The survivor will know the best what was the reason of this tragedy.
Were they finishing the session due to changing spring current at 1900 or due to the foam concentration?
How did he make it? Managed to cross the foam earlier or waited for help outside or swam on offshore side of the North breakwater?
The spot will never be the same. My condolences to friends and families of casualties.
Can't sleep thinking about this tragedy and what I would do being with them.
I work and sail at sea 30 years and feel safer at sea than at hard ground. Used to windsurfer and kite at Dutch waters.
Most likely, I would not write this post.
Spoke to SAR friends in Poland.
They are in shock and told about cases of RIB engine stops when helicopter flies next to it due to sea spray cutting out air needed to run engine.
Remember one windsurfing session at Baltic when waves were super high and wind gusts over 50kts. I could not breath riding between waves. My lungs got sea spray instead oxygen.
Had to finish at once.
This is about the lost. My heart is broken...

Body of Mathijs is still not found. Nightmare for family.
