(machine translated in 2023) Start of a few days of strong wind, I had the afternoon free, so then to Zeeland 18 knots wind predicts, so that will be fine. Well not so, once arrived it turned out that it had hardly blown. So then max. rig up and we'll see. Nice and dry and warm.


14:00 1.5 hour Wind: S 6/14 kts
Board: Fanatic Bee 124 Ltd - Select Eagle L 43cm
Sail: Arrows Duell 8.6 - Arrows Ultimate Race 490cm - Arrows Ultimate Race 190-240
  (machine translated in 2023) Due to lack of wind, my father's 8.6 was rigged again (is still without 8 meters). After a few laps just not planing, the wind picks up enough to plan well. After half an hour I have to set the downhaul to max. pulling because with just the outhaul I can't trim the sail far enough. The wind remains strong enough, after a lot of hesitation I went to the side for my 6.8. A bit smaller, so finer and better to trim.
15:30 1 hour Wind: S 8/15 kts
Board: Fanatic Bee 124 Ltd - Hurricane SR 1 38cm
Sail: North Warp III 6.8 - North Viper Race 460cm - Arrows Ultimate Race 190-240
  (machine translated in 2023) The 6.8 only seems just big enough. But certainly in the gusts I can now give the bee a lot of spurs. Unfortunately, the win quickly collapses again and it's bobbing back to the side. End of surf day. Not really super.
