(machine translated in 2023) Little wind
The wind was already little predicted, but I did not expect that I could hardly plan with my 9.5.
After chatting on the side, I set it up. I went out of the bay planing. But barely got into plane after the gybe.
With some pumping it just managed to plan, but fell silent halfway back. Tried again but was really so little wind that I was in plane and I had a wave/swell on I had to fall out of plane. Went to the side to wait.

A lot of people were already taking off their suits on rigging. I saw another shower coming and was hoping for wind. Went up the water, and sure enough there came the wind. Directly from 6 knots, I did not plan towards 15 knots and later even harder gusts. Outhaul immediately naa max pulled, and went to the side to put downhaul on max as well. Kite! What a feeling, a lot of pulling power, sailing very high and then very spacious. Speed was good, but just had too much pressure and not the control for very fast runs. After 30 minutes everything was over and the wind was gone. Stop and go home.

  (machine translated in 2023) There was actually too little wind. For planting, the Drake was on the small side. During the shower, the sail was really too big. Could only be on the wind or hold. Otherwise, I couldn't keep the sail and keep the board on the water.
