British GPS Speed Ladder 2011

have joined together for a GPS Speed Ladder for 2011. I was just browsing the results and found these. I cannot say how unbelievable happy I am, especially with my average hour result.

Currently 4th in the UK, out of a total of 61 participants. Some of which are fully sponsored sailors. I am not really yet able to compete with top speeds as I do not have a small speed sail or a small board that I get the opportunity to use. The one I have is an old pure flat water board and this is not suited well for Portland Harbour. With a decent 80l and 5.4ish speed sail under the right conditions I am sure I can get close to the top in other disciplines by the end of this year. 
 My nautical mile speed was done in easterly harbour chop as opposed to flat water and I should be able to destroy this speed as soon as we get a strong west-south-west wind. I am happy with the results though so far.

  1. This should be a good year to gain some extra speed :). Your average speed looks very OK, just some peak speed finetuning.
