Netherlands, Spring Cup 2011

KZ & RV Hollandia, Medemblik

29th April - 1st May

Report by Greg Wilcox

The first day was hot and sunny and between 8 and 15 kn. 3 good races with no problems at all. Perfect race committee as usual.

2nd day was quite windy at around 18-23knts gusting 28 or so. Eric (Vliegenthart - Race Officer) went out a few times to check and at around 2-2:30 it was up to 33knts so he canned it for the day.
As is normal the wind then dropped to around a steady 18-20 and a few guys went for a sail.

Sunday was steady 28-30kn and really was a bit too windy. The biggest fear threre is not the wind but rather if you capsize and your mast gets stuck in the mud. It is deep enough to get the boat over the top of the masts so can easily cause a lot of damage.
Jack (Brakeboer - Pub owner) is in good spirits and of course although we tried hard he always had some beer left at the end of the night. Very good pasta dinner at Brakenboers and a good social event.
