I had an unusually good off shore Jet Ski racing season, considering I was concentrating on paddling, I just completed the third race of the series, "the triple crown of off-shore" on Nov. 1st. When the points were tallied I tied for second overall, first in the vet--master class with three wins. The overall point standings were 1st 1096 points, 2nd 1092, 3rd 1092, I lost the tie-breaker and got third. Basically the three of us finished in a dead heat points wise. I did not win any of the races on my underpowered machine, but many of the super fast boats broke in one or more of the races. Next year I'm hoping my conditioning, (due to the space dragons) will be more of a factor, but this year the races were generally mild conditions. In rough conditions sometimes my body is sore for four to five days after a race, but you should see the other guys.
