Pampus Slingshot

Lots of wind forecasted for the Easter weekend. Saturday materialized as being the best day for sun. With the forecasted southerly 5/7 Bft winds a 'training' run on the Markermeer seemed a nice thing to do. Plan was to paddle from Uitdam to Muiden via Pampus island.

After two hours strugglng against the force 5/6 winds, Fred and I reached Pampus and decided to have our lunch in the restaurant there and return. We were back within an hour, surfing all the way.

This was a nice combination of continuous and interval training. The interval training felt more tiring today. Catching waves and powering through for long fast runs, ruddering and bracing. Good training for the Anglesey races in May.
