(machine translated in 2018) Wind forecast was already a few days super: WNW 20 to 30 knots. There was rain predicts, but who remained happy just on the other side of the water, thus outside of a single bit of drizzle, we held it dry. Very much had fun today on the water with friends, many dangers, a lot of crazy things done, very much. Dangers and problems really until I could no longer was able to hold on any longer, gybjes my boom went awry: very satisfied stopped. You have from those days: SUPER! [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) Yesterday is Amy Winehouse died. I think everyone saw it for a long time to come, but yesterday is they died on 27 years of age. If she has stretched until they are 27 or that it was pure coincidence is we'll never know. 27 is the age for an artist to die. Many artists went for her. But the most famous are known as the Club of 27:-Brian Jones-Jimi Hendrix-Janis Joplin-Jim Morrison-Kurt CobainAmy was good, but if they are, with only 2 hits and 1 famous album to this list would be allowed to join?

Chosen for the Kabbelaarsbank, there is always someone and would also still longer blow than on Herkingen. I wouldn't have much time, so just wanted to in full sail, nice moment to have for an hour record. All the other times I had coincidentally an hour record. It was quiet on the water, life, flatter water, fewer people in the way. [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) Warm weather in the beginning but no wind, wind but also a lot of rain later. For different reasons wanted some to the Oister dam, since no bad swim is took me, wind direction was well predicted.

(machine translated in 2018) There was pretty much wind predicted, last days took the prediction only increases. And a weekend with NK/BK and celebrating 40 years surfing in Netherlands: bring it on.
