Press Release by Diana Boogards "In the F18 class Mischa Heemskerk and Bastiaan Tentij are doing good business. After nine races they are in the lead with three bullets and as a worst result a ninth place, which can serve as a discard. 'We have a new set of sails on the boat", says Tentij, 'and that is one of the best sets we ever had.

The spinnaker is like a rocket, downwind we are not to be stopped. Last year we had a bad season and some problems, which we solved this winter. From now on we can be competitive again. The conditions were fantastic today, but it also was a difficult day with a lot of waves. In the last race we had to deal with many wind holes and therefore it was difficult to sail the boat in a straight line and to
 

keep up the speed continuously. Tomorrow we have three more races. I hope it will be the same as today. We are all round, so we can also sail well with light wind, but it just is fun to have a big breeze."
