Lucky win after poor sailing
No, I did not sail well last weekend. I tend to be super nervous when I participate in a regional regatta. I hear the other kids, parents and coaches say "Oh, Simon is here. No chance of winning". That puts a bit of pressure on me...
And in fact, I did not sail well. Many tactical mistakes. My brother Niklas, who was coaching again me and the other kids from my club, almost fell overboard his coach rib in anger.
Anyway, I spotted a wind shift just before the finishing line and luckily won ahead of Luis and Jerry-Mo who had been leading the entire race.
We only had one race on Saturday before a thunderstorm kicked in. No wind on Sunday but close soccer matches instead.
Coming up next is a training at Walensee the second weekend in July.
