Tired of being tired

My week at home is over and it’s time to get back to work! I didn’t want to push my body too much after everything it went through at the Europeans. So I took time to recharge and see some doctors to get a green light for trainings. Everything seems to be good with my health now so I can start with trainings tomorrow morning.…

Unexpectedly happy and proud

Sometimes things just don’t go the way you plan and expect. The same was with my Europeans this year… As I last wrote here, I spent quite some time in the Barcelona Hospital emergency room right before the regatta (read here).

Today is the first day of the European Championships but there was no racing due to the strike about the Catalunya Referendum.

It’s not the result I went there for. My goal…

It all started when my Lithuanian friends Vika and Milda went to get their charter boats. And in case you were wondering.. No, we’re not too comfortable to bring our own boats to the Netherlands, this is a mandatory charter event…

Ready for the Worlds?

I’m sitting in a surprisingly comfortable chair in Tallinn Airport, waiting for my flight that will take me through Stockholm to Amsterdam. Final destination Medemblik, where the Radial Women’s Worlds are this year. I’m flying there late, only a few days before the regatta starts, just in time for the (mandatory) charter boat allocation. I will have two and a half days to set everything…
