We have picked up my new McLaughlin optimist at Sailcenter in Almere (the Netherlands) last week on our way to family vacation in Denmark. I’ve had my first sailing tour last Monday when I was invited to join the Aarhus Sejlklub optimist training group for that occasion. My new opti felt GREAT and I am very much looking forward to sailing it competitively soon!
My boat and its equipment was carefully (re-) examined by a Swiss measurer this afternoon and of course passed all tests. I now need to wait for two weeks before I receive all paperwork needed to sail it on national and international regattas.
My special thanks go to Sander Haandrikman at Sailcenter for my fully equipped new boat – see you soon at the Dutch Youth regatta in Workum.
Og til sidst siger jeg mange tak til alle de mange super venlige mennesker i Aarhus Sejlklub. Det var dejligt at have vaeret med selvom det kun var i et par timer!
My new McLaughlin opti has arrived!
I have won my first national sailing trophy this weekend, coming in as second "B" Optimist (born 2004 or later) at the national Optimist regatta in Arbon, Lake Constance. I became 27th overall. There were 107 Optimist sailors in total from Switzerland, Germany and Austria.
Wir haben gestern mit der Klasse 5b des Schulhauses Beewies in Stäfa das Handball-Kantonsfinale 2015 gewonnen und fahren im Juni zur Schweizer Meisterschaft nach Kriens!
