    I have an image in my mind of that hobbit - wassisname? Sam - with Gollum on his back.

    Been away from the forum for awhile and just come across this thread. Cheers Phil and Graeme for the congratulations, as most people that know me will know i had been chasing the big 40 for a while and am so stoked to have finally achieved it. Gutted i didn't get it before i was 40, missed out by 2 months but made up for it as my max peak was 41.22 knots so got 41 knots before i was 41

    Currently laid up with a injured knee but should be fit enough for the back end of this year to push on and try to achieve 43.45 knots (50mph) which i snow my next target.

    Only a matter of time before Duncan gets the big 40, keep trying mate

    Next WK day I have a Black Projects X45 starboard tack (21.9cm) to use on the W49, if all things are right, I could do the 40.

    is that "could" as in the announcement a while back that a forward "could" be imminent ? anyway, vast difference no doubt ... the names of your equipment sound so hi-tech and macho that I'm sure it'll be a piece of cake (especially now that you've announced it, so can count on loads of forum cynicism to spur you on).

    ps do we have to pledge stuff like with the loops ?
    two boards, five fins, y posiblemente un poco de viento esta semana

    SB it is more likely than the loop, I have the right gear just need the wind and direction to be spot on for WK.

    This was the last time in Feb. but had to go before the strongest wind came through.
