Severne 7.0 speeeeed

Today while driving I thought lets do something crazy, walk almost 4km with 7.0 in the mud for a speedsession, would be interesting for sure. I was convinced it would be a mediocre session, and better do something new on such days is my vision. Result is more than I would ever wished for, I did a faster run on my 7.0 than I ever did before with such a big sail. Even my fastest 6.2 10sec run doesn't come close:

5.0____78,43km/h
5.1____72,49km/h
5.5____80,17km/h
5.6____82,28km/h
5.8____73,11km/h
6.2____71,34km/h
6.7____69,32km/h
7.0____75,38km/h

Sorry the speed is not in knots, don't want to calculate it right now.

Funny thing about today is there was no lead in my weightvest, only 4 fins. Soo I bothered to measure my total weight today, plus summer shortarm wetsuit, plus weightvest (including 4 fins), plus some small stuff, plus seatharnass ===> 86kg. I seem to have lost some weight again lastest sessions :(. Time to eat! Good news for me and some other, it is really getting easier to go fast even if your not that heavy. Couldn't believe almost being able to match Jurjen vd Noord his extreme fast 7.0 10sec runs. The big gear does feel a bit draggy, still the numbers on my GPS made me satisfied :).  Now 5x10seconds above 40kn with 7.0 on a bit more constant day!!

Conditions were not perfect, also not bad, rather gusty for the Brace. The spot is changing fast, it has been to long ago when I was speeding here. Might be faster nowadays, at least it was flat considering the winddirection, windstrenght, etc...

Congrats for Robert Seinen, he pushed again a fast run!!! I saw it was fast :), a bit faster than me.
