Perfect angle for fully loaded downwind NM runs to Windang. There were some lulls, but not many... it was mostly angry. First try of the the Severne OD and wow! The Severnes have no limit - even when the wind was peaking 35+ the 6.2 was sweet as. Couldn't believe it... no top end. Much better than HSM.
That's one of the sweetest PBs I've ever got. Totally stoked to see a jump of 3kts on my previous 30 NM. Yeeww. Awseome afternoon at Primbee.
Nice to have a yarn with Keef and the local speeders. And great to see Berowne and Andrew from the DDs to make a nice team score. Andrew was flying... in the straps and baring away. Well done mate.

Awesome day down on lake Illawarra. Primbee. Speed board (Naish SP60), TRX 6.3 and Vector Fins Spweedie 23cm.
Great day out with a lot of familiar faces (those not up the north coast competing in GPS races).
Good to see Andrew improve from 3 kts on a 3.0 to 30+ knots on a 5.0 in just a few months!
40kts for Det, congrats, top effort.
100km for Ken, well done mate.
And everyone else for surviving some of the squals!!!
I did a few really fast gybes, but unfortunatley the closing distance must have been wider than 50m :(

Stoked to get a decent westerly this late in the season and on a personal note just one thing to say: FOOTSTRAPS!
Nigel, you were trail-blazing the joint today, so great to watch , awesome PB.
Berowne, nice to meet you again, good to have you back home in OZ. 2 great PBs today and can't wait to see you crack 40kts!
Great to see some of the Illawarra crew including Phil, and also Gustbuster Keith.

GPS event 2 - Brutal westerly:
Race 1 - Exocet RS4 - Venom 7.7 - 39-37
Race 2 - Exocet RS4 - Venom 7.0 - 37
Should have used kit2 for race 1 and vice versa, way overpowered on first race and underdone on race 2.

Very challenging for me, was overepowered in the windy section of the lake and ended up swimming half of the times I tried to jibe. Also had a scary catapult. But it's all part of the fun, doing almost 30 knots accross the wind in the chop can be very exciting . It was great being part of the GPSTC free race event, the location is awesome and the company too.
