Down wind start off Hill Head in a fairly stiff breeze and got over the line second just behind Wee Bear.  Too tight for a kite at first but tried the asymmetric about three quarter of the way to the Forts. Asymmetric was a too much in the gusts so took it down with some difficulty as the sheet flogged off in the process but probably did not loose out that much.  Inside the Forts and scrapped past Bembridge Ledge with a tricky final beat up to West Princessa.  Judged the beat pretty well and seemed to get some ground on those following.  Once round the mark it was a reach to the finish and changed up to the number 1 to get some extra power.  No chance of getting the Contessa's with their rating advantage and Hydra had passed us on the way to the Forts so not a bad fourth place.
