Nice but rainy day at sea
The wind was less predicted than last week. On arrival it hardly seemed to blow and very dark sky arrived. Eaten in the camper until the shower was over. Then go up rigs. 4.7 on the FSW 84. I was fast and one of the first on the water.
Already on the side I noticed that the heaving was higher than last week and also less messy. It was getting on and planning. After a bit of adjusting the foot straps and trapeze strings was just great sailing. Only those 3 showers of which 1 with hail were less.
Sometimes the wind was a little less, then with the Power XT back to min-trim and if the weather was hard then again to max-trim.
Jumped a lot, with links for certainly not my best side, but I was able to practice well. Sometimes they were beautiful jumps themselves, sometimes unstable in the air or very hard landings. Sailing back in, the waves were fun to play with a bit. I've found a new way to ride a wave radically fast backwinded. Unfortunately, I have to get used to that so much that I couldn't keep up with my board a number of times.

Alex and Anita were also there, cozy. De Ouwe, local of Brouwersdam Noord, (Henk) was of course also there.
