Downwind practice in Portugal

Today it was supposed to be the full race course practice. Unfortunately the wind wasn’t planning the same thing. Nelo has a good organization and offered a transport for a shorter downwind course instead. We did a 11 km race. It felt good in the beginning but after few km I got tired. There are runs to catch but I had to work hard on them and lost much energy. It’s so cool to see the elite paddlers catch the runs. It look so easy. It was good to get on the water but I’m glad it was just 11 km today. Now the weather forecast is predicting similar conditions on saturday and sunday. Saturday will then proberbly be the race day for single surfskis and Sunday for the doubles if the forecast is similar tomorrow. Many wants to participate in the double surfski race and there is a lack of double surfskis. Nelo is considering making two heats to give as many as possible the chance to participate in doubles race. Tomorrow I will try to get an opportunity to test the new Epic V10 Sport and the Fenn Spark.
