2013 Season Summary

Formula, Formula Windsurfing, Windsurfing, James Briggs, GBR-91, jamesbriggs.me, Point-7, Starboard, Christian Bratsch, Lake Neusiedl, Austria

With limited exposure to Formula Windsurfing through 2012 as my focus had been more on Offshore Rowing, an event early in the season in France highlighted that I would need to put in some focussed training in order be competitive. I created a set of simple goals to help retain that focus. My primary goal […]

2011 Season Summary

James Briggs, GBR-91, jamesbriggs.me, Point-7, Starboard, Formula, Windsurfing

The 2011 Formula Windsurfing season has come to a close for me. I am now once again back in Guernsey working on how to cover the expenses incurred through the campaign. Alongside this, I look forward to hitting the local beaches here for some fun times through the winter storms whilst everyone else runs for […]

From Norway to Italy…

Germany, Road, Trees

Poland, Road, Cobbles, Trees, Fields

SWEgulls

Sweden, Göteborg, Bird, Seagull

As the ferry was closing in on Göteborg, I had my first encounters with ‘The SWEgull’. Overall, seemed much more polite that those back on The Rock as they didn’t try to steal my breakfast! Regardless of these first impressions, it didn’t stop me guarding my food vigilantly. Safeguarding duty complete, looked a little further […]

The first was excellent and found me some cheap fuel, the next through the middle of Hamburg, not so good. […]
