This is my fourth time on the water after removing my baggy dry suit/parachute. By the way, without the dry suit I’ve had to run the boat fewer RPMs. Perfect Pass Clasic. I had not planned to cut to 11.25m for a while because I feel that I have got to relearn everything. Why, I don’t know, but I did go up the rope and cut to purple. I rushed #1 and that was it and I was not at all surprised. I was going to let the rope out and work on the much needed form, but Jim Neely was pulling me today and encouraged me to give it another shot, so I did. I was skiing so poorly and late coming out of every buoy but stuck with it. We are always told to be patient even when we are late, so I did. If you watch this video, notice how far down course I am coming out of the buoys. And next time you are late, remember the advice that people always give us and stick with it. You might be as surprised as I was.
