    Default +40 knots on 63cm boards, and a silly drag race

    Hi all UK friends. I guess you know me and Daniel by now, after the last 3 years in Weymouth.
    With the same kits as we used in Portland 2012, we also sailed in Egypt last week, some eye candy for you:

    Nice video Anders, and looks like you had a lot of light wind fun in Egypt

    The winds at West Kirby were pretty light last year, so I ended up using my 8.6m, SB W58 and old C3 Z 34cm for my speed fix. Did manage a 37k peak but only a 36k 5 x 10 sec average on this combo. I feel that the combo is good for 40k peak in the right conditions.

    I noticed that your 40k average was on the 7.8m. What was your peak speed and 5 x 10 sec average on the 8.6m?

    Judging by the poor winds we have had so far at West Kirby, I guess this big speed set will get a lot od use again this year. Its good to see you going so quickly on XL speed as it gives us a bit of incentive to go quickly on XL speed kit
