Sailing

The sailing season has started … at least for me it did on Troels’ boat yesterday afternoon.

We just went out for a little cruise passing the old Tuborg harbour and Hellerup beach. The weather was quite nice and I had my sea-sick pills, so everything was good ;)

Reaching the limit…

After Troels’ Good Bye party yesterday evening and a horribly short night I had a nice brunch with Troels and looked forward to another (final) good sail… since the weather was nice and the wind was good.
Unfortunately it was too good… after enjoying the first 20min of the trip, I started to dislike the idea of sailing and another 10min later I filled a bag with the brunch I just got in the morning… the crew, which decided to return by then, and me, not feeling my hands for a while (how strange is that?), tried to enjoy the rest of the trip (as much as we could)…
Safely back on solid ground (and lying on the pier for a while) we went on to the NBI and finished the first official version of our (hopefully soon) ATLAS note: “A probability based approach to PID in the TRT detector of ATLAS”.

IT HAS BEEN SENT OUT!!! YEAH!!!

And now Troels is off to Australia…
Greetz, enjoy and see/hear you soon!

Another fine sailing turn…

Another day with just too good weather to stay inside working all day long… and again my supervisor made a very spontaneous and again awesome decision… “Let’s go sailing, today!”… and so we went out for another fine sailing turn with some more members of the HEP group. This time we sailed out on his Bandholm-like sailboat called Artemis. After crusing around for a while we stopped at a beach in the north of Copenhagen and went for a swim…
just beautiful!

What it’s like to be a sailor…

picture taken from http://www.skovshovedhavn.dk/… today I at least got a bit closer to the answer to that question!
Instead of watching the France-Switzerland game I accepted Troels’ sponteaneous offer to go sailing… which in many ways turned out to be the right decision. First the game must have been somewhat boring (0:0) and second, the trip was just great… beautiful weather, windy enough to sail but not to windy to get seasick (which I was a bit afraid of)…

so just a perfect afternoon…

… unfortunately the evening (Brazil game) wasn’t as exciting…<
