The next day...

43.68 kt max          PB     80.89 km/h max

Yesterday one or two runs showed that my set was fast. Adding some spacers, and the new Loftsails extention making it possible to trim the sails perfectly as I wanted, made the 5.1m² faster than the 5.6m². Finaly!

I used 6kg extra weight.+ 2liter water in the camelback made it 8kg extra to start with. Yesterday the wind dropped before I got a decent avg, today I was lucky!

Dirk and I were first to rig, after a while Jean-Marc came and he was first in the water. We followed soon. Just the 3 of us in good speed conditions. I managed to do 5 good runs in 1 hour, pr time!

After lunch Laurent joined us. It was magical, only 4 Loftsails Speed Blade's on the water in a hard tramontana up to 50kt. I Managed to better 2 runs after lunch in very difficult conditions,  and bring the avg to this point 40.68 kt- 75.33 km/h :) it felt completly in control.

From here on, I consider myself as a member of the 40kt club @GPS-Speedsurfing.com 

This was by far the best session I've sailed here, and not only in terms of speed, but being only 4 of us, brings a relaxed way of speedsailing and the company was great!

Tnx to http://www.surfrepair.nl/ for the great support!
