Ah! Great vid Bruce and super to see you both again - and to see Wave Sweeper for the first time. Didn't know I'd been caught in action
Sadly, as you've said, I didn't regain my title, notwithstanding achieving a personal best distance.
Puffin: - and Bruce. You're quite right. When I was champion (joint) it was all down to skill. This year my 31 metre skim was also down to skill. The guy who skimmed 47 metres to win was just lucky. The conditions were too easy. My third throw would've hit the wall if it hadn't dive bombed.
Jambo: What a pity you couldn't make it. Would have been a super trip on a lovely day. There was a good gathering of RIB's in the harbour though the only RIBnetters I met AFAIK were Bruce and Tony (Seafari).
Another wonderfully eccentric West Coast event, made even better by the super weather this year.
