Europeans Warm up.

Horsens, Denmark. and the Europeans start on thursday, most people are already here, or arriving soon. 46 boats should make for great racing. Yesterday I hit the water for the first time in full sun and 8-12 knots of breeze. About 25 other boats were out, everyone testing out their speed. I was fast on this pre practice err..practice day. Current European Champion Arnaud Psarofaghis was quick but didnt have the height and he was back using a KAMSL13 for the afternnon session.

It doesnt really matter now though, people will get faster and faster and the forecast is sunny and 15 knots for the event. Hmm.. heard that before.

The Brits have erected a small marque which has been quickly taken over by two ducks, or "dinner" as they are now referred too.

More later, we are waiting for the wind now...

You should be able to claim the cost of the marquee on expenses then.

Why did you became second and not first?.... Or isn't that too important. A Mach 2 first and second, great enough!

congratulations for the SILVER medal after a tough fight were I really hoped that you would win it. Anyway, you deserved it after such a good fight and show on the water and hopefully the silver will stick very positive in your head after being home with family and friends.

Who would have thought it would have got down to a penalty shoot off?
