Allegro Deski Cup – Day One

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Whilst waiting at Sopot for the Polish Open to start, a chance conversation led me to find out that there was a Formula Windsurfing event running back over at the Hel Peninsula. A while later after further investigation and with help from some Lithuanian windsurfing friends, had the essential information on the event – where to go. Thanks for the help!

I arrived just in time for the start of the Allegro Deski Cup. 44 competitors from 5 nations registered for the event.

Checking the forecast, I thought the wind would increase through the afternoon so only took the 11.0. This lacked a little power particularly in the third race where the wind was dropping steadily to below 10 knots. Probably should have observed the experienced local knowledge where most competitors were using 12.0.

Hubert Mokrzycki was in excellent form and took three convincing bullets today.
