I missed out on one of the big days of speedsurfing history is the least I can say, It was the opportunity to get my Belgian record back after nearly 4 weeks of waiting. I didn't sail the day before to save energy for D-day. My first (and only) testrun of the day ,44,57kts/500m videotimed (with a board and fin I didn't use so far) ended with a visit to the state hospital. My fin cut me to the bone (ankle) after a crash in the shallow finish. A few meters before that crash, in the finishzone, I had a peekspeed of 85,6km/h. Last night I had dinner with my roommates who pushed, all but one, their (3) national records. Massive respect to speedbuddy Christian, He did 50,20kts average, less then a week after his 50th birthday.
