IFCA Pro Kids, Junior, Youth Freestyle European Championships 2012 – Day 4+5
An early start for the 4th day of competition did not help as the winds failed to pick up. To take the most advantage of the light conditions the competition area was moved further out in the bay. Unfortunately we only could run one heat of the finals and the winners finals had to be cancelled. Paintball was the next activity on the program and the kids were very excited to use some of their energy followed by the lunch break back at the event site. Blue sky’s and sunshine but still no wind, next stop a visit to the Aquarium in Pula guided by Neven Ivesa. The building is a beautiful fortress from the 19th century with all kinds of marine life such as sharks, turtles, piranas, star fish, sea horses and many more. Later that evening Karaoke took place in a cool local bar in Premantura and all the riders got to show off their vocal skills by singing their favorite song.
Another waiting day with warmer temperatures and again lots of activities. A bike tour was organized by Adrenalina mountain bike team a local biking association which took us on a approx 16km beautiful ride through the Nature Park of Kamenjak. Back at the event site a typical Istrian lunch was served and for the rest of the day there were activities such as horse riding, archery, sup and kayaking. Tonight, hang out at the surfers Bar.
Tomorrow the last day of the event we may expect a full day of competition with 20 to 30 knots of winds from the suited direction with the official awards ceremony scheduled for 17:00pm.
