Downwind Cup 2021

Date: May 1 to Sep 30
Distance: 12 km +

Course details: Point-to-point course, best done with a tailwind. This is an open-water race in spirit, which means lake/ocean with wind, rather than a river with current.

Meet the minimum distance requirement, but feel free to go longer. Results ranked by average pace (min/km). You can re-post better results during the race period.

4K Spring Classic - Prone
Smooth start, but at 2k wind and mini waves rolling over the board… and me, made me work a little harder. And pushed my intended square into a loop.
Completely soaked. Not complainin’. Felt good. 😎

How you liking the prone situation? Probably a little easier in the wind?
