Cheltenham SUP club racing was on with a reasonable turn out considering it was pretty windy SW offshore. The course was parallel along the beach and back around the pontoon and down the beach and back again. I took off fast and was in second at the far end but got caught up in weed and the rest of the fleet plowed into me. Managed to fight through that and get up to speed to get to within 10m of the dude in front for the rest of the until the last 200m I started to catch him and then overtook by pontoon to then power around it to the beach and win - again!!! Third race win in a row and beating the two guys who always win!

Reckon that third hand DC 14' x 26" custom board has some magic as it heavier than the Starboard All Star and Ace that normally win.

The guys are now saying I need a 2:30 min handicap because I'm on a 14'…what is 18" amoung friends eh!?

DISTANCE 2.65km SPEED max 11.9km/h
