(machine translated in 2018) Nice wind and weather forecasts and I had a free day, super. After getting my RAM F9 at the sail maker by going to the Kabbelaarsbank. It looked good out there, a lot of planing surfers and clear blue sky. Not at all cold. Warp Warp 7.8 F2011Na just talk my rigged, beautiful day to my newly bought F2011s once Warp test. Started my iSonic 111 under it, but because the wind was very soft from finally switched on my newly purchased iSonic 121. That went better, but wind continued to off so have to stop. Was a nice day, little little wind, but with its Sun was really enjoying it. [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) Lots of Select SL7/RS7's get problems with a disengage base. Peterman has a nice article transferred. I have been given in 2009 a RS7 49 cm where the base apart from was.

As a former baseball player, I like to watch some games on TV. Baseball is, for me, an attractive game to watch. Our dutch team is not one of the worst teams, but now have achieved the highest possible: world champion. [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) Right after the last heats of the last regiocup of this year we had an award ceremony. I was 2nd in the Silverfleet.

Increasing wind predicted with changing direction, not the best for a competition. A total of 10 heat sailed, I won the first 9, easy. The last heat I had a bad start and Ko and Andrea sailed very well, so I became 3rd. With 9 wins and 2 heats deduction: 1st today. It is becoming very clear that I no longer belong in the Silverfleet and will sail in the Goldfleet next year. [Read...]

Light wind, so took the largest slalom set: GT85 with RAM 8.4. Between showers, wind was good, for the rest, gusty. When I got of the water, I noticed a tear in the RAM 8.4. So rigged the Warp 8.0 which I'll now have to use tomorrow during competition. I had to adjust the trim compared to the RAM 8.4. [Read...]

I had a lot of cloudiness and rain expected. It rained a lot at home when I went away, but along the way it quickly became dry and then had no rain. Around an hour or 2 a 3 pulled it even open all the way and it was soaking up the Sun, okay, be burned. The autumn is very very well started. Hopefully next weekend. [Read...]
