At the BKSA Race and Wave Jam today. The first races of the year are under way in light winds, sunny skies and flat seas.
Light offshore wind blighted the competition yestersay, and all competitors got a lift home in the race boat (which had a couple of minor running issues itself heh heh), but today with a few more knots we’re seeing conestable conditions.
It’s picked up to about 8knots max, and comptetitors such as Jason McCaffrey are using 16m kites and 50m lines to get the advantage over the field.
Denzil Williams from Cornwall took the first win though under the F One Bandit III and his Escape custom race board. I have just heard that Jason McCafffrey has won the second race so he and Denz are tying first at the moment.
It’s looking like we’ll see at least one more race today and tomorrow is still looking more favourable.
