(machine translated in 2023) Light weather raceboard training: Damage and Shame
Finally time and a bit of wind, perfect to do a few hours of light weather training.
I went sailing with my parents on Kabbelaarsbank and had dinner with them.

One Mistral sword is not the other
My father still has his old Mistral Malibu S, and he also has a sword, seemed like a handy sword as a hard weather heavy for my team. So his sword caught, seems same system, insert him into the Equipe, fits! And then the sword was stuck. Couldn't quite fold it in and out. And he certainly didn't want to get out. Oops! After a moment of looking and fiddling, no movement in it. Then disassemble the entire sword case. Very careful, but it worked, only a crack in the fastening strip of the sword case rubbers. So that but not reassembled. Sure enough, the Malibu S's lids are a lot closer together than the Equipe. Other than that, the sword looks the same. Never try again.Shame

Equipe with R-Type 9.5
There was little wind on the side, but further down the water there was definitely enough wind to plan. Jan was also fully in plane with Formula. The board didn't run very well. Without the sealing rubbers of the sword, a ditch of water came up through the sword case which clearly braked. Wonderful sailing, a lot of tacking and gybes practiced.

Back on the side I saw 2 cracks across the deck just before the Milstral logo. I don't think I fell at all. Although I have been on the nose once. Mmmm. That's going to be fixed.

Educational day, get a better feeling at the board, unfortunately damage dangers today, tomorrow take the Cat with you.

  (machine translated in 2023) Light weather training, without the rubber strips on the sword case, the board runs clearly less well. Outside of that discomfort, nice dangers, educational. Start getting better and better at my way/balance/feeling on the Equipe.
