Hans Kreisel contacted me and asked me to come to West Kirby with him. I hasitated a bit because we only had 1 day. I'm glad we went!


After a 12 hour journey we arrived in West Kirby. The wind was houling already, so we rigged our smallest sails. I rigged my Severne Reflex II 5.6 and used my Starboard W44 2011 with a C3 Slingshot 21. In the morning i needed some time to get used to the spot, but my speeds went up and up. Jacques and Hans were a lot faster a that time. In the afternoon i found the WK-speedbutton. In one hour time i managed to do an average of 86.16 km/h (46.52 knots) and was faster then Hans and Jacques. Hans broke his board so he wasn't able to fight back. Jacques was very tired but somehow found new energy and managed to do some good runs. My energy was gone so i wasn't able to battle anymore. In the end Jacques was a little faster. Neverthelss i'm very stoked about my new personel speedrecords!!


My equippement was working just perfect. The Reflex II sails have such a huge range wich was very convenient in the gusty conditions. I was in full control all day. All in all the fasted day so far, but something tells me that this isn't the limit for me yet!


The people at WK were very friendly and helpfull, thank you for your hospitality. I hope to be there again.
