WHAT DID YOU DO THIS SUMMER?
A few impressions and stories from our girls around the globe!
Looking out the window it tells me (Lill) that fall is arriving again to us unfortunate enough to live far away from anything remotely tropic. But up here in Norway the Diva-girls are keeping it going for a little while longer and fighting their way into the (always to small) winter suits to welcome the heavy storms in the weeks to come... A message arrived into my mailbox from our world champion Dorota asking for girls to come to Sylt, and promised no racing in heavy shorebreak! Our dear friend Amara (picture) from Thailand keeps "terrorising" my mailbox with pictures like this one. She is lucky enough to be a Starboard importer and a couple of weeks ago got to try out all the 2005 boards! For those who don't already know, she runs a nice windsurfing operation in Pattaya (link). Myself I have been working with windsurfing all summer and finally(!) got some sailing last week... tuning my FW equipment(!), consisting of one board, one sail, one bom, one mast and the perfect fin... this is embarrassing, but true. But don't be to hard on me. I have worked very hard with the young sailors and actually had 22 kids from 8-15 year attending a Rookie-Camp in August and is the "official aunt" of the Norwegian FE juniors... It would be just great to hear what Lucy, Amy, Dorota, Gina, Margit, Christine, Katarina, Shelly, Karen, Marliess and everyone have been up to this summer! Carrie I know has been out on the water a bit lately, and rumours has it she found it to be a good date-activity... and she also is doing downhill mountain biking! Why don't you send a few words and/or some pictures and we can share some cool moments, even breath some life into the women-windsurfing again - I think we look pretty dead at the moment!
More to come soon! If I don't hear from YOU I will fill up the page with my private summer album :))...
