epic day of wind. Totally unseasonal for a winter front to come through this strong at this time of the year.
5.0m e5, Mistral 41, KA20 asy.
long day at the rsoles. Broke bottom batten in the middle after 2 runs when Istacked a gybe. Sailed it like that with a big kink for the rest of the day. Didnt seem to matter!
Got some nice gusts. WA PB and 2nd fastest peak with 49.09 on the dial... yeeeehar! Best 10 sec 46.38, 500m was 43.156 Stoked!
Crasher and stringer were there when I got there with Norts. Some good numbers guys! Tom showed up a bit later and was still banging out runs when I left, as stoppo was turning up. Hope they got some good runs in too.
Saw Norts take a big one. He was going wide and looked dangerously out of control and then the inevitable happened. Big crash. It seemed to warp the space time fabric. He emerged some time later from the spray ball as a ragdoll... tomski to the rescue with his board, then crasher rescued his gear. Hope John is OK...

Finally got hold of my sd card and computer.lost almost a knt from displaybut still,it was a real eye opener, serious wind and flatish water are not something Iv'e ever experienced before, whilst going fast in these conditions is relatively easy if you're prepared to sheet in and bear away,there are consequeces if you get it wrong! Tunning and experience which means sailing those conditions more often would help.I've been bitten in more ways than one and will definatley be back for more(of the good part) with that little experience under the belt.
