(machine translated in 2023) Finally good wind again
After weeks of no wind and cold, and before that only a cowardly breeze, finally SW again.
Still days off, so immediately took a day off. Wind would subside around 1 to 2 o'clock, so the goal was to be in zeeland early.
Unfortunately did not manage to be there at 10.00, was there just before 11.00. But if the wind was not too bad, I had to be able to sail for 1.5 to 2 hours. With this cold, more than enough.

I was hoping to sail with my new JP FSW 84 Pro. On arrival, the 2 boys who were already there appeared to sail with 7.0 and 7.6. And the 7.6 was Jay-Jay, over 100 pounds and a guy's tree. So I put the Warp 7.0 on the iSonic 111 (I didn't bring the 101 with me.)

iSonic 111, Warp F2009 and C3 Venom 38cm
After quick rigging put on my suit and go. Chosen for the Venom 38cm, first time with that fin. Waited a long time to test it. Would that make the iSonic 111 better to sail with the Warp 7.0? Yes, definitely better than with the SL2, control I think similar to the SL4, but less nervous, just much more reliable. Had no problems with the iSonic with gyben. Perhaps there is still hope after all. Try a few more times.

After 2 hours the wind completely disappeared. Sailed long enough. After some chatting, we got off and went home. If the forecasts come true, we will get 2 more days of wind this weekend.

It was nice to be back on the water. After a few weeks of rest, my body seemed a lot fitter. Gybes went damn well, speed was also delicious in the harder gusts. Delicious!
