So, after the good forecast of the 3 january 2008, antoine Albeau came to my place for prepare this sailing. We both have some new board and fins so we set up our equipement for being ready. The day after was a long one… We arrived early on the morning on the Sainte Marie de la Mer. I rigged my Gaastra Vapor 4,5; 5 and 5,5 meters and prepared my new Tabou Guns (33 and 37 wide) with 2 small Deboichet Downwindspecialy made by JJ! My first run was a try one, I did a 42 knots, on the second I did 44. I said to myself it could be a nice day. I change a few my seetting and return on the (cold!) water. I did a 45 and 46 knots runs back to back! It was a great suprise for me to do this speed! My equipement was really stable and that one of the key for being fast I thinks. At the end of the day my best run was a 45,94 knots and I did 3 runs over 45 knots (1,75 knots after Antoine Albeau and 0,40 knots after Finian Maynard, the current faster men on the water!) I am pretty happy to do this time (4th best speed time in all windsurfing history!) and to be in contact with these big boys! Now I am waiting the next wind (mistral from the North) because I thinks the conditions will be better for having some runs close to the 5O knots! You can check for more info, pics and movie.
