In the beginning around 3:30 p.m. it was blowing hard enough and right away i did my fastest runs. shortly after the wind was more off then on.
Walked a lot .. When it began to rain, I used the harder gusts to go upwind.. instead of further downwind.. because i already was far enough.
Too bad, my fifth run, which brings my average down. For the first time i been sailing with a slingshot Fin. I had 2 spinouts today, crashed with 65kmh. The second spinout I could recover.
Oh well, i been planing today. But Wijk aan Zee was subsequently been a better choice for today. Had actually expected more of this speedsession.
Cant wait to try out my other C3 Slingshotsizes 21-25cm.
