Session with mixed feelings..
First time in a long time I got the chance to come over to La Franqui. So I was stoked to be here, but getting annoying news at the first day already, I needed to drive back the next day to the office ruined my positive energy. Bad thing is that my speedbuddies their speedtrip also came to an abrupt end because of me. Sorry guys...
So got on the water with an unpleasant feeling that had a bad influence on my sailing, didn’t get the right mix between zen and focus and not really enjoying myself… took me a few hours and some help of my friends to get my mind in the right place and my concentration on the sailing as it should, and get a bit of enjoyment out of it.
Resulting in three great runs, but a crash which took me a lot off effort getting back to the shoreline took away a lot of my energy and forced me to call it a day.
So still mixed feelings about the session. Super happy with these three great runs, but disappointed I didn’t have a more relaxed weekend that would have enabled me to do more of these runs and most of all… enjoy it more.
So looking forward to sail the small gear again, enjoy it to max as it should, and get those five… or more…great runs in a row!
First time also on an asy fin, which really makes some deference on high speed… faster and more reliable, feels great. The Fanatic Falcon Speed 44 was super easy to sail, and the Neil Pryde Racing EVO6 gave me solid power and control too… so very pleased with my gear.
I don’t know if the other guy’s share the same “sensation” but getting in the mid or high 80km/h in the chop, it seems the vision always gets blurred.. don’t know if I need to get my eyes checked or if this is “normal”
Anyhow, now I know… when I don’t see clearly where I’m going… its becoming fast :-D
Congrats to everybody who sailed there PB’s and to everybody mastering these conditions.
Special thanks to the friends who gave me a chin up after the frustrating news to head back.
And special congrats to my young buddy Dennis de Pauw who showed some great sailing and progression again!
