The Grevelingen Chop Team, West Kirby fires up and other news articles
This is what Jacques had to say on the GPS Team Challenge session post ‘forum’
Did only one attempt for the team. When almost everybody was on the beach waiting for the wind to increase i was sailing upwind and nobody was starting a run.
Managed to start with 25 knots sailing upwind the wall and in the corner i accelerate up to 34 knots in the gybe, the way back was downwind and speeds where 36 knots, this was good enough for an @500 average of 28,27 knots. As you can see there are many ways to get a nice alpha average.
34 Knots in the Gybe, that is near my peak! I feel partly ashamed and partly in awe.
