Costa Brava PWA Slalom
We got wind here on the first 2 days in the this years Slalom competition here at Costa Brava. On day one I was out, but my first heat never got started in the light onshore conditions. Yesterday the wind changed to southwesterly direction and picked up to almost 20 knots. I was on my 8,8 and made some adjustments on my trimm. I put a smaller fin than normal in my 122, a 44 Vector canfire. In heat one I passed in third position behind Josh Angulo and Finian Maynard. In my second heat I had a bad start, but the heat got cancelled luckily. In the resail I started boat and came with the pack towards the first mark. After the jibe the wind dropped again and I thought it will be cancelled again. But we continued racing. I passed Kev, who had a broken rope at the boomend and suddenly was in a save 4th position at the last inside jibe. But I stopped after the jibe and was not upwind enough. Finian came from behind made it into planning and passed me in upwind position. Round one was over, but position 17 is much more than I expected.
