What a day First run out this morning a had the best run of the competition with a 45.76knots. It was the fastest run i have had to date. At the end of the run i went to look at my GPS...... i had left them sitting in the container.........GRRR. I cant believe it. But no way of proving how fast i went. Spewing.
The wind picked up today to 55 knots and it is an insane place, the canal is one crazy place the wind is one thing but getting the canal in your mind is another, so far i haven't had a run where i have just relaxed and sailed, i am tense and not locked in. It is going to take a few more days for this. Only did 4 runs today 2 of which were in control.
Very happy happy so far with my results i am sailing faster and learning heaps to. More wind to come on Wednesday.
Seb Cattlelan was charging today on his kite only 1.5 knots of the world record, with a peak speed of around 58 knots i think, thats how windy ity was.

Wow!!! Luderitz at its finest!! Today I started with the 5.8 Koncept on the 41 Mistral (only board I have here anyway) and 21.5 KA/Lockwood assy. I stuggled a bit on the first few runs and felt like I was hitting a "max out wall" in the high 46 peaks and 44-45 10 secsÂ . The wind was picking up so I grabbed the 5.4 Koncept. Apart from Daffy doing a run on it the other day it was brand new. The speeds were a touch higher but still dissapointing. It was time to separate me from my security blanket - the 21.5 assy. I fitted the 20 KA/Lockwood Assy and the next run was in 50+ knot of wind. It felt just like its 21.5 cm brother but faster! I hit the end of the run and saw 50.01 peak on the dial... woohoo.. I beat every one of my pb's in one run theÂ next run saw my 5x10 pb fall. It was a bit slower. Then the timing gates were closed for the day. The yet to be confirmed 500 on the ratified course was 47.23 New Aus record and only .08 slower than the fastest guy of the day (French). The times will be officially ratified tonight so stay tuned. No sailing for the next 2 days Fastest run : Ka Koncept 5.4 2014, Mistral 41 2013, KA assy 20.
