good morning from warm sweden. there was no racing yesterday because there was no wind. there was water on the ice and I expect that's the case today. the wind is up at least here. we will see what happens when we get there. above are photos from yesterday
it was a good day to take your boat for a walk. the wind stayed away. there's a nice monotype from the netherlands here and I'm hoping to catch a ride on it opening ceremony tonight...
Off we go to Lake Glan in Sweden. Driving through northern Germany to catch the first ferry of the day to Denmark, a little more driving, then the second ferry to Sweden. We'll be there tonight.
It's Sweden! Lake Glan near Norrkoping. Photo is Steve Madden aligning runners.
We leave tomorrow morning.
Greetings from Bad Z where we are waiting to learn where the DN Worlds and European Chammpionship will be sailed. The weather here is the coldest I've ever experienced and the snow on the ground makes everything right, like how you would expect a charming town in northern Germany to look. I'll have more later when I know where we are headed.
