In the early afternoon the wind finally turned side-shore. But it didn´t back off at all. To the contrary, it became pretty wild. This overdose of wind also didn´t any good to the waves. The otherwise solid swell was a bit blown down and doing cutbacks was kinda out of control, at least further up the point.
It still seemed to be fun as long as you owned a sail small enough and / or had the sailing skills of Swedish World Cupper Gustav Haggstrom. You just had to survive the odd squall combined with gale force gusts. But with every of these squalls – there weren´t too many – the wind turned a bit more clockwise and thus improved its direction. More fluid down-the-line sailing was now possible and some set waves were lining up really nice.
The wind became more gusty now, with periods of wind speeds barely enough to keep the sailors planning on their small sails and then again full blasts barely controllable even with these small sails. More and more windsurfers arrived proving that the sport is fully alive here. And the long point easily handled the growing crowd.
