16 Mei 2019: Afternoon turning winds

sunday 19 may 2019

Went sailing with the slalom competition guys at Oostvoornse Meer. Wind direction NNE, which is not at all favourable. Used iSonic 127 with Warp 9.0 and Z-Fins 46cm. Used a Power XT 2.0 for the first time: impressed. Wind was extremely gusty and turned a lot. Not a very nice session. Worked on the trim of the 9.0 a bit. Not really nice sailing, but instructive.

11 Mei 2019: Competition Training

tuesday 14 may 2019

Wind predicted: 14 to 18 knots, good wind for slalom training. Used iSonic 117 with Warp 8.0 and SL-X 43cm. Started with 5 practice starts. Then a total of 10 practice races. Had a collision with Coen, luckely no damage. With 16 people on the start line it is difficult to start well, couple of on-the-mark starts, few over-earlies, halve of the starts bad. [Read...]

08 Mei 2019: Delicious Evening Session

friday 10 may 2019

After 4 hours it would become dry and the wind turn to SW and increase. Started on the Blokkendam with Single Thruster 99 and Ice 5.3, not the right decision. Quick to Kabberlaarsbank for some slalom: iSonic 127 with Warp 8.0 and SL-X 43cm. Nice possibility to test the SL-X 43cm. Wind was gusty, but good to test the whole wind range. Good session, the sun was shining all evening. [Read...]
