NK-WINDSURF, Hargen Aan Zee

Hargen3The third event of the NK-Windsurf Series in Holland happened last weekend at Hargen aan Zee which was part of a massive Volleyball, Kitesurfing and Catamaran showcase event. After a slow start in the first race Sean had a great start in Race 2 to lead for two laps only to be pipped on the last downwind by RSX champion Casper Bouman (NED-2). He was later told he was OCS and disqualified from that race.

On the second day, the wind increased and many of the sailors had rigged slalom gear hoping to get out on that instead of formula. The wind was a little gusty and so five formula races were held over the day with winds up to 25kts and seas close to 2.5m and breaking. In Race 7 after leading the entire first lap Sean had a large crash, resulting in a broken boom. This cost him a few places and he finished 4th overall by one-point to Dennis Littel (NED-13). Ron Ruiter (NED-1111) and Casper Bouman (NED-2) finished 1st and 2nd.
