From about 11 to 12 good east wind forecasted, in combination with sun. Sailed with the S-Type SL 8.3 and iSonic 117. The weather was lovely, nice sun. Wind was a bit gusty. But for east wind with nowadays the windmills it was not at all disappointing: enjoyed. [Read...]

Prediction: around 3 o'clock the wind would become perfect Sailed with Goya Banzai 6.0 and JP FSW 102. Floating, a lot of floating. Until 17:00 the wind turned direction and switched on. It was a long wait for the real wind. But that 1.5 hours wind and sun made up for a lot. [Read...]

Slightly less wind day yesterday and also from the wrong direction: W/NW, so small chance of good races. Biggest set: S-Type 8.3 and isonic 117. 4 races. Too little wind for my equipment, but still not a really bad result. It was wonderfully sunny and warm. For so little wind I did not too bad. [Read...]

The afternoon before Dam-X: slalom start training. Starting line, and 2 buoys: improve start timing, round the first mark, back to the start for another round. Wind minimal, sailed with S-Type SL, iSonic 117 and Busca 46cm. Starts started to improve again. Wind minimal, not cold at all. [Read...]

WNW wind, 20 to 25 knots predicted. Perfect for the Grevelingendam. Sailed with the E-Type 6.6 and iSonic 101. First time since more then a year that I had sailed with this set, took some time find the right trim. Unfortunately, the wind that had been predicted did not come. But it was good to sail the slalom board again, and try to sail as fast as possible. Definitely a good training for Dam-X next week. [Read...]

Increasing wind forecast all day, finally SW again. Aimed to be in Zeeland at the end of the afternoon, when the wind would exceed 20 knots. Sailed with the Banzai 6.0 and JP FSW 102. Wind seemed a bit minimal for a 6.0, but with increasing wind that should only take some time before the sail should be big enough. Unfortunately, the wind direction stayed/was too south. It was still quite warm, sumer wetsuit. But wind was a bit disappointing. prediction was much better. [Read...]
