Hard to show the scale or continuous nature of the water, lets just say it's a little big and pushy
Two hits puts a 16" crack completely through the hull of a "new" boat. 10kg weight limits are pointless
While putting a large hole in a new boat is definitely depressing, I sort of figured it would happen this course is difficult and completely new to us and it takes time to learn the course. Luckily we were able to scrounge up some resin from the Irish and i was able to patch this up pretty well. With the patch, the boat is stronger than is was new, which is a sad testament to the build quality of light race boats. Today (Saturday) the Irish, Aussies and American did an unofficial time trial to start working on bench marks for times and to see how everyone was doing. The result is that I'm pretty slow but I figured the considering the continuous big nature of the whitewater. Anyway, now I feel pretty comfortable with the course and can now work on pushing harder to squeeze out as much speed as possible. 4 days until the first race.
