Today I went buying a new harnass (since my others are broken or bended). At the Amstelmeer I saw "the Brace wind direction was there". Also a lot more wind than expected.
Soo managed to get Peter and Marcel (living close to the spot) to go sail with me. The choise for W54 was easy, this was the only speedboard in the car. Sometimes, you just have to go with the flow, today it came together and I was lucky to see this in time.
On the water the speed increased every run. I started with 37kn run and ended with 42kn run. Still there is even more to come for the W54, I used a damaged GPS_2 300 (new fin was planned March or soo). The new Dakine Harnass (thx Erik/Kater for the recommendation!!) made my day, the best runs I was
only sailing with the harnass (my arms were gone, no more energy). Soo from ideal trim point of view there can be made some little improvement. Who knows I can crack someday the 43kn average barier on this 54.5cm wide board :) :) :), this is crazy stuff for someone near 80kg bodyweight.
Back in GPS top 10, hehehe.
