PWA Turkmenistan – Behind the Scenes w. Jordy Vonk

Day 3 – Impressive light wind racing

Again it was a 13 hour day in Turkmenistan, this time without any sailing in the morning. Like the day before the wind kicked in around 4/5 in the afternoon. This time is was enough to finish the semi’s and start the finals. I just missed out on a qualifying spot for the final, some sea grass made 3 people pass me so easy.. In the losers final I had some trouble as 8 people wanted to start at the boat and there was hardly any space for me left, it forced me to go and I went 0.5 second over early together with Enes Yilmazer…. really a shame, as the wind was gone 2 minutes after.

Also the winners final got cancelled, too bad as my fellow team mate Pascal Tosselli was rocking that final but after the 3rd mark nobody was planing any more. Let’s hope we can at least finish the elimination before the competition is over.
