Zeebrugge 2018

Yet another amazing weekend in Zeebrugge.

Most of the pilots arrived on Friday, after the usual handshakes kites came out of there bags. Only after it was to dark to see a kite from 35 meters it was time for the funny stories and some beers. Saturday started with a nice SUL wind, even before the sun was above the horizon a few pilots pulled there kites in the air. In the afternoon the wind was blowing a solid 4bft  that made the ballets a bit more of a workout than we wished for. The beach was filled with the noise of icarex braking the airflow on the trailing edges. After the ballets diner was cooked by Jean, it was a very welcome meal after the workout on the beach. As usual suspects went straight back to the beach for the nice UL winds until darkness.

Sunday was a perfect day for a trick kite competition, sunny, 2bft and warm enough for a shirt with shorts. With the perfect conditions during the ballets in the afternoon, the off season training was noticed by the judges in the results. After many flying hours the vide was very laid-back with some discussions about framing kites, best sun protection, planning Bray Dunes and who the winner would be.

Thanks to all who did his part to make it a great season kickoff.
