Nice wind at the forecast for today!! Because Steps couldnt get himself excused from work I decided to try Scheveningen, so I contacted Jacco.

At noon I took off from work and the ride only took 20 minutes. Jacco wasn't there jet, so I did a check on the waterline. The wind didn't seem to be as strong as thelive measurements where showing, the tide was upcomming, so decided to rigg the bigger sail, the 4,7.

On the water it was clear to me that the wind was stronger then I though. So it was almost overpower, heavy, but not so much that I couldn't hold it. The waves where comparable with the shorebreak at Ouddorp and nice line for waverides, wich I didn't do because I was almost overpowered. The current was less.

Made some nice jumps, one really big one on a big wave (between 2-2,5 metres)

Because it was so heavy for me I had some rest times between the sailing and al together I have been on the water for about 1,5 hour. Pretty tired now :)

Nice first session!!! Ad nice to have met Jacco!!

Thanks! Ook dat was de 1ste keer (in de mast), vind ze ook wel grappig, helemaal bij backloops en tabletops denk ik (gaan we nog zien) en volgens mij als je een mooie bottumturn met een laag zeil doet is het ook wel gaaf!
