(machine translated in 2023) Light Weather Training
Waning winds were predicted, and they came.
I was at the water early for my doing. Arno, Hans and Jeroen (DonLimas) were already setting up.
They were all setting up max: 7.7 to 8.0. With the wind that was there at the time, that would just be possible. I didn't even hesitate and immediately rigged the R-Type. Turned out to have forgotten my 510cm mast. Fortunately, the Xtender was added and so the 490cm mast was packed with the Xtender.

When I wanted to walk into the water, Jeroen had just left. He gets on (7.7m) and plans away. I was startled for a moment. If that's possible, 9.5 might be big. Then play Formula, only sail high and spacious. Jeroen, however, appeared to have caught a flurry. He fell silent again in front of the shop.
All the time formula training done. Chosen above buoy and walk as well as possible tack and height and then return as wide as possible. There were also some germans with formula boards who occasionally sailed pieces. In terms of speed I lost it, in terms of height walking as well. But when the wind completely disappeared, I was almost always the first to leave.

By half past 1 the wind became very weak. Sometimes with difficulty planing a little, but often bobbing. So I stopped. Delicious. Because of the many pumps nice and tired. Good training.

Jurjen and Claudia were there too but didn't get on the shelf anymore.


Present: Arno (Mr. Q), Hans (Hansie), Jeroen (DonLimas)

10:45 2 hour Wind: S/SE 6/14 kts
Board: AHD GT 85 - Deboichet R12 M 64cm
Sail: North R-Type 9.5 - North Viper 75 490cm - Unifiber Freerace/Slalom 220-280
  (machine translated in 2023) For the first time the 9.5 rigged on the 490 mast with the North XTender.
The loose leech seems better. The depth of the abdomen in the sail also more gradual.
Set ran well, could reasonably come along with the formula surfers, planing just as well if not better, only with height walking I don't make it. The R-Type 9.5 doesn't feel big or bulky on this board at all. delicious.
