What Do Sailors Do When They Wait For Wind?

Whilst we wait for the wind to fill in here in Santander the sailors have found another way to occupy themselves, and that’s a makeshift game of volleyball in the carpark.

The Hobie Cat trailer is being used as one of the uprights with a piece of rope tied to the centre wall.

On what sailors do whilst they wait for breeze at major competitions, Evaluation Panel member Nadine Stegenwalner (GER) said, “I stay close to the boat park but don’t get mixed up in the crowd so I can stay focused.”

So, what we want to know is what you get up to whilst you wait for the breeze. Comments welcome 🙂


About ISAF

There are two principal meetings held by the International Sailing Federation every year: the ISAF Annual Conference held in November and the ISAF Mid-Year Meeting held in May. In addition, the ISAF Executive Committee meet four times a year; during the Conference and Mid-Year Meeting and on two other occassions. ISAF Annual Conference Every November, the ISAF Annual Conference brings together the leading figures from the sailing world to discuss, debate and decide upon the key issues in the sport of sailing. The ISAF Committees, Sub-committees and Commissions all have the opportunity to debate all the issues in their respective areas. Based on these discussions they will then make recommendations to the ISAF Council, which is the final decision making body of ISAF. The Conference concludes with three days of Council meetings, when the major decisions which affect sailing's future will be made. ISAF Mid-Year Meeting Held annually every May, the ISAF Mid-Year Meetings bring together the ISAF Council, ISAF Executive Committee and ISAF Events Committee. The key focus of the Council meeting is to consider financial issues and follow up on matters deferred from the Annual Conference.
