Last weekend saw the final stage of the 4 Nations, BWA, Wavesailing cup at Gwithians. This venue is practically on my doorstep so I had high hopes for the competition and had managed to get some sneaky training in the week before.

However, I had a complete and utter shocker of a competition. The wind blew from the north east meaning it was cross-off, starboard tack conditions – aka: MY WORST NIGHTMARE. Accompany this with the arrival of an ‘Arctic Blast’ and the fact that my heat commenced shortly after 8 in the morning before the sun had even come up and I was less than impressed with what I was about to endure.

After a 12 min. heat I was even less impressed with my own level of sailing as I quite simply was RUBBISH! Had a disastrous heat and was left wondering why I had even bothered to rig up  РI sailed like a plonker!

That said it was a FANTASTIC event and ended yet another season with a BANG! Thank you so much to all the event crew, especially Nigel and Jim who put so much in to make these comps happen – THANKYOU!
