Used 3 boards, 2 sails and 4 fins today... The wind came very late, so started with a 20 yers old Simmer SC2 10.0 and my JP Supersport 136 with standard JP 46 fin. I was hoping to reach 50 one day with that 10.0, but managed to get a 53 max on the dial !! Very happy because the sail has no leech at all (used 6cm more downhaul...). Felt a bit like BIG Ed, but then 20 kmph slower ;-).Â
Changed to 7.8 and S10 43, later to my F113 with S07 39. When I reached speeds close to 60, I changed to my F89 with 7.8 and Select Crossfire 31. Always happy to sail that combo: Wind was a bit light from time to time, but that's when being lightweight becomes an advantage :-) Found 2 nice gusts...didn't find the other ones...
It was a nice sunny day with Paul and a few others. I hope i can keep windsurfing for the rest of my life...really love it every time again
