Tag Archives: Code Red
Since I came back from South Korea, it was on monday, it´s great here at my homespot. Yesterday I was out on iSONIC 101 and Code Red 7,0. Today the wind picked up to 30 knots + in gusts – it was very gusty – and I had fun on the 6,2 and 86. What a nice feeling sailing on small gear after many days on big gear. Today Kerstin and her bro Florian, webmaster of continentseven.com, went out on the lake as well. It was definitely a nice day, ripping together till the sun was down!
It was the first spring day. temperatures up to 15°+. What a change! And the wind kicked in with more than 20 knots and in gusts up to 30 at Lake Neusiedler. I decided to sail in Weiden. This spot works much better with wind from south eastern direction. Today it was super exciting: it was the first time on the new Code Reds. I had a session with Pfaffi and Peter, two excellent Slalom and Formula sailors from Austria.
At the beginning I went out on the 7,0 and the iSONIC 101. The 7,0 has a lot of power and is very easy to lock.
Later on the wind picked up and I switched to the 6,2 and the iSONIC 86 combo, which works amazingly great.
I was super motivated to test the 8,1 and 8,8 a well, but the southeastern wind kept its strength and it was still strong enough when the sun was down below the soft Leith hills. So, no 8,1 and 8,8 testing. But there is a chance to catch some wind from the same direction tomorrow morning till midday. Would be great!
In the moment I really live on the right place. Almost windy every day and not too cold. I write about my homespot Lake Neusiedler. Today a massive stormfront kicked in and 30 to 40 knots of wind blew from westerly direction straight onshore at the beachpark of Podersdorf. I went out for a trainingssession with Tom Böhm, who is really motivated for the upcoming PWA Slalom competition in May.
It was not easy to sail with the 5,0 sails. The wind was up and down. 20 knots, 40 knots, 30 knots, 15 knots…..And it was a hard job to make it on the water. The wind tried to blow myself back to the parking area.
