First time Kraaijenbergse Plassen
Away with friends for the weekend, but storm in the Netherlands. Then you want to go surfing anyway. So went to the nearest spot: the Kraaijenbergse Plassen.
First time I went sailing on the Kraaijenbergse Plassen. It was a nice group of people on the water: 20 to 25 man/woman.
Started by asking the locals for more info about the water and the wind. Most were using around 6.0 camberless sails, some smaller, some 7.0 slalom.

iSonic 101 with Crossride 6.6 and SL-X 36cm
Close to shore, first 10 meters almost no wind, so difficult to get away.
Wind was, as expected on an inland lake: on/off. So often standing still, but also often planing.
Water pretty flat, so just let board run loose, easy jibing. When I failed to do a planing jibe, wind had dropped, or sailed into a windhole.
Some of the gusts were very hard, but never so long or hard that I couldn't sail.
A couple of guys were using slalom stuff, so tried to stay ahead of them, that sometimes succesfull, with jibe I was clearly better.
Unfortunately, John Munten arrived when I was derigging.

Difficult conditions, but still nice sailing.
Nice to have seen John, Freek and Chris again.

12:00 2 hour Wind: SW 1/25 kts
Board: Starboard iSonic 101 - Sonntag SL-X 36cm
Sail: North Crossride 6.6 - North Platinum(11) 460 - AL360 E3 Carbon 180-230
  Best set for this very gusty wind. Just enough volume to not sink when wind was gone. Just a bit too big for the hardest gusts, but very often just nice sailing. Controle, speed and great gybing.
