Oktoberbokaal Hellecat

We have been very lucky with October's weather. The last 2 weekends we sailed each Sunday 4 races at Hellevoetsluis, Holland and each time we had the sun as our perfect companion.

The first Sunday (October 16) we had very light winds, very shifty conditions but nice sailing.
Last Sunday (October 23) we only slept for 4 hours before we had to get up to race and the sun made sure we had enough energy troughout the 4 races :-) It was a good 5 BFT when we started race 1 and it dropped and shifted a bit during race 3, but for  race 4 we had good steady winds again.

The Oktoberbokaal consist of 4 Sundays of sailing in October on nice protected (i.e. FLAT!!) water in The Netherlands.

The first Sunday we didn't participate because we were accompanying our VVW Youth Teams at The Veerse Meer (also in Holland). So after 2 sailed days we are happy with our 8th place overall. Can we make it to place 7 after next Sunday's last day? Weather forecast looks promising, sun and a 3 to 4 BFT breeze, nice!
