Nordic Championships Day Two

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

The second day of competition saw some very mixed conditions.

Initially, we were greeted by the aftermath of fresh northerly breeze which nudged the coast of Sweden overnight before setting out west leaving behind it some rather damp conditions and a light north east breeze.

Soon enough, we were basking in 25 degrees of sunshine on the beach. What wind there was had moved to an easterly direction, straight offshore.

At 1500, the postponement flag went down and all Formula Windsurfers set out on the water. For around 15 minutes, there seemed like there would be enough breeze to get some racing in today. However, the wind then completely shut off. After some time waiting for conditions to return, thunder clouds rolled in, lightning was seen, there was a sudden downpour of rain and the fleet called off the water marking the end of the day.

I am pleased to say that the sun has again returned just in time for this evenings social, a feast of barbecue fare.
