27 September 2019: Finally the wind turned to SW

sunday 06 october 2019

Today the wind would turn to SW and increase considerably. In the morning the wind was still south and not strong. Started with the iSonic 101 with E-Type 6.6 and SL-X 36cm. In The beginning little wind, but increased so much that the E-Type was too large. Also used the Busca 34cm. In the harder wind sailed with the FreeWave 102 with Duke 5.9 and FreeWave 29cm untill that was also really too big. Too tired to get rig a smaller sail: stopped. Unfortunately this day only came at the end of the week, but that didn't make it any less fun. SW, Sun and nice wind, delicious. [Read...]

26 September 2019: Extremely gusty

monday 30 september 2019

Wind again south, seems not to want to turn southwest. On the shore it seemed almost no wind, started with iSonic 117 with S-Type SL 8.3 and SL-P 46cm. That was in the gusts too big in the windholes too small. Tried the 44cm SL-P: slightly better. Wind increased, iSonic 101 with E-Type 6.6 and SL-X 36cm. That was good in the hardest gusts. Then the: iSonic 117 with S-Type SL 7.3 and SL-P 42cm, that was the best today, but still a lot of standing still. These kind of days are rare in Zeeland. Even with this wind direction it is usually a whole lot better. [Read...]

The whole afternoon a lot of rain predicted. Before the rain sailed with the iSonic 117, S-Type SL 8.3 and Busca 46cm. Lots of variation in the wind, happy with the variable outhaul.
