(machine translated in 2023) Wonderful speed day at Herkingen, the corner was perpendicular to the dam, so not great, but with a nice sun and sometimes strong gusts it sometimes went quite fast. My cart had to go to the garages for a new wheel bearing, so could hardly take any stuff with me. Chosen to carry the S-Type with Daytona 6.6 and Warp 5.8. Wind seemed a bit soft on Herkingen on arrival, so Daytona rigged on minimum trim and my new Drake Slalom Pro 36cm underneath. In the beginning actually too little wind for speed surfing, could plan, but the speed stuck around 48 km / h. After some trimming, boom higher, mast slightly backwards finally 50km / h, but not really special yet. Wind luck picked up again, allowing me to trim the Daytona to just over max. Speed advanced rapidly, 53, 54 and 57 km/h. A run of max 59.9 km/h soon followed. However, wind decreased again, so that the runs hardly exceeded 54 km/h afterwards. After a little more than 2 hours I became very tired and got very thirsty. So off to the side. On my way to the side I meet Robke, chatting for a quarter of an hour, and then I went to the side and stopped. Nice day.


15:00 2.25 hour Wind: W/SW
Board: Starboard S-Type 104 - Drake Slalom Pro 36cm
Sail: North Daytona 6.6 - North Viper 75 460cm - HPL Slalom 177-238
  (machine translated in 2023) Set went well. I first had the Daytona on minimum trim so the sail is not super stable. But when the wind picked up the trim could go to max and then the sail was great. All the gybs went well, a lot of planning. The S-Type gave all the control and the Drake was good in height even in less wind. Very occasionally on a run with too little wind had a spinout. Max 59.9 km/h put on the GPS, unfortunately the 2 sec was lower and no higher than 60.
