- Day 1: I was reasonably powered on 5.3/96l, Nina was underpowered on 4.2/91. The problem with being underpowered is that you are likely to end up downwind, where the current is strong and the wind is gusty, with big lulls. I had fun, Nina did not.
- Day 2: Light winds, with some strong gusts. Nina decided to go SUP sailing in the knee- to hip-high gentle waves, and had a lot of fun. I joined here a bit later.
- Day 3: The wind looked good when we went out, but then dropped a bit. Nina did ok on 4.5/92, and watched a few freestylers working on Konos and Burners. This time, I was the one to discover the penalty for being underpowered on 5.3/92. I switched to a 108, which required a rather long walk back to the windsurf rental place. The bigger board got me going, but felt rather boring. We are too spoiled by our own gear..
- Day 4: Rain and more rain all morning long. Very light wind, and very small waves. A good day to sleep a lot and get over the lingering cold we both were fighting with. We ended the day by watching the sunset from the sunset dune, and having a few $2 beers and $4 Caipis on the beach.
