Day 3 – Fuerteventura


It shouldn’t be a huge surprise to me that I’ve come to one of the world’s premier windsurfing venues and there’s no wind!

OK, day 1 was good, nudging F5 with chop to add to the fun, but then day 2 dropped to F3 with a period in the afternoon when, in the right location and a 7m sail, you could hit a fast plane and even throw in some gybes, but today…nothing.  If it were just one day, that would be fine.  I’m not as young ad I used to be so a day of rest ain’t all bad.   Otherphil and I played tennis and swam while Dicky-T hooked up to work and emailed all day!

So boo-hoo, one day lost.  Except it looks utterly rubbish for the next two days as well!  Forecast suggests that there might be decent wind for Friday, our last full day here!

I guess it could be worse.  A friend of mine went all the way to Hawaii and was becalmed for half his stay!   Now that’s cruel.

I need to enter a Zen-like state of calm.  How much better is it here than at work?  Now that’s the thing to bear in mind.

    MUCH better, is the answer, wind or no wind. Consider the lack of people-crushing-into-trains, and reduced stress from electronic-nagging-thingys…..bliss. Soak up the sun and surf man and chill……! x
