Regatta time

It was time for Regatta this weekend for Laser in Hoorn and it was a busy marina. As we are waiting on a spare part to arrive we have a great spot in the marina and it was so fun to see the sailors prepare and set sail out on the lake, they are really skill full I must say even though i still think it looks funny when grown up men and women are in these small boats as this was something we used to do as kid to learn how to sail. But it is fun and I understand why they do it. People from all over Europe was here to try and take the trophy. Let the best man or woman win! 🙂

Lovely May

May is here and that should mean spring and it has turned that way, we had a week with weird weather but now all seem to be gone and the sun is here. We are out sailing still and we have about 3 more weeks to sail before I need to start a new job in Amsterdam. That is going to be pretty exiting. today was one of those days with hardly no wind, sun high up and felt warm in the face, finally May is here. 🙂
