Second day on La Franqui. In the morning the wind was 'light', only 20 knots, but picked up in the afternoon. However, we got a mixed bag of conditions: broad, square, strong and sometimes hardly any wind and on top of that some heavy swell. Despite all that I had more fun than yesterday and I could also improve on my speeds. Each time after I took a break I managed to improve on my worst runs until that time, so I'm satisfied with the end result in these wavy conditions (exciting!)

Gerlof offered me an asy fin to lend, which I used the entire day. The Sonntag X2W was rock steady and sailling upwind was nowhere near as challenging as I expected from an asy fin! Interesting...

Tomorrow will probably bring a little less wind, but we'll see how it goes. You never know what you're going to get here!
