In the beginning little wind, but wind quickly took to 18 a 20 knots and then it becomes survival especially if you have no experience with Formula, it was dead scary. Fortunately without damage to the side. After that class with my 7.3. Together with Marius long rack made to look who was fastest, the difference was very small: Was great fun.

Despite there being only 8 degrees was predicted was not at all cold, as the Sun came out it was really tasty, and certainly a lot better than last week.

Wind was Z/so, so we went to the Point. On the point was the pressure, had to search for a bit of a good spot.
