    The Day's Summery:

    Yesterday arvo I made a new PB, slowly but surely climbing up in speed

    We missed out on the 50kt+ winds by the time we arrived and possibly just as well

    the winds were on an average of 12kts with a few spikes to about 17kts.

    I took the PTW Cougar II for a run with my 10m Speed 1.5

    unfortunately Paul & I had to start slowly up just as the wind/beach direction kicked in good and proper

    so as not to mow down any beach goers that should have been indoors eating dinner and leaving the beach to us

    so a higher speed may have been recorded but not that day  

    The first run that I knew was fast was 70.0k's and after a few more other runs managed to squeeze a couple more k's

    I was so stoked to finally crack the 70k barrier that I was doing my happy dance all over the beach  

    Then I decided that I would take the 5.5mtr Yakuza GT for a run, now that's a different story
