Luderitz – 8 October 2008 PDF Print E-mail
Written by Basil Cambanis

The wind blew as expected today but high tide came and went quickly in the morning, and it's in this short time frame that the best speeds were recorded.  I went to the other extreme today and took too big a kite for the wind peak which coincided with high tide, so I tried to hang on but I was not in control during the run. More lessons learnt.

I guess it was a bit ambitious to expect to get the hang of this wind strength and new spot in a few days.  It's due to blow tomorrow and the high tide will be later and should last longer, so I expect big things will happen and records should tumble; I too hope to improve my speeds by a respectable margin.

Tomorrow will probably be the last day of competition as the next strong wind is expected next Tuesday, which is one day too late.
