The plan was to go to Da Curve and try to break the dutch hour record. Was not even thinking of the world record as the bar is raised high by Australian Brad and on Da Curve you have to gybe every 2 km. On the beach i decided to take the JP Speed 45 and to make some speed runs after i finished the hour attempt. When we arrived on Da Curve with the waterscooter Hans noticed my board was gone, we lost it somewhere. Tried to find it on open sea with the waterscooter but without succes, went back to the car and took my JP Speed 50 with 23cm fin. I forgot that i hide my iphone in the boardbag of this board, so i found it by back on the beach totally wet, its not working anymore;-(. If somebody called or apped me, i'm not there. My hour is a new Dutch record, but only 0,1 knots slower than the world record!
After the hour i did some runs but board and fin were to big to sail the high speeds Hans sailed today. Never expected to do 47 knots with this board and fin, so a little surprice. Marcel and Jeroen sailed a new personal best, well done.
If somebody (in Germany or Denmark;-)) finds a JP Speed 45 2013 with black JP footstraps, please let me know.
