(machine translated in 2023) And another day of surfing
3rd day in a row surfing, and that in November, rare, but after weeks hardly any wind very nice.
I had chosen to go surfing late, in the morning they kept SW and then 6 to 7 Bf. After 13:00 the wind would quickly turn to W / NW and decrease to 5 Bf. There are almost no spots where both wind directions are really nice. So-it-so it's not pleasant to be on the water when the wind is turning. So I decided to sail on the Grevelingendam after 13:00 when the wind had turned. That was a good choice. Wind was a little less than I had hoped, but the sun was still shining, and that's nice.

JP FSW 84 Pro with Ice 5.3
First time with the JP FreestyleWave 84 Pro. Started with my Ice 5.3. Most boys were still on the water with 4.7, but wind was predicted to decrease. After quick rigging and surfing suit put on the water. Wash full tank immediately. Wind increased considerably after a few raks around a shower. Shower was so heavy that I didn't see anything anymore and had to go to the side to take shelter. After the shower the wind started to decrease, at first it was still quite good, but later sailed with minimal trim. When I fell silent once, I immediately went to the shore for a larger sail.

JP FSW 84 Pro with Duke 5.9
I was quick to rig up my 5.9. But still, the wind was less than 15 minutes earlier. It was nice to sail for a while, but too soon it was minimal planing again, and my trapeze lines were actually too long for that.

In itself a good choice to wait until the wind had turned. Take it easy after 2 days of slalom stuff. Drove home satisfied. Winter should start now, I need a few days of rest.
