Greetings from Guadloupe.
So far, it has been an amazing experience here at IJSBA's first time at Karujet. We have a very lengthy story to post and the end of the event tomorrow. As we enter the final two days of competition, on of the longest legs is today. Competitors will either be hoping to make up on points or maintain leads as the difficulty increases in the approach to the last checkered flag tomorrow.
Last night, Ski Racing took the stage, for a second time, for a downtown evening show. Racers continue to change positions with the leader, Valantin Dardilat declaring that a two stroke powered Ski still intendeds to be king of the course for the time being. Periodic cloudbursts, courtesy of the Caribbean trade winds, had a large crowd of spectators huddling under tents and covered building alleys did nothing to cool the enthusiasm of the action.
