Team Allen’s Ben Purrier finished 3rd at the Topper NS5 racing at Carsington.
“Very windy on the first day hitting 30 knots in the gusts, I was working really hard to fight my way to the front of the fleet, and was rewarded with 3 wins out of three.
Finishing day 1 leading the fleet was a brilliant feeling but I was too tired after working so hard in the heavy winds to really enjoy it! It was straight to bed ready for day 2.
Sunday was a completely different day, with light and shifty winds. The lulls we saw made it feel like snakes and ladders, and being on the right side of the course when the wind filled gave big gains. I maintained consistent top 10 results and finished the event 3rd overall (where just a few points separated the top 6). It was good to be on the podium at the end of this great event with the biggest range of conditions we could have raced in.”
