044 ANALYSIS PARALYSIS AND WAITED QUITE AWHILE TO RIG, MEANWHILE IT WAS 25-35 FROM NOON ON. NO CRASHES, SPUN OUT A LANDING AND MISSED SEVERAL THINGS AT BOTH ENDS. NEVER REALLY GOT DIALED IN, VOODOO CHOP EVERYWHERE AND INCONSISTENT BUT STRONG WIND MADE FOR MOSTLY TOUUGH GOING. LOST A MAST FOOT BOLT THAT LOOSENED ALLOWING THE BASE TO SLIDE BACK, POP OUT OF THE TRACK AND DETACH FROM THE BOARD WHICH TOOK OFF BY ITSELF. IN NICE SHALLOW WATER, MANAGED TO CATCH BOARD AND RECONNECT WITH THE REMAINING BOLT WHICH HELD ENOUGH TO SAIL BACK. VERY LITTLE UNDER 20 AND QUITE A FEW PEAKS ABOUT 30 BUT NOT THAT MUCH FUN IN BETWEEN. GPS > > > 35.7 MILES @ 31.3 MPH PEAK
