Sarah Quita reports from Jeri

Hi all!
Right now I am in Brazil, Jericoacoara for some freestyle training. It has been one of my biggest dreams to go to Brazil and now it has finally come true! I love it here! The language is so beautiful and the people are all very kind. I still have to get used to the fact that it's windy everyday! I have sailed 10 days non stop. I even broke my board one day but they fixed it and I was on the water the next day already.
Jericoacoara has one main spot that is usually very crowded so Monday we decided to go to a lagoon where we could sail on flat water. We were supposed to leave at about 10:30 but there was a misunderstanding so we ended up going 2 hours later. It was all worth it though! I went with Anxton Otaegui, Steven van Broeckhoven, Damian Portier, Jelle Caers and Dario. I was fully powered on my 4.3 and loved every minute of my session. I finally learned to do the normal stance Kono's so I was really happy at the end of the day! (source: Starboard)

Zara Davis wins Speed European Championships 2009

After a very frustrating week wind wise, the result from ISWC European Championship held in Dungarvan Ireland was down to the 11th hour, the wind all week had just not been enough to race till the final day when a chance came midday, Zara was ready with her new Simmer race sails and Mistral boards and hit the start when the flag when up. Little did she know the wind was to last only 10 minutes out of a 90 minute round. She managed to get the two runs in that see needed to take the Womens 2009 European Speed Crown.

Zara said: "I was very lucky to be ready for the start and got my two runs in, a lot of riders did not get the second run in the time, I took my Mistral Slalom 95 and Simmer SC4 7.0m which was a bit big but I wanted to get two safe runs in then change down, but I did not get the chance. The site has definitely got potential with the right wind." (source: Pete Davis)
