On Saturday we had another good speedday with the Steinhuder crew. The forecast looked pretty great with a steady 19kts gusting up to 35kts eventually. Unfortunately the wind was accompanied by a lot of rain. Rain in combination with SW wind is usually not good at Steinhude, and as a matter of fact the wind never reached 35kts. On top of that the water level is very high at the moment because we’ve had a lot of rain in the last weeks. Usually it’s around 110cm, on Saturday we had 124cm. This makes the water more choppy.
It’s been a couple of busy weeks for me with quite some windsurfing over the summer, but now I finally found some time to review some of my highlights this summer. Firstly I managed to achieve one of my goals I’ve had for quite some time now; to go 40 knots on a slalomboard.
