2nd in Ireland

After a disappointing no wind event in Rhosneigr, we came to Ireland with a pretty good forecast. The swell didn't really kick in as we had hoped, but still there was enough to run the contest. Conditions were pretty hard for competing, with inconsistent waves making it a bit of a lottery. The first couple of heats went well and I found some good waves, but the final didn't go quite so well. Until the final 5 minutes I was really struggling, but had a couple of good ones right at the end to sort me out. Final results were Timo in 4th, Phil 3rd, myself 2nd and Ben 1st. Congratulations Ben, he was ripping all day. Now we have to hope for the double elimination where I get a chance to improve the result and hopefully have another go at Ben.
