    A good windsurfing sail can last forever. However, the X-Ply materials and monofilm should be carefully cleaned and stored. Learn how to make your sails last longer. The worst enemies of windsurfing sails are sand and humidity, and the most common mistakes occur when de-rigging. Windsurfers are tired - sometimes cold - and want to pack their equipment fast into the car. The truth is that sail care starts while rigging the windsurfing kit. Try to pay attention to wrinkles, imperfections, scratches and dents that may tear your sail in the near future.

It’s my first time spending time in Brittany and it’s definitely worth to visit this place. Renting a little stone house around 12 km from the event site was definitely the right decision. It’s located in the middle of the green country side. No traffic, just a main building, a horse breeding and a nice green cultivated garden next to the little stone house. So relaxed.

    The time on Sylt is really nice so far. Really warm weather, a nice atmosphere on the beach and a lot of positive vibes. The windsurfing conditions were nice in the beginning. and we did one full round of Slalom racing in rough conditions with waves and light wind. Unfortunately I was not really windsurfing as good as I expected. I went on too small gear in my first heat. It was a wrong decision to choose the medium board and 7,8m. In the second round I started well and arrived together with Gunnar Asmussen in 3rd at the first mark, but then jibed too wide at the third mark and lost the safe…

I felt great and was ready to race in the planned long distance, the 3rd stop of the Austrian Pannonia Cup. Unfortunately the wind did not show up in time. Just when the organisation called the event off, a very nice 7 to 15 knots strong south westerly breeze kicked in the bay and allowed us to have a fun session. That’s a rare wind, which makes a lot of crazy chop. Would have been fun to race out there. These conditions need good working light wind gear and a lot…
