started the day leaving at 4.30 am to try for an early session. Arrived at 8.00 to find it too north west and light. Had to be at a meeting in the city at 1.30 so I left cursing. WhenÂ I came out of the meeting there was a message that Grant had a pb and it was on. The tide was about to turn and I was 2 1/2 hours away. I decided to make the trip back to Sandy on the chance the tide would stay out longer than expected. I arrived to find it rushing in and rigged super fast. First run was 45 on the dial and 10 sec of 44. Unfortunately I broke a boom clamp rope and had a swim in wasting time I didn't have. From then on the wind slowly dropped as did the times. I tried desperately to get 5 good ones but the tide was lapping at the car wheels and the rolling chop was getting pretty harsh. Another 2 runs would have done it but the points go to Shelby today. Well done!!
