Not one of my finest decisions to go to Southend today as it looks as though going to West Kirby, I would have smashed all pbs....but never mind...at lease I can save it for another day and give me more to look fwd to in 2012!

It was just too windy today...not bad speeds as I couldn't sheet in properly in 50knots plus...It would have been interesting to see what speeds some of the big guns would have got in southend today...I'll let Dave White off the hook there as he was on his smallest sail 6.2! and couldn't sheet in either.

Cool to see all the seals although they did make me a bit nervious when heads keep poping up infront of me all the time!

Great day at kirby, proper windy and should have used 5.2m a lot earlier, it wasnt until my 5.7 blew out of my hands and across the lake that i realised I need to change down NOW, i'll just put it down to inexperiance with the speed kit.  Just missed a 45 ave maybe next time LOL.

  PB 48.05 1 sec which was nice, but to go any quicker i think it could be time for a smaller board for my once or twice a year road trip.

Anyway it was fantastic to sail along with a few of the best speed sailors in the world, cheers guys it was great to be there.

great day at kirby,nailed a few 10 secs but then got too windy for my 5.4, farrel and steve kindly put a 4.6 rig together for me but ithat was a bit small but it felt sweet, thanks guys,

Dutchies were flying and gave us all a masterclass again , well done guys.

Lots of pbs were scored today, probably DARRENS being the sail of the day ,well done mate and congrats to everyone else who scored pbs or just got down the wall.

Tough luck on HANS who snapped his board in half at serious speed hope your ok.

All in all an epic fun day, bit more wind tomorrow.

   Thanks guys air temp was around 6/7 degrees on my van themometer, so pretty mild for january. feel pretty stiff today after battling too bigger sail for too long,and had to work this afternoon which was a killer. On top of the session 10/11 hours driving on your own aswell just about finishes you off.

Peter you make it sound so inviting, 6 degrees minus windchill, 11 hours driving on crowded English roads..... glad it paid off with some tremendous speeds.
