Luckily, WASUB had a third chance in the morning and this time it went amazing. We finished the lap in just 71.4 seconds with a speed of 6.1 knots. The engineers told the pilot, Bram Bronswijk, to go slowly so it wouldn’t be a huge disaster if he crashed to the bottom. So Bram tried to go slowly, but the WASUB and Bram were in great shape today so they couldn’t go much slower than 6.1 knots.
After lunch it was time for some test runs as these did not count for the race. This time Robin van der Sande had the honour to be the pilot of the WASUB VI. This run was also a great success, we finished the lap in 69.6 seconds with a speed of 5.5 knots. This would set the track record of this day.
Tonight the team will visit the diving museum. Here the team can learn everything about the history of diving. Tomorrow there will be another race day with an even more narrow slalom. So tomorrow will be a new challenge.
