Just some day in august, the 18th 2013 we went for a downwinder, that with my surfbuddy Robin B.
In the early morning we both arrived with 2 cars in IJmuiden. We dropped one car at the parking and together in one car we drove back to Zandvoort.
It was quite windy in the beginning but the forecast said the wind was going to decrease fast. At the end of the morning the wind would be almost gone. So we had to hurry!! We didnt wanted to get stuck halfway.
I didnt need big fins, because it was all downwind. i placed my small 2x Xtwins 16.5 and center 14.5cm underneeth. My fave finset up so far.
The Zandvoort Locals Bart Jan and Jeroen were also rigging their brand new Hotsails, Quad and the 3 batten sail from Kauli Seadi
Laid back cruising down the line. Dakine waterman backpack 2Liter liquid.#notgoingtogetthirsty
Keep on turning
Next time we are going to do a longer run. Probably something like Noordwijk -IJmuiden.
2.5 times as far, as the trip we did today. Who's dares to join? Let me know!
My GPS gave a distance results of 30 kilometers. A nice sunny day it was :-)
PS: Anytime soon Boardkings.com will organize a downwinder. We will go with a larger group of people and ofcourse with the BBQ at the end/finish. Stay tuned!
