Increasing wind predicted, up to wind force 7, SW, so: De Punt. Sailed with Jurjen Marius and Menno. Wind was a lot less then predicted. Menno went out with 6.7, he could plane easily. So rigged the Warp 7.0. Practiced gybes. PR on the NauticalMile: 51.67 km/h average. Good slalom pratice. Today my good winter suit and winter shoes, this time no cold feet. [Read...]

Finally some good southwest wind. Took a day of. Sailed the Isonic 111, Warp F2009 and C3 Venom 38 cm. First time with the Venom 38 cm under this set: better than the SL2, less nervous than the SL4. Jibing also went better. After 2 hours wind died out! It was nice to be back on the water. Jibing went pretty damn good, speed in the harder gusts was good. Nice! [Read...]

I wanted to go to Kabbelaarsbank, but winds was good at Grevelingendam. Surfers were plaining with 7.5. Started: iSonic 121 en Warp 7.8, wind gone. Switched to GT85 with R-Type 9.5 in gusts even big, but wonderful, could plane all the time. It was grey, wind was minimal. Next time I drive to the cost again with N/NO wind. [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) First day of November, blue skies, light breeze. Perfect to do some new light stuff to try. So time to my Warp F2011 8.6 to rig with my Platinum 215 and a few 60 cm fins test. There was little wind, could planing, but at times it was on my toes, later took the wind something. Sailing felt nice light, boom good thin. 3 Fins hazards: Drake R13 60 cm, C3 D2 60 cm and Select Ultra 60 cm. Wind was light today, but it was nice and warm, perfect test day. Warp like it well. About the fins I am not out yet, I need more testing. [Read...]
