Windsurfing.nl Grevelingenmeeting
It was meeting again, there was a bit of wind predicted so off I went. Nice sun and a light south breeze.
After chatting on the side for about 2 hours, I got rigged, there was plenty of wind. Only South, so tightly offshore.

9.5 seemed too big, so the Daytona 8.3 rigged up to the GT85.
Bobbing out of the bay and immediately clearing a little further into the water, from the side the wind would be better. Halfway through the grevelingen (1 km from the side) from the windmills to the island and back (3.5 km per rak), and that a number of times, good long distance training for tomorrow's race. Especially near the eilenad the wind was just strong and the waves high and steep, 1x even sailed a long way past the island (5.2 km).
With such long rakes, an hour record with the GT85 was of course not that difficult.
If the wind had been more constant it would certainly have been a lot higher.

Nice sailing, only awkward with that off-shore wind.
