The world champion actually wanted around the North of kiten, at the monument at the northernmost tip. “But there was no fishing boat that wanted to sail out to me in the neighborhood of that point, because of the high waves. That is why I am a bit more south of the water merged, with gusts of up to force 7 or 8.”
