IFCA JYM World Championships

Finished in 8th place at the IFCA JYM World Championships.
We had wind everyday and sailed 8 eliminations in 10 up to 35 knots. I made it to 5 A finals, 2 B finals and one D final due to an over early. It was a though competition with riders of very high level in the top.
Congratulations to the French for winning all 3 spots on the podium!
Although the result was not as expected, I still had a lot of fun and learned a lot.
Big thanks to Jérémy Lacave for the cool picture!

Bonaire Regatta

An awesome 1st place in the Bonaire Regatta this year in both the Slalom Men and Formula Men class!
Having 3 days of good wind conditions for this competition last week in the Bonaire Regatta 2016, I learned a lot while surfing with and against my friend Juvannie Agustien (NB35) who definitely made it hard for me to win!
All smiles here!

WATERZ PWA

A cold first day for the WATERZ PWA World Tour Windsurfing here in Hvide Sande!
We managed to complete 1 elimination for both the men and the women in winds between 8 to 13 knots, temperatures around 15 degrees Celsius and rain.
I passed my first heat by finishing in fourth but in the second round I finished in 5th and just didn't advance to the next heat (top 4 riders advance).
Hopefully it will be sunny tomorrow so we can have some nice weather to warm us up!

Day two of the WATERZ PWA World Tour Windsurfing in Hvide Sande, Denmark.
No wind so unfortunately no races today but we had Caribbean temperatures and clear blue sky's to lighten the mood!
Forecast for tomorrow looks promising, I can't wait to go out on the water and race again!

The third day of the WATERZ PWA World Tour Windsurfing in Hvide Sande was great!
Today we had nice weather and good wind!
We completed 1 and a half elimination, unfortunately I could not make it to the third round today but still happy with my sailing and result!
Currently in 37th place!
Tomorrow doesn't look promising but Friday does so let's hope for the best!

The fourth and fifth day of the WATERZ PWA World Tour Windsurfing had no wind.
We need at least 7 knots over the whole course (PWA rule) so just not enough wind these days for competition but i'm still having a lot of fun playing cards, board games and wake-boarding with the other riders! So a 37th place for me it is!
