05 June 2021: Light wind and chop

Sunday 06 June 2021

Wind WNW, and not so strong: best spot: Blokkenpier, from there along the beach to the kite spot. Sailed the iSonic 117 with S-Type 7.3 and SL-X 43cm. After every gybe, it was bobbing. Waiting for a gust and then a couple of pumps to get planing. Hopefully helped by a wave. Once planing I could usually plane the whole length of the beach. Very long runs. It was tiring sailing, the chop/waves and also a lot of pumping to get planing. Temperature was quite good but unfortunately no sun at all. Wind was not as strong as predicted, but still a nice session. [Read...]

09 May 2021: Wonderfully warm, but gusty

Saterday 29 May 2021

Wind predicted from the south, sunny and warm. Sailed the big kit: iSonic 117 with S-Type 8.3 and SL-P 48cm. With southerly winds, you need to get upwind to have more space and a bit more free wind. Once past the surf centre, long stretches, could be sailed along the sandbank and the island. Sailed most of the time with Jeroen. In the harder gusts I really had to give more outhaul and the 48cm was really too big. But most of the time the fin made it very easy to get planing. Wind was gusty and was gone too soon, but the temperature was lovely, winter wetsuit was too hot. Nice day. [Read...]

08 May 2021: All afternoon rain

Thursday 27 May 2021

The wind was south-east and rain all day. Started with iSonic 117 and S-Type 7.3 and SLX 43cm. Wind was a bit gusty, but given the direction not too bad. Everyone was sailing in the narrow part, so quite busy and paying close attention. The wind increased so tried the SLX 41cm. Wind increased more, a smaller set had to be possible. FSW 102 with Banzai 6.0 and MFC 29cm. Good choice, light set, much easier in the chop. Almost ripped the strap of the harness. Despite the rain, despite the south east wind, still a very nice afternoon, not really cold. [Read...]
