Nelson Mandela Bay Surfski Classic


Cool cover of EP Herald with Katie fron New Zealand and Splash the Staffie pup!

Well, my first ski race for the year was a real tough one. Katie Pocock from New Zealand (current world champ) was here, as well as Nikki Mocke making her comeback.

Had a great race, made a break early one, and then tried to extend my lead on the short downwind section. I know how hard Nikki can chase when she has a carrot in front of her, and I must say I slightly regretted my tactic of going out at the start! Anyway, I managed to hang on t my lead and win by 2’20” from Nikki with Katie in 3rd.

On other news, PE is going well. Got a puppy, he is so cute, and even cracked a cover shot of the local newspaper! Off to Durban tomorrow, can’t wait! And then it’s back to PE for a few days, then CT for a wedding, then on a jet plane to Spain to defend my Eurochallnge title… Hectic times.

Next up is SA Sprints in KZN, followed by the Eurochallenge in Spain.

Thanks for all your support.

Kind regards,
