The real 'secret-squirrel' sailing spot

By July 17, 2008No Comments

A year or so ago Markus Bouman  and I discovered a great little secret rigging spot not far from the “Windsurfing Oostmahorn” club on the Lauwersmeer. A spot that allowed us to drive the van right up to the water (only 2-3m from the edge) and rig up in a soft patch of grass centimetres from the water; in true lazy-Aussie fashion. After a few days sailing in the ocean on Ameland, it was a bit of a change to sail on the flat water lake with semi fresh water – but with 20 knots full-power action on the 11m sails it was a great morning’s sailing and with thanks to my cheap*ss Fujifilm J10 digital camera we managed to catch it all on film. Enjoy the video…
