Sotavento day 2: Crap! Wind came and went every 60 seconds; add a mild ocean swell to the mix and hanging on to the boom every time the wind dropped (to zero) became a real nightmare. To add insult to injury, i had to be ferried back by a jet-ski when the current pushed me (while under-powered of course!) to the freestyle training area. The only people who enjoyed the day were the pro slalom team, training on 8m and the pro freestylers who somehow manage to plane on napkin-sized sails. And by the end, the blisters burst so I had to buy gloves. Gets 'Average' only for the sand/sun/heat combo.

Hope for better tomorrow!
