Great conditions for racing at Cheltenham SUP club. I took off and found myself right at the front straight away and was having a good tussle with one other dude on the way up to Narrow Neck clashing paddles. Rounded the mark neck in neck and then I managed to pull way and keep charging all the way back to Cheltenham to win…actually smoke the rest of the fleet by at least 100m!!!! I was as surprised as everyone else! I haven't even been on my race board for a few weeks so reckon I have really benefitted from the running I have been doing recently and the 14'x26" board as last year I was getting my arse kicked and was coming in at the back of the fleet. Stoked!
Obviously fully rehydrated with craft beer back in the club rooms :-)
