(machine translated in 2018) I was already on Friday to the lauwersmeer, chance to go. No/hardly any wind so my Race board: CAT 380 with R-Type 9.5 rigged and in the rain a good round of dangers about the lauwersmeer. It seems from the side smaller than on the map. There are a lot of islands in the Lake that is sure during a game in the way leaving little possibilities in terms of race track. Good to here to have done. [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) My first GPA, a famous match with many participants, 2 a 3 laps on the Westeinderplassen. There was good weather predicted, Sun, wind (gusty) and still warm. Jerome would use my new CAT 380, he has a lot more competition experience on racing boards. I took my trusted Team with 9.5 R-Type, went pretty good, knew the water not not tactically and made the best choices. Have fun match dangers, but certainly had higher may end up. After the game for the first time itself on my CAT 380, what a difference. [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) Minimal wind predicted: 12 a 14 knots just enough for slalom. Heats 1 to 3: not the best starts, and wrong vin, 56 cm gave too little elevator, so speed too low. Heats 4 through 7: Starts went better and speed too, only the top 4 I could really not. Heats 8 t/m 10:8th heat just went well again. 9th too late at the start. 10th: false start. It was a lovely day, was not top fit by a touch of the flu last week. Starts better, but jibes went top, not cases and almost everything doorgeplaneerd. [Read...]
