(machine translated in 2023) Day 40: Grey cold Sunday afternoon and little wind
At 13 degrees it wasn't really hot, grey sky, but no wind.
My plan was to drive to Kabbelaarsbank, on the way to Zeeland I noticed how much wind there was.
On the Grevelingendam there was planning, so stopped for a while, heard that 7.5 was good, so stayed on the Grevelingendam.

When I got on it was bobbing, even to a long way on the big water there was no wind. When the wind returned, it was only gusts: 500 meters planing, 500 meters bobbing. Unfortunately, that bobbing takes much longer than planing. In the gusts it felt wonderful. Beyond that, it was nothing. After an hour I went to the side for a sandwich and a larger set.

Wind still seemed weining, so not the 8.6 caught, but immediately 9.5.
Direct planing, in gusts even large, but wonderful to just plan all the time. On the way I wanted to blow my nose, but red snot came out: Nosebleed, fortunately not very bad and before I was near the side again it seemed to have stopped. Still a bit of danger, but thought it was better to stop quickly.

It was grey, fresh and the wind was disappointing. Next time I will continue to the coast with N/NE wind.

  (machine translated in 2023) Little wind for this set, in the gusts it just went, but was too much bobbing. Put more downhaul on the 7.8 than the first time. Cambers just flipped.
