Curacao, Dutch Caribbean Saturday, January 15th 2005
It has been a long time since there has been a windsurfing competition in Curacao. For a school project, Nigel organised a freestyle competition. With no wind plaguing us for months now, there was little chance for wind. However, the wind Gods were happy to comply with our prayers. There was enough to plane and have fun. I got kicked out pretty fast, not landing anything. Hilde had more luck, advancing trough the loser's bracket into the semi-finals. Sergey and Jose where on fire throwing clean grubbies, spock 540's and other freestyle classics. In the end Sergey came out victorious and Jose came in second. Vincent and Hilde shared 3rd. Me? I can't wait until it starts blowing again to prepare for my revenge.
