|Event||British GPS Speed Contest|
|Spot||Portland Harbour, Weymouth, United Kingdom|
|Average speed||25.89 knots ( 26.58 26.34 25.81 25.4 25.33 )|
|Remarks||The last day of Weymouth speed week and relatively light winds so I was on my biggest slalom kit. We had one long session of 2.5 hours but I only sailed for the first two hours and in that time clocked up 30 nautical miles! As far as personal records go, I managed to get my best speeds to date on the JP Slalom 109 and Tushingham Lightning 8.5m (e.g. peak speed, 10s, 5 x 10s, 500m). My official speed for the 544m course was 24.94 knots which matches up very closely to my GPS readings (see above). At the end of the day, we finished off with a master blaster and I came in third, winning a DaKine hydration pack (like a Camelback). |
