Well, Sylt..again...fifth year in a row and finally some wind! It was good the organizers decided to start the event one day earlier. Therewith, we got to sail and after some years, we finally had a result in wave again! I did not have much time to prepare, lost my contact lenses 30 min before my heat and just had 5 min to get used to the current, wind and direction. I sailed pretty ok at least waveriding-wise, but did the mistake to try too long to get a better jump in. So, I lost pretty close. Since, the wind shifted to easterly directions, we could not sail a double, but enjoyed the time to the fullest...oh yeah...classic Sylt, as always! Nice to see everybody again and have one or two beers! ;)
September felt like the warmest and unwindiest month this year. Summer returned fully to Northern Germany and Denmark and we could spend a lot of time at the seaside or went out to restaurants in the evenings. Everybody moves outside and I really enjoy these times in Hamburg as you have the feeling that time stands still for a short time and the atmosphere is peaceful, full of joy and harmony. Could not the whole world be like that?
