Short, sharp and fun racing. Natal champs was over the weekend at Pirates which meant surf, even on a small day. I only do the ski races which makes it an easy weeks racing compared to most doing champs.
Had a good couple warm ups Saturday afternoon with the ski relay and a ski heat. Lead them both and felt great considering I have had a 6 week break from training.
Sunday was the ski final. Had a good start in a quality field. Got away with Hank McGregor and held him to the can and ran run for run coming home. Got really outdone in the last 50 to the flags as he smoked away to win by a boat length. The rest of the field on a wave behind all fighting for 3rd.
Have got 2 seconds in a row at nationals and hope to get ready and put myself in a place to have a go at the gold this year. Love the exciting races.
My marine lifesaving club has really been helping out some of it’s juniors showing dedication and talent. One young dood received a board sponsored by the club and Mark Lewin of Custom Kayaks. Well done Trevor!
