What a season, wind even not good for a distance sailing. Took me 5 hrs non-stop to get 100km then 10 min break and another couple hours of "high-speed sailing" with last 15 min in the dark. Started at 11:40 and finished at 19:00. Had a couple of good runs with the first gust on a flat water, one maxed over 35Kts and 33 Kts 500m but only lasted for 700m and I've got out of the gust. Would be nice to improve Nautical Mile on the biggest gear I have. At least gear was working just fine. Conditions were not even close to 1hr attempt, was on a plain only about 50% of the time.

Great effort Denis but what a workout. Always good to see a PB for your hard work.

I guess if I can't sail often enough, I have to sail as long as can when I have a chance to stay in shape. This year we've had the worst wind I can remember.

Last winter was the same here, no storms at the coast. So far it's looking good but the seasons get screwed up very easily with La/El Nino/Nana. You may have to visit the Gorge next year, lots of wind to go around up here.

Thank you guys. Al sorry, I didn't mean to do that with less than 2km over your distance the plans were much bigger, but it was all I could squeeze out that day.
