Defi heat 2. Great race with I guess top 50 result

Défi manche 2. 

Very bad start and ok race, finished in 46min.
Around 100-120 place.

Défi manche 3.

Again not a good start, but great race with great gibes. Finished in 44min, had great fun. This combo is awesome.

Think about 70-90th place.

Super nice 3rd race, was fast and had a good start. 3rd on the 1st mark righht after Warembourg. Had to jump on the way back due to seaweed, catapulted 2x. Irgendwas is auch immer. Super Topspeed in the race of 39.13 kn. Good 500 m.

Defi heat 3.

 

Excellent race, good start, runs and gybes. around 30th place.

Manche nr. 4

Cancelled when I was at the first buoy, wind died.
Too bad because I had a good start this time.

See you next year DéfiWind!

 

2e vaardag op de DEFI 2018. Drie races gedaan waarvan de laatste werd afgeblazen. De moeilijke punten van de race waren de start en de gijp. Bij de start viel ik iedere keer stil en bij de boeien ging het ook niet heel soepel door de enorme windgaten, dan heb ik het gewicht even niet ee ;). Maar echt een top evenement gehad. Ben geeindigd op de 83 plaats en daar ben ik heel blij mee :)

Volgend jaar weer..

3 Defi races op 1 dag.
1e race gevaren met Isonic 90 en Loft Speed Blade 5.6
2e race gevaren met Kode 78 en Blade 4.7
3e race gevaren met Isonic 90 en Loft Speed Blade 5.6 - race afgebroken vanwege onweer

Nice results Dennis DP. Next year top 30!!!!

Horrible Start....at least a bit of speed

3 defi races. Speeds not that impressive by GPS standards but today I mostly stayed further out to sea, trying to go in a straigher line and get a better average speed over the 10k legs. Hard to know if it worked better or not for the race. Defintely the GPS speeds were better if I went into the beach and got a good speed run. Finished 13th overall though so not bad.

.

Defi wind wedstrijddag. Geweldige slalomsessies met 1300 andere windsurfers

Manche 4

Cancelled when I was at the first buoy, wind died.
Too bad because I had a good start this time.

See you next year DéfiWind!

 

Missed the start of the second Defi Wind heat of the day as they by some reason shortened the countdown to 45 minutes instead of one hour. So I was on the beach when the start signal sounded. Shit happens! :) So I went cruising along the beach north of the course instead. The wind is a lot weaker here but it was good fun alpha training anyway.

I´m such a noob ;) First time ever on this sail, overpowered and un-trimmed. I was totally drained of power after 5 minutes of the race. Did not make one single jibe. Yepp, noob it is. I really need to get back here next year to get a rematch!
