Today great wind blew in the afternoon and organizers started the first single elimination. The judges decided to appoint 7 minutes for a heat. We have to do 6 moves on each tack and 3 of the best of them will be counted. Also, we can fall 3 times on each tack. We were lucky to have heats up to the semifinal and the spectators were lucky to see what the modern freestyle is.
I am satisfied with my performance today, and I think that it compliles with all the goals i'd set.
Also I want to note excellent sailing of Brazilian João "Janjão" Henrique who passed through 2 heats as well. And of course I want to congratulate my Canadian friend Philip Soltysiak who's sailing was unbeleivable today and who managed to reach the semifinal. Good job, Phil!
Tomorrow the skipper's meeting will be at 09:30 with a first possible start of 10:00.
