Back in Vass!!

Just got back to Vass after an epic journey after the event finished in Fuerteventura! Finished in 9th in the second double elimination which meant I was 11th overall really happy! We had a crazy night in the tent at the closing ceremony which led to a pretty relaxed day afterwards and fortunately it wasnt windy otherwise would of been a complete waste. The day after we sailed downwind at centre 2 me and Bubble made the mistake of rigging to big and after we had lugged all the camera equipment with us it was way to much of an effort to change down, we got a bit of footage but gave up once we felt completely destroyed. After another day of filming we then decided to head back north as we were flying out of Lanzarote so we thought we would be able to sneak in a session in Costa Teguise! So we headed up to Corralejo to meet Bubbles good friend and shit hot wavesailor Will Ward. We didnt have his phone turned on so we just headed to the first windy looking beach we saw and luckilly bumped into him there! So we had a sofa for the night got settled in and decided to go out for steak and then just for "one" in Corkys bar!! Next thing we knew we were drinking rum and coke out 2 litre jugs in some club and next thing we knew was Will was late for work and we had missed our ferry to Lanzarote! Fortunately we made the lunch one but this meant no windsurfing for us...
After 2 days sleeping at Gatwick I finally made it to Kefalonia the island next to Lefkada on Sunday. Just as I thought I was back home we found out the ferries to Vass were all cancelled because it was so windy. I just made it on as a foot passenger but had to leave my good friend Greg and his Van behind. It must of been about 45kts as we were pulling into Vass and with the sounds of the car alarms going off and the greek lady crying and praying behind me I could see why they were all cancelled!
