Race report

Raced on the Prestol Adventure 12'6" SUP - thank goodness I did as I would not have made it on the race board. Conditions were strong outflow winds from the North, so a cross tail from the turning buoy to Grey Rocks, sheltered behind the island, then a strong cross head from Grey Rocks back to the turning buoy. There was also some rain, at times heavy. Between wind and wake, some of the waves were 2-3'. Oi! Great race and so glad I didn't fall in this time.

Race report

2nd SUP race and still under 10x on a board. Raced Prestol Quantum 14' board. Proven fast board, but I did not do it justice today. Fell in 2x, but finished! Conditions: Calm, little to no wind, T = 15degC. Excellent conditions for a race.
