In the proa corner of the sailing community one is expectantly looking forward to a video of sailing with Blind Date, special after the latest rudder modifications. So last Sunday September 11 and together with four guests we sailed Blind Date special for this purpose. The wind was between S and SW and blowing force Bf4 to Bf5 (according to local wheather station, our windmeter is in the repair), max GPS speed 12.8 kn. We sailed from Flevo Marina Lelystad to Trintelhaven in the lee of the dyke Lelystad to Enkhuizen. That’s why the water is quite flat without significant waves. Click for the YouTube video.
My Ipad was loaded with a GPS tracker. Click in the pictures below to see the track and speed record. Another click in the then expanded picture brings you to the moving track in Google Earth.
