I was keeping an eye on the forecasts for days and decided at the last minute to make the trip to West Kirby, leaving after i finished work at 9pm yesterday, getting up there just before 1am and then slept in the van to be ready for a dawn session as i would only have a 1-2 hours before heading back to Birmingham to start work at 12. I knew i would be kicking myself if i missed what was looking to be an epic forecast.

It was also my first session on my new Mistral Speed after taking delivery of it earlier in the week so that was my other reason for heading up as i wanted to get my new toy on the water wink

I got on the water at around 6.45 and i was stoked to find out how easy the Mistral Speed was to sail on my first run where i clocked just over 39 knots which was a new PB smiley but the best was still to come on my 4th run when i locked onto a gust at the start of the run and when i got off my board at the end of the run i was stoked to finally see that i had broken through 40 knots and got a new PB max speed of 41.22 knots smiley, asyou can imagine i was pretty happy and you couldn't shift the smile off my face. 

I managed to get in another couple of runs before i had to get off the water and head back to Birmingham. Can't wait for my next trip back up there to try and get my next goal of a 40 knot 5x10 second average
