The road to success is never easy. For some the biggest obstacle today was the shore-break, for others the wind and the race course. But when the going gets tough the tough get going and those able to sail fast in both light and strong wind are climbing up the leader board. It's not easy but it's fun...
Some events have a slow start, but not here in Liepaja. Organisation was running like a Swiss clock and all was ready for start at 10 AM. Race committee did not hesitate to abandon the race when wind dropped. 3 races for all fleets in mostly light wind conditions which allowed those who like light air to gain some advantage before strong wind days forecast in the second half of the week.
Practice makes champions. First step towards winning the race and becoming a champion in windsurfing is getting out from the beach. This may not be an easy task especially for those not use to big shore-break. Windy forecast for the rest of the week means you have to master step one because conditions on Monument beach in Liepaja, Latvia can get hard.
