(machine translated in 2018) Today a little more wind than predicted yesterday, and we got even more. All races with Warp 7.0 on the iSonic 101 hazards. Usually went very well, only the first buoy was exactly is very high swell, which just style was around the buoy. I'm one myself but 1 x cases, but by planing is me there not/hardly successful. There were always far less experienced surfers, but also some toppers. Rest of the course was a lot easier and here and there even very flat. The last 2 I have the preliminary round eliminations not dangers, only the losers final, I was too tired to all races to sail. It was a nice day, relatively constant wind, full count Sun, beautiful matches. Deadly tiring. [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) Beautiful weather, East wind predicted. It was pressure, many NK participants present. Started with Warp 7.8, but who was actually too small. So put on a GT85. It was not until the first break time to rig the 8.6.2nd elimination: Finally the necessary pressure, though it was still minimal. Maybe the 9.5. Could planing, but came ever speed too short. Not a bad day, little gusty wind and bad material choice. Maybe my GT85 yet not suitable for the Goldfleet, come speed too short, yet but even looking for something nieuwers? [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) 2nd day NK lauwersmeer, first day had no wind. It was Course Race, so I was allowed again with the technos. I expected little wind, so the Simmer Race LE 9.0 getting caught. Start was 3 kilometres away. Race with the speedboat to the start line, just not won 5 Races hazards: severe conditions. Technos planeerde constant, so not to keep downwind and upwind beautiful fight. Upwind often pushing against the mast hand, overpowered! With 18 a 20 knots was the weather for slalom, why we sail than course race? [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) NW predicted, especially on the coast good wind. So drove to sea. Was a good breeze on the dam. FSW 84 Pro with the Ice 5.3 getting caught. On the water, the wind against. Were big wind holes in the wind. Sometimes delicious. Larger board packed so I less would sink. Thus much gijpjes in the waves. Good weather, little gusty wind, had better be a bigger sailing. [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) End of the afternoon and evening wind. Beautiful evening to check out the Quad to test properly. When the flood came, the shore-break, very long wall of 1 meter high that broke on the beach. Not fine, 1 x through it and then remain on the water as long as possible. Started with the JP FSW 5.3 84 and Ice sailing on the large side, had been small. Then the Quad 81 to compare. Now with a lot of wind and swell, no steep waves. Altitude does ie well, though it feels weird. Half wind didn't feel relaxed. Golf afrijdend very great: just a skateboard. Board is not loose on, is also not easy. The JP FSW caught 84 to compare: finer. Fun night, heavy almost impossible shore-break. Quad is sold. Another seal. [Read...]

(machine translated in 2018) Finally some Grevelingendam. GT85 with Warp 8.6 dangers, ran good came out speed too short. Many on jibes practiced: first in the foot straps, then pick up, get used ff but you're faster on speed, and more control. It was nice and again, burnt head: Note to self: mold release! Many people complained about gusty wind. I had hardly any. [Read...]
