06 October 2013: GPA 2013: No Wind

monday 07 october 2013

(machine translated in 2018) What a disappointment, there was already afraid of: no wind: Really nothing. The wind was really silent, so CAT 380 with the Simmer LE Race 9.0 rigged in minimal trim. It was so calm that I could not even get the starting line. No pressure. Fortunately it was with no wind also start for tricky and there was a massive false start. At the 2nd start attempt I was sitting pretty. But yes, try yet again to get away without wind. After fifteen minutes or so I was so fed up. Sailing on the back, with legs sailing in balance, out of the water, paddling with the sword. That went a lot faster. The SUPs making those pictures went faster: I stop there with it, am quiet paddling back to the side. [Read...]

29 September 2013: Regiocup Zuid: Day 2: Though

monday 30 september 2013

(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...]

28 September 2013: Regiocup Zuid: Day 1

sunday 29 september 2013

(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...]

September 22, 2013: NK Lauwersmeer: Raceboard

monday 23 september 2013

(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...]

11 may 2013: Eilanden Race

monday 13 may 2013

The infamous Eilanden race on the program, this year few participants. Sailed all day with GT85, R-Type 9.5 and Deboichet 65cm. Eventually become 1st in the slalom class (<85cm), 5th overall. It was though, challenging. Too bad I cracked the nose of the GT85, nice job for this week to fix. [Read...]
