(machine translated in 2023) Nice and relaxed freeriding
Today was most wind forecast of the week, so this day taken off.
I first drove to the Punt to see if there were other surfers there, I like to sail the Punt, but I don't just go on the water.
Luckily there were reasonable surfers on the Punt, so put my car away there.
Wind seemed to be disappointing, after a drink and measuring the wind decided not to rig too small.
After weeks of training and only slalom, I felt like cruising just relaxed.
S-Type 104 with Duke 6.7 and Eagle 35cm
Because it didn't seem to blow much, I caught my Duke 6.7. After quickly rigged, the GoPro mounted to do some filming, and hit the water.
After a bit of trimming, mast foot forward and boom up it felt nice.
Sailed around for a few hours. Wind was often on the hard side, but sometimes also away for a while.
Have used the GoPro with Flymount from different points of view.
Video to follow.
It was nice to just cruise around again.

Nice and relaxed. Fin sometimes on the small side when the wind was less, but when it was a little windy it was lovely.
