Yes, yes, its will be a small private yacht, 10-15 people , no strict schedule, and I am pretty sure that the captain will agree. The forecast for the area (the Adriatic sea) states 4-6 BF, 70% probability, so that looks good to me. I just wanted to find out now, rather than after an hour of me preparing the kite, sorting the lines (which I manage to mess up even on the beach) and everybody waiting for me to start, that I would be three times slower than the yacht and that they have to pick me up again and wait for me some more time before I pack everything.. But on second thought, we should be all travelling downwind at the same speed, no.. or me even faster as Brian suggested.
What would be the best direction of the boat for me to go on the kite - when the boat is going pure downwind ? It seems like it to me, otherwise I would have to go too much on one side, if the boat would be sailing across the wind. And yes, I intend to go in front of the boat, I was thinking if something happened, I dont want to be pulled towards the boat by the wind, but it would be better to stay ahead of it or next to it. And if I should get dragged somewhere, I hope the boat will always get me..
Cheers again for any other advice! It does seem very tempting, but a little bit scary at the same time, so any advice is greatly appreciated!
