I don't know how to set up the app in Suunto to remove this parameter. Have no idea how it is calculated btw.
Once you find the sweet position of the feet then you might go hours on one tack.davesails7 wrote: Damn Bracuru! Those are some long runs on one tack! My back leg gets tired after just 4 miles. I don't think I've ever passed 50 miles (80km) in one day. This is some motivation to go further.
That was the main concern before Bornholm crossing. A lot of training and hours allowed to find the neutral position. I am not lying - for instance I might go 6 hours on one tack with pretty good speed 20kts.
You're right. Then we call one of our wives or friends to pick up us.Pedro Marcos wrote: Wow, the only problem is: what if the wind dies when you are 100km away from where you started ? You take a phone with you?
One Sunday in June the wind died out once the team was 80km from the homespot. It was around a noon. They need to wait for a driver a while.
Unfortunately they landed off an opened beachbar.
None of the teammates remembered how and when they reached home late night
Since then our wives do not like the long distances
To be honest I believe that the long distances open a new chapter in foilboarding.
The feeling of riding at open sea is great. Really relaxing. Most of us found it not boring.
At least we are different than standard kiter who always rides nearby his backpack on the beach
We are becoming more sailors than kiters.
BTW. Sometimes I call friends to discuss daily matters on the long downwind legs. They believe I am sitting at home aand are rather surprised to hear: "Mate, wait a second. I need to jibe"
More or less true. However it was slow.
My best average one hour speed on one tack is 22kts.
2h15m - 87km - average 20kts.
