23 hours in emergency room in Barcelona

Today is the first day of the European Championships but there was no racing due to the strike about the Catalunya Referendum. All the sailors are really pissed about it, understandably so, and I would be too… except I’m not. I’m grateful. As to why? Well, explaining that is a slightly longer story so get comfy! My traveling to Barcelona started early morning in Tallinn…

Long time coming… the Worlds

I’ve been pushing off this post for an embarrassingly long time now, but after getting back I’ve been crazy busy. There’s a lot to do with the sailing school and managing everything for the big changes ahead of me. I’m not happy with my result from the Worlds, but I’m not sad about it either.

I will have two and a half days to set everything…

And then I just won’t write anything. Because my heart wants to…

Legs like spaghetti

First “double day” is over and I actually feel kinda weird. At the same time I’m exhausted and energetic. I guess the energy comes from the happiness that I get to train as much as I’d like to every day. Let’s see if my body feels the same tomorrow… Anyways, my day started with a 2-hour sailing session with the Estonian Sailing Academy sailors. The…
