I won with the charter-boat-lottery!

The calm mindset I described in my previous post was kind of blown away once the organisational part of the Worlds came to light. 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…

Physically not so much (because as an athlete it’s of course physically more exhausting), but being alert 24/7 and solving all the issues made me pretty exhausted. But truthfully, this exhaustion is only an extremely tiny part about the camp because coaching these kids…

Kieli võistlus

Heii! Kieli Nädal on üks äge võistlus, kus lisaks purjetamisele on ka kaldal mõnus melu. Seega on see igatepidi üks tore võistlus, kui nüüd tüüpiline külm ja vihmane ilm välja arvata. Nagu Facebookis kirjutasin, siis esimesel päeval läks mul kohe üle ootuste hästi. Tegin suurepärased stardid ja lõpetasingi sõidud ilusti esikümnes – 2. ja 6. Nende kohtadega platseerusin peale esimest päeva lausa 5. kohale. Esimene…
