(machine translated in 2023) Windsurfing.nl meeting 2008

First day of the windsurfing.nl meeting 2008
Reasonable day, wind was too south for the grevelingendam, even on the boat ramp. I would have preferred to drive to the Kabbelaarsbank or the Punt, but I was really too late for that.

After some hanging out on the side, I didn't really feel like it yet because you didn't feel any wind at all on the side, just rigged up. After a short hesitation started with S-Type and Trans-Am 6.0 water was flat so the Skate or a Wave sail had no added value. Nice sailing, but after an hour the wind fell away. I was close to the shore, so immediately stopped. After a bit of chatting, everyone went to get rid of them. I still wanted to sail, but on the water it looked very windless. After half an hour when most of them had been cleaned up, there seemed to be some gusts. I hit the water and indeed: WIND! After half an hour sometimes even hard. Was alone now. After an hour I thought it was enough and I also stopped. All the forum goers had already gone to the campsite.
