Report From Simon Northrop - Photo Credit Simon Northrop.
"Very challenging day Saturday - 2 races gusting 30 knots we won both races comfortably and lead overnight- Sunday totally different. blue skies and a gentle 8-10 knots we placed 5th and a 2nd. But sadly Dnf in the last race as we had some gear failure which meant we slipped from first to the Runners up slot :( we were using a new Hyde kite for the event which performed really well both days especially when the 30 knots gusts were hitting as it just lifted the bow and powered us forward fully in control at speeds of over 20 knots!"
