CA SP50 7.0 Overdrive C3 Slingshot 23
Happy I stuck with the 7.0, 25-30 knots of wind. Wind was more SE that last night meaning the fast water was heading towards the Kiters.
They don't look, jump randomly and haven't got a clue about basic port starboard stuff, made for some interesting downwinders.
Stoked with the PB, particularly that one, in those conditions. Slingshot was solid.
Should have some good vid

Harbour early but too rough to go fast so off to the pond.
Good NE just like the old days, 25 kts and plenty of grunt in it.
SL58 and 5.9 then to 46cm speedy/5.9 when the tide went out.
Kites all over the place , could have gone fast if you didn't have some idiot jump in front of you nearly every run, spooky.
Didn't clobber any but getting close, they definitely ain't sailing so I guess that's why they know nothing about sailing rules.

Mike loading for Shane.
Shane, your meter is set wrong , somebody has been playing and it's not reading at 1 second setting.
You probably did 35 but in a string of 4 or 6 seconds so the analysis filters chop it out.
Have to reset it for you.
