Jørgen, Pekka & my self was waiting patient for the wind to arrive at Larkollen yesterday, and we was rewarded with a great session at "smørbrød". We sailed with 4,4m2 and got a litle taste off how good it could be out there. And yes it was sideshore, but we always had the feeling that the wind & waves was almost ready to go off but they just wouldn't let go. So in the end we went back to the beach only to find out that the wind realy kicked inn as we was almost in at the beach. I sail a couple off rounds at "Hvalen" but pretty soon my sail was to big to handle and I went back to the beach. Considered going out with my 3,7m2 but it was getting darker every minute so I dropped it. One off the guys messured the wind to steady 21 m/s just after we had rigged down.
After a night in my van that was shaking in the wind all night we got out off our sleepingbags around 04.30 this morning, time to get up an rigg. Tried to get out on the water with my 3,7m2 around 05.15 but it was blowing much more than the 21 m/s we meassured yesterday night. I was totaly overpowered even in the shelter off the forrest. I managed to get out on the water but couldn't even get out of the bay due to the nukin wind. After a while I dropped it and decided to rigg down and go to work.
