CANARIES CALLING

El Medano is a great place with a good vibe and the standard of sailing is very high, which helped push me

arriannewave 1This year I planned to enter the waves so we based ourselves in El Medano, sailing the harbour wall and El Cabezo, we also managed to find a great freestyle spot so I could continue to train for the freestyle event as well. El Medano is a great place with a good vibe and the standard of sailing is very high, which helped push me. I must admit we treated ourselves to two weeks in an apartment with friends, but really missed the van so when it was time to head to Fuerta(ventura) it was exciting to be back! As we left Tenerife, so did the wind, and it arrived in Fuerta! Fuerta was very different again, very dusty and very windy, great for sailing, slightly harder for camping. Luckily we had some great friends there who let us use there washing machine and hot water. Also with the competition I am lucky enough to get accommodation from the event organisers so it was another week in a hotel.

Competition week was great I felt the training paid of and I was less fazed by the tricky conditions this year, which enabled me to take second and set myself up in a good place for PWA Holland
