EFPT Palekastro (Crete) - Niklas Report

You can find pictures from the event here:

EFPT Palekastro Crete finished on Sunday with strong winds.
I was on a 4.2 totally overpowered, a bit different conditions to compete in, which also showed in the results that ended up a bit different than usual.

We did two single and two double-eliminations, which means aloot of sailing, almost collapsing there in the end of Saturday. The conditions were hard but I had a great time sailing there with small sails and good action. I had some good heats and made it through to the final heats in
both rounds, the second one I ended up in a 3rd place after beating Nicolas Akgatzian in the double. He likes strong wind so I'm very happy about that heat. In the end I got a 4th place in the event which is my best ever result, really cool after a good winter of training in Brazil
and Egypt.

Really cool people that do the EFPT this year which makes it so much fun and also great organization by Hannes and his guys at the Freak-station.

Monday night we went with the ferry to Athens where we stayed the whole day today doing the tourist-round with old building and cameras, not really use to that but now we seen Athens. Right now we are on the ferry to Chios and from there we will go to Alacati for the next event that will go down in a few days.

Take it easy!
