Extreme conditions during the MKE event at Makkum

Tuesday, 16 June 2015 17:21

The forecast was not too good. With winds expected to gust up to 32 knots unfortunately exactly half of the entrants decided not to come to the regatta but they were wrong as we will see later!

Makkum is located on the IJsselmeer, the same lake as where we will have the Worlds in 5 weeks so it was an ideal event to train a bit on the very typical Ijsselmeer choppy conditions. The event is shared with the Javelin, Spanker and Efsix classes. Also the Vaurien was supposed to be there but they had also looked at the weather forecast and decided to withdraw with the whole class.

This weekend saw two days of Contender racing at the IJsselmeer, off Medemblik. That’s where we will have our World Championship six weeks from now :). Twelve boats showed up, including Walter Baudisch from Germany and Roel Peerlinck from Belgium, eager to hone their skills on the Medemblik chop.
