Well it is ciao ciao to Italy for a while and ciao ciao to Scotty who flew back to Australia. He will be travelling with a huge hangover as he and Lars got on it together last night. I woke up about 4 am to this really loud snoring and went … I know that snoring … It is Lars!
We had a fabulous two and a half weeks with Scotty and the three of us are scheming for another holiday together next year … Hopefully with Pete and fi involved!
Well the regatta is all over red rover. Very disappointingly the last day yielded no racing … not enough wind early on. We were all barracking for Simon from the uk to win … He had won four races and had gotten two seconds. The split fleet and drops were very weird and a Dane ended up winning who had only gotten two firsts. It didnt make things any better that he is a yeller out on the water and probably one of the least popular guys. An Aussie … Mark bulka (not sure of spelling) got a well deserved third.
John said it was one of the best regattas he has ever sailed in. Well done Italy! We look forward to loads more regattas in this country.
Next … Croatia tomorrow. We won’t have much Internet for the next three weeks … So that will be interesting for my addicted husband!
Ciao for now!
