Neil Pryde EVO XII 5.2, AV 40cm board, 19.75cm Z fin and 19cm Sontag fin.
What an epic day with LOTS of pressure resulting in the pro's knocking out some HUGE 50+ knot speeds. HUGE respect for their courage and skill! I used my 5.2 up to 50knots but stepped off the course for a couple of hours when it started gusting to 63knots and I saw Hans Kreisel and Oisin change down to 4.9's.
For me I managed 5 runs, but really annoyingly strained my left bicep on the second run when a gust in the finishing area whipped my sail. On my last 3 runs I could hardly sheet in but had a crack. Such a shame as I was really hoping to get over 50knots for 2 seconds. Alas it was not to be. My max today was 47.97knots and not quite as much as my 48.26knots yesterday.
Today brought the event to a close. I have had a great time and very happy to raise my PB exponentially, make some greats and just enjoy the whole Luderitz Speed Challenge experience. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to know what they are capable of.
