Flat out

Here are Martien and I heading back upwind in about 26 knots on the Lauwersmeer last Sunday.
Saturday afternoon we had 30 knots of wind and Sunday started with slightly more. Survival conditions. After lunch we went back out to practice sailing by the lee - looking for that elusive course where everything suddenly gets steady and time slows down, that's when you gybe.
We found it, it's really there and it works. Thanks to trainers Kim and Harry for all the things they taught us this weekend, to Jaap and Hans for the great organisation and to all the DTP Laser sailers who came and made it a great weekend.
