Good solid wind today and i felt good, everything was really balanced today, but it was a traffic jam on the course sometimes having to wait 45 minutes for a run.... frustrating i needed a couple more good ones to get a better average, but the wind had peaked and was tapering of fast. Today was a good wind strength for me in the peak of the day gusting to 40 in the best part.
My best run was a 48.596 and a ten second of 46.959 and 500 of 45.918
Tommorrow even windier, see how i go.

Another fun day at the speed canal. The wind was lighter and gusty. It was also swinging slightly making it quite hard to steer in the canal. Found myself VERY close to he downwind bank. Even the GPS tracks show that I was.. It proved that you have to be absolutely on the ball at speed here. There are a few extra new people here so the line at the start is quite frustrating, most of the time waitng 45 mins for a run then having a lull when its your turn. If that happens and you cant go then it's back to the end of the que.. Annoying when the next person gets a gust...At one point today I didnt get a run for 2 1/2 hrs. So its becoming the luck of the gust. Tomorrow it might be better if the wind is a bit better, say 35-45.. lets hope. Jacques ripped in the lighter conditions and even found the wall once.. I still came 2 nd today on official 500 m speeds and still coming 2nd in the event even though today was a bit slower... KA 2014 5.8 Koncept, Mistral 41 speed, Lockwood KA 20 cm Assy
