After a week where the forecast flip-flopped from eight-foot offshore Fistral bombs to total slop come last weekend it ended more the sloppy end of the pitch. So the call was made to move to the English Nationals to the shelter of Tolcarne and considering it’s one of the UK’s leading closeouts it wasn’t actually too bad. Very contestable conditions. Congrats to all the crew that went big. The Men’s and Women’s Open finalists earn a spot in the team to go up to Scotland in April (fingers crossed) for the British where the squad for the ISA World Games will be decided. This is the last chance for an Olympic spot for a lot of keen crew from the non-surfing superpowers.
