Yaaa! Back again :) Finally I had a good day of competing again. Really nice. We had our first day of competition here in Aruba today, and I had to sail against Arrianne again. Not our favorite draw as we would rather be cheering for each others, but we are getting more used to it. The conditions on this little Island are tricky. It is off shore, and super gusty, but also the waters are weird for spinning moves. But I still like it here. I like it that it is a bit more rough and tricky, and there are still some super flat spots, as well as some chops a bit further out. I had an all right heat against Arrianne, I was landing a lot of moves though they weren’t all super stylish. I was super happy to win the heat and move onto next heat against world champion Sara-Quita. It was nice to sail against Sara, and I actually had a really good heat landing a funnell, Eslider and nearly a flaka Diablo on the outside. Pretty cool. It was so nice to be able to show a bit of my skills. In loosers final I had to meet Yoli De Brendt. This time I did not sail so well, I think I was a biiit tired, but I had a few okay moves. By then I had been in the water for like 2-3 hours (it was like 4 oclock), and I still only had had a youghurt since the morning. But I didn’t really feel it because my head was focused on the competition. Yoli took the win, which means I am currently ranked 4th. Everything can still happen really, but I am just super happy to have some good heats here in Aruba, to move into the top fourth, and show some of my tricks :) I hope I will keep sailing well the coming days! :)
