Faaarkkkkk,....what a great day at Horst. Conditions were gruelling at times. Just as I got of the water the wind backed off a little. Serge and I had just about the same speeds when we checked. I missed out on a bit more "normal" condition so I went onto the water a little later to catch up speed with Michel and Serge.

Serge and I delivberately took the smallest speedboard in anticipation of the weedy season. I can tell was definitely NOT speedboard weather haha.

In the early afternoon hard-core conditions I set a 1 second peak of over 40 knots which was just insanely quick (at least for my limited skills) and I could have gone faster as a gust clearly over 45 knots sweeped across the water. Just as I went into the line I was simply blasted out of the straps and the well known pebble crash I know from my past and thus younger hard-core racing days gave access to some memories....ahhhh...this is how I did it back then. I am getting fitter, lighter and faster. 

After 7 years fighing to find justice for taking my farm slowly but steadily the sun is starting to shine again both businesswise and mentally. This after a very tough time in which I nearly followed in Peter Volwater's footsteps. I simply couldn't cope anymore with life. It turns out Greentech and hardcore training on the bike and in the woods are my saviours to not only get physically but also mentally well again.

Mann.....the MK2 22 is a killer underneath the CA44 in open water hard-core conditions. 

Serge, Michel...nice sailing mates. Michel 6.3. Serge 5.6. Yourstruly 5.0. Funny fact.
