Craig and co. will be racing at Bournemouth this weekend.

On a mini spin last night a few of us were talking about heading down from the Solent at least on Sat.

Any details anyone?

Well were do i start this weekend was so good for me and Kristian. We got rookie of the day on saterday becuase of our 1st place, 2 4th place postitons and 1 fith place postition.

Today we did alot better than we expected. We started of the morining by doing a 15min interview with the extream sports tv crew and then they rigged are boat with a camera to watch our first race. the first race didnt go to well and we got 6th place but then the next to we made up by getting 2 1st place wins and then went on to get another 2 4th place wins which allowed us to drop the first race. This then took us onto our first final of the season which we finshed 10th but condtions got rough and we didnt want to push it as we were against the tops teams and were happy just to be in the final. Overal we finshed the day in 5th postion for 2days racing out of 35 boats.

wot a weekend

Well done it definitely lumped up in the afternoon

The race looked great if a little uncomfortable for the spectators I nearly dropped my sandwiches.

Well done Craig for Sunday, Sorry I couldn't be there. Had a great day on Saturday though and was good to see you mixing it with the best. We have some good video of you from Saturday winning your heat. I will get you a copy and give it to you when we are back from Le Mans.
