Lord Flashhert had never been better. The quick creative fixes were better than the stuff I have been using for the last 4 years. I had 3 days of fantastic racing and it really was a great event. A big thanks to the German Moth fleet and Walchensee sailing club.
In the end I finished in the middle of the fleet, which is where I always end up. Lord Flashheart showed her age a bit and was the tortoise amongst the hares.
After the last race on the last day we all raced to the shore to escape the Mountain storm. I was 200 meters from the beach when several tons of air avalanched down a mountain onto the lake and sent me speeding faster than I have even been in a Moth. I was feeling a bit confident so I rode it as would Lord Flashheart. Then the next gust came on top of that and I was too scared to jump off so I rode it too. This did not last long and the wing I was sitting on broke in 4 places under the load. I rose to the surface of the lake after the crash and my first thought was "Thank Fuck I have stopped because i was not sure how else I could.". However now Lord Flashheart is in need of new carbon wing and I am not sure if I can get the tubes on time for the Worlds.
Back to the (moldy) Batcave for some super hero boat fixing.
