Sylt caddy action!

With no hope of waves in Sylt this year, I offered my caddy services
to Finian. The wind was offshore and the course area was miles away,
so having your spare gear on hand was a huge advantage. After 3 days
of racing and 5 rounds Finian was in 3rd. I wish I could take all the
credit, but it was mostly him! Unfortunately disaster struck on the
final day. First his fin snapped when he was leading in the quarter
finals. Nothing I could do but watch. Then in the final race of the
day it came down to the wire with Cyril for both 3rd in the event and
3rd overall. Finian had a killer start and looked to have had it all
sown up, but Cyril got stuck in a lull and the race director cancelled
the heat. In the re-run it didn't go so well for poor Finian and Cyril
took all the glory. Devastated for him as he really did everything
right to win, but sometimes it seems things dont go your way. I expect
he will come back even stronger next year. For me... no wave action at
all. Didn't even take my sails out of the tent! Next stop
Tireeeeeee...... Forecast is insane all week, so hopefully it stays
good for next week too.
