Raid West

This weekend we are participating in the Raid West. This is a cat raid from Knokke-Heist to Oostduinkerke in one day, Saturday. The next day, Sunday, we are sailing back to Knokke. Saturday night we are sleeping on the beach and enjoying a barbeque and some beers (not for everyone)...

The weather looks promising, sunny and a little windy, ideal! Next week I'll give you an update on how we did.

Let's hope this time we will make it there and back in one piece :-)
Last year our mast broke down just before we arrived in De Panne. I went over board and had to climb back and hold the mast so it would not get stuck in the sand on the bottom of the sea. Finally a zodiac came to our rescue and dragged us and the boat to the beach. The next day the ride back to Heist was on a trailer behind our car. The year before we also couldn't return back by boat because our rudder broke off while getting trough the point break in Oostduinkerke.

This is the club where we are going to enjoy the company, barbeque, drinks and breakfast!
