Yippee, at last, over 40k averages and a full new set of PB's in all the other boxes:)) Spent the first hour or so telling myself that the 5,7m was to big for these winds, but I eventually realised that I could sail OK with it, runs got faster and faster as confidence grow, shame my energy levels started to drop off. Upwind was very hard work and wasted alot energy.
Top, top day, well chuffed:))

Got held up at work so I turned up around 1630 just in time for the winds to go Nuclear ! Not good when it's the first time on my W44. Scary stuff !!!Anyway just about got 5 runs in without killing myself over that chop...Had 40 max on every run but not for the 10s. Oh well not to be for me this time. Concratulations to Mark H on his 40k averages. Have a beer on me m8 : )

|Mark Bailey (471km): |
After being kept in it's bag for just over a year, I decided to have another attempt at sailing my speedboard hoping that the time put in during the last 12 months on smaller kit would pay off which it certainly did
New PB's in max (40.54kts), 2 sec max, 10 sec avg, average, 100m and 250m
At last I can finally say I'm officially a member of the 'over 40 club'
Would like to say a big thanks to a Farrel, Neil and Steve for their help in sorting my issues with control and kit out.

Well done Mark H, Mark B, Tris and others on there PBs. Thank you Peter C for the loan of your Tushingham X-15 4.6m. made live a lot easier at the end of the day when the wind picked up!
Great day's sailing with speedies from all over the UK and Holland.
my aimÂ for the dayÂ was to get a +40 average as I not achived itÂ this year,Â JOB DONE! So pleased.
Could have rigged my 5.8 but stay on my 5,2 until late in the dat peter offered me a go on his 4.6.
The Moo Custom ate the chop in the middle of the lake when bearing off, Only had to bale out once.
