Lots of people at the Pit today and why not, the sun was shining, the birds were grounded and the wind was mostly howling, sometimes not a lot and sometimes crap its windy !!!!! Didn,t have a good start, broke the bolt that holds the spring to the trailer in one of our world famous pot holes. Luckly the trailer behaved its self and didn,t roll over and crash. Jambed a screw driver into the spring, a bit of gaffa tape and string, all fixed. Tide was in so off to Daffys to catch up with Slowy and the crew. Started to rig the 5 and broke the main batten. Crap migh be a bit too much for the 5.8, Daffy to the rescue with a spare Ka 4.9 and in green to match the board.
First run down 43.2 peak with the harness lines all over the place, boom wrong height, mast track wrong. Must have hit a black cat some where, but a 43 first run. Its going to be a good day Chased squalls all day and lucked into a few with Slowly and Sam and spiked a 45. Only a few knots slower than them Finished the day stuffed, happy and with a beer supplied by Sam. We must let him in more often. Hard work to get into position for the gusts, but great fun.

PB's for all the speeds. First run was the best. Just felt easy really. I was pleasantly surprised at the PB peak speed of 47.16kts and 10 sec PB of 45.364. 46.435 100m, 45.246 250m, and 44.398 500m!
I tried for a long time to back it up but was out of phase with the squalls for quite a while. I finally nailed another 44.6 10 sec and three 43's but it was a real struggle. Sooo close to the 44 ave, yet so far......
Best tow runs with 2009 5m but then went to 4.4m. CA40, KA 20 assy.
Great to see all the Whoops, Yeeharr'ing and air punching as so many guys got PB's.
