end of this year.
Food for thought for all those people, who are about to take their lessons of windsurfing: Remember, that your instructor takes your victories and failures sometimes much closer than you do!=)
See you on the beach
