I was going to come up wednsday but work got in the way, almost came up thursday but took a punt on Friday and glad i did. Took me a while to set up as not feeling the need for speed. thought third cam had snapped in 5.2 as the cam adjuster had popped open and when i was putting cam on mast it made a bad noise, think it was the cam sliding in its sleeve, also decided to test new dive case from insta today.  Oddely it let in water and sand and so glad I taped the case as the clips came unclipped.  Missed the early high wind in morning. not been speed sailing for so long i lost my mojo and was tentitive weather to even rig up but forced mysef to as just sanded my 21 only one in existance F-hot top and Z Fin hybred. Started off in the lulls to get back into feeling comfortable 35knots then slowly getting faster on every run. last two runs were the best as 42.6 knots peak showing on watch and had to stop as felt front arm tiring and shame as every had finished leaving just me and a lad on wave board and he also came off water so though i should quit while ahead. shame as just getting dialed in and comfortable and could have gone faster which is exiting prospect for future. Also relized whats been holding me back as many small but valuable leasons learnt today and wind was strenthing again and 43 or 45 knots. Nice to see so many speed sailers out as somone on Kirby site said speed sailing is dead lol.  Im back and also is my Mo JO :):):):)

PS. Was rushing doing 5 things at once and in my hast pressed wrong buttons on WATCH and deleted to screen details, had a moment of complete dread but thankfull the watch still had saved the data, phew. wonder if anyone else has doine this lol
