RemarksI used a big gust to good effect and recorded my best max to date.
The tide had the final say again, so I did speed up until 12h30, and then again after 5pm when the chop from the inlets was no longer a factor.

I'm battling to improve my averages without the barrier in place as the run at low tide has a s-shape which requires you to beat/edge upwind in the beginning and bear away towards the end (if you want flat water).
I had a nice cartwheel wipe out this morning and hurt my ankle trying to take a shortcut over the sand bar at the beginning of the run in a bid to straighten it out.
A good day none the less.

Session reposted due to change over.
Speeds Doppler based as I've done since the beginning.
