here's a Belgian guy CR2 feedback.
If someone can translate (I don't know)....
(belgian guy = Jeffrey van Hoe- age 19 - I think around 70-75kg)

Short translation:
saturday 3/3/2007 first time out with my new formula code red's R2 at oranjeplaat (veerse meer holland).

Windreadings: 16 knots, but some more on the water, which was perfect for some testing with the 10.0m.
easy rigging: because of less downhaul and fast clicking cambers
on the water: very easy camberrotation (big difference with last year's code red)
gps max = 49.9km/u

Sunday (at the punt on the grevelingen, Holland)
windreadings around 13 knots
first test with the 11.0m

First big improvement against last year is the high quality: better cambers, materials,...

After 1/2 hour I came back for some more downhaul and after that I've used it for another hour and after that another 1/2 hour. The 11.0 was very light in feeling and reacted very good on all the windgusts.
