Great end to the year. Congrats to all today especially Swagger. Have a great evening and see you all soon. Max GPS display was 37.24 :-D

Thank you to Swagger as well for coming and checking when I was stuggling, I lost all strength and my heart was racing too much, at least 5 failed waterstarts and seeing you come over gave me the confidence to get back on hte board.....back to shore to rest.

2012 goes out with a bang....wind and plenty of it! Bumpy on the course (quite a bit of south in the wind), but still managed to keep it together resulting in some pleasing results. Good few out, considering the heavy rain...nice to see!  Liking the X-15 sails!!

Tabou 49 +5.2m X-15

Sometimes Portland harbour can be very frustrating....looked a great forcast so managed to get some bonus time from the wife.  Very gusty and difficiult conditions.  Packed up after a short time.

Well what a way to end the year pb on the max, waited 3 years and 2 months for this in the harbour and i am buzzing! Got a great gust to light it right up for the max but 10's no good what so ever needed a bigger sail than i was using but i would have got nailed upwind!

But nice to see Simon and Johnny make the treck up the coast hope they got home safe? wind and rain must have made it horrific on the way home.

Oooh just noticed i got an alpha while speedsailing Result.........

Thankyou boys we done good again this year, My biggest cheer goes to Dogfish i'm gonna be watching next year and giving you bollockings not just swimming out to get you, But i will take my hat off to Yorkie for always searching for the wind and flat water, Jim Crossley (The Tank) for doing his bit and doing the miles on the road as well. Of course The Matrix giving it the all on every discipline of GPSteamchallenge every month throughout the year not forgetting Camel for waking up and the rest of you to make it work.

So on this note we need to shake it up a bit next year and be a team there maybe a couple of new members next year? For the best i hope and if we pull together then there will be some emails flying about as of old......

Keep up the good work Lea you have excelled beyond, just stop running around like a headless chicken afterwards........

Happy new year GPSteam challengers. Laughing
