Arrived early afternoon to see Hans walking back into the car park holding half a board, 10 mins later Farrel comes over with a bloody nose to claim back the weight jacket he lent me after just destroying his main one in a wipe out, the wind re-defined the definition of nuking for me and quite a few people are changing down to 5.0 or less and the smallest I have with me is a 5.2 - nervous ? Yeah sure I was !

I was pretty tensed up on the first couple of runs and even though they gave 10 secs of 39 kt and 40 kt I wasn't at all relaxed so I took 10 mins out to 'have a bit of a talk to myself'. Back on the water after the chat, I felt totally focused and went and scored a 43.6 kt max with a 10 sec of 41.8 kt. Got more and more relaxed as the session went on with similar high numbers (for me anyway !) on all runs :-) Saw a 44 on the dial but the software has taken it down to 43.989 kt  :-(

Claimed new PB's in pretty much all the main categories, still on a high, awesome day :-)

Thanks to Ian.R for the loan of the Casper / GPS Speed 25 cm fin and to Paul.B for lending me a weight jacket and thanks to Howie for his dedication to storm tracking the big days.

Edited by OPH to reflect changes to GPS3S session posted - Steve now posting from the slower of the two GT31s.  Not sure whats happening with the decision, as Steve is still not showing in the GPS3S rankings.
