Lynfield run Auckland NZ.

Bigworld Speed 54, Bigworld 26 fin, KA 5.0 Koncept.

Great day at Lynfield with Martin and Bruce and also good to meet with David and Trent.

The run into the course was initially very rough which meant having to go straight for the bank Foot in mouthand turn alot sharper than normal to start the run. Was well powered up down the run and knew the last run of the day was good when the vision blurred due to the chop. A lower tide would have worked better in smoothing out the water but not complaining with the results!

Big thanks to everyone including the kiters for making room for those on-course and keeping it safe Cool

Shoal Bay, SW 25 - 30 Kn +

Naish Titan 110, Select 31, Simmer Crossover 5.3m.

A good blow and lots of people out. Rig felt good in the lulls but a sub 5m sail would have been more comfortable.

Nice to see you guys are getting wind at last, if you can keep it going you can expect some mainlanders up there any day.

Good on yu Chris,

Myself was a little indisposed off, riding out the cyclone between Great Barrier Island & Cape Colville the night before.

Never thought in a lifetime I would ever have to ride out a cyclone in N.Z waters in a big boat.
