There was quite a lot of wind predicted, last days the forecast only increased. And then also a weekend with NK/BK and celebrating 40 years of surfing in the Netherlands: Bring it on.
I was a bit late, heard over the phone that Formula would be sailed, so no official race for me. Fortunately, it was not busy at all for a NK/BK weekend, at 11:00 I could still park at the Roundabout on the water.
An amateur slalom competition was to be held, but that too was cancelled. So a day off sailing.

iSonic 111 - RAM F9 8.4
Wind didn't seem too strong, but there was still wind, and since Martijn only has max 7.8, I chose my iSonic, otherwise he wouldn't be able to keep up at all. When the wind was there it was fun, but often bobbing because the wind fell away.

F2 FX III 100 - R-Type 9.5
Martijn wanted to stop because he was too small with 7.8. I wanted to take my GT85, but decided to take the Formula with 9.5, then Martijn could go on the water with my RAM 8.4 and GT85. Already wanted to sell the Formula, but got the tip to try with a smaller sail than the 11.0, so then the R-Type 9.5 on it. Wanted to get the 70cm R13, but it didn't fit well. So then the 65cm underneath. Sailed nicely, easier than with the 11.0. Unfortunately, it ended with the bolt of the tendon of the baseplate breaking, fortunately in the shallows so walk back a bit and not swim courts.

GT85 - R-Type 9.5
Delicious. Sailed really well: That formula goes out the door! The GT85 sails so much easier. Sailing another rake after Ingmar, couldn't keep up with him, but didn't miss any height. Downwind is the GT85 is much finer. When I wanted to stop I took the entrance at the restaurant. I thought I was sailing in the middle and that it would be deep enough there. NO. Clap, I in knee deep water. Was afraid of the fin box, looked there first, everything seemed whole. Then the nose: Thick tear. Went to the shore with the nose out of the water.

Not my best day, gusty wind and then a Baseplate broken and a 42cm crack in my GT85. I have something to do at home again.
