Lost luggage. No paddling?
What are the chances that 100% of the people arriving today had their luggage (and paddling gear) lost somewhere in transit?
OK, I admit, 100% of three paddlers is not many people but still, they all came in without their bags. It is a bit stressful to think you could be travelling all the way from USA and Australia and not being able to paddle because your luggage was lost.
The good thing is that we have all paddling gear available for you:
Safety orange t-shirt
You are pretty much setup to go even if you arrive just with your hand luggage.
Downwind theory first, downwind practice next
The morning looked pretty flat with some small breaking waves at the beach - perfect for some surf zone fun.
In the afternoon the forecast was showing some sweet runs moving downstream in the Strait of Gibraltar. I recommend windy.com as a good source of downwind data.
