(machine translated in 2023) F2 Speedchallenge. On arrival there had just been a heavy shower with strong gusts of wind. Wind was almost completely gone. After some doubt about rigging sail but started with the T-Force 5.9 so that possibly 6.8 would still be possible. Wind was only so strong that I soon started sailing much smaller.


13:45 0.75 hour Wind: SW 18/28 kts

Sail: Arrows T-Force 5.9 - Arrows Ultimate Race 430cm - North X-Composite M
  (machine translated in 2023) On the shore there seemed to be no wind, on the water the gusts were super strong. Had little control. Water was not flat enough for high speeds and the T-Force was only able to hold in strong winds ever since. But then it went so fast.. I had also moved the foot straps 2 positions to the back, maybe that was why I had so little control. Try again soon. 55 km/h on the Navman was my max.
15:00 1.5 hour Wind: SW 20/30 kts

Sail: North Dr.X 4.7 - North XC60 400cm - North Progression Comp A+
  (machine translated in 2023) 4.7 soon turned out to be too big. But on max trim I could sail with it reasonably. I'm also starting to like the FSW better and better. LOTS of control. Have had the GPS with me. And it went very fast. Actually wanted to go 3.7 or 4.2 on rigging, but Mijke was there and wanted to go home earlier so I stopped.
