Today was the second day in the freestyle discipline at the PWA event on Aruba. During these two days the wind was never suitable to finish any heats. The heat area is about 300m outside and even the judges are on the sea on boats. Hugo Lewis from the PWA wrote us on Twitter, that huge storm clouds were approaching the heat area, which looked evil and brought some wind for a moment. The first heat was started twice, but also cancelled twice due to the disappearing wind. Jesper Orth, our man on Aruba, has still has some time left until the slalom competition starts, decided to rent a bike to explore the island a bit, instead of waiting for his lost equipment to arrive.

Looking at everybody sailing and waiting for your own delayed gear is never that great fun.
When I called the American airline office to check what was going on, I got told the following “ Wow Sir, we got a lot of nice information here for you. Your bags are all over the place, but should all eventually arrive to Aruba”. Great I thought all I can do is wait.
