my rating 5 star rating
Wind Direction: SW Wind Strength: strong breeze Swell Direction: Swell Size: nonexistent Tide: - Falling.

Race 3 of the Omaha Paddleboard Club winter race series. The forecast was epic for down winding with a WSW-SW of 23-30knots! There was about 26 racers and everyone was keen to have fun. The start was in a rain storm that passed over and then we were all on. The were some great bumps to catch and I got some long fast runs fully planing! I only went overboard once and had a couple of close calls. The fleet got spread out and turns out I was mainly at the back of it.

The DC 14'x26" was easier than the NSP 14'x24" as on the DC I could power into the runners better and catch the swell. Top speed was 13.8kmh which was ok. I still have a lot of things to suss out to pick up my pace technique wise.

Great fun. Full on work out. More next month...
