Was not going to sail today (I am busy this arvo) but lucky... tide was right, wind was right, time was right.. hardly anyone at the Pond, so had a quick blast..in and out 5-6 laps

Got the feeling today is going to bring some good numbers for everyone at Hardies as I am not sailing this arvo!Wink

CA50, 5.8RSS, 245/40_SS fin (should have used the 44)

Testing boards session today, started out on my new speed board, got a 34.9 on that, then went out on Crasher's AB46, for a nice change, this didn't kill the wind.

Managed a 35.5m, then I came in too close on the return run and damaged my new 20cm tuttle weedy, so then took my old board out, couldn't get comfortable for some reason and only got a 33.5

If I'd been feeling fresher would have tried a bit of weight, was overpowered in the gusts, and having trouble keeping the power down.

 

Nice to see the smile on Adam's face, when he got the 40, congrats mate!!!!

Hardy's still out there trying to match it.

Today was Adam's Day!!!!  Well done buddy you probably deserve it more than anyone else, given you've missed so many sessions while serving your country!!!!!

As for me, well what a fuck up of a day, missed a perfect chance to join the 40kt Club, However, I'm alive, not in a Hospital Quadraplegic Ward, so I gotta be ecstatic about that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I went through Hardies Run on a marginal tide riding the Missile S and the Gaastra Vapor 5.5m, it was my 3rd run, was doing miod to high 36's, was going through the run a gust hit and I went for it, accelerating faster and faster, thinking this could be it, then this yellow object appeared just below the water surface, Oh O....and I hit a rock that was about only 5cm below the water line, Hull of the board was damaged that's how close to the surface it was, The fin broke off at the base, the fin box was destroyed, I got catapulted so violently but luckily flung from my harness lines, that I had time to think I'm gonna break my kneck here, and I'm gonna be unconscious, I managed to do a somersault did a 360 landing on my stomach and face, seeing stars for a second or two, then thought fuck I'm totally OK, not hurting anywhere, not injured, and I STARTED LAUGHING HYSTERICALLY?  Did the long walk of shame got back to find Adam had joined the 40kt Club, and wanted him to enjoy that moment, and I thought I've only done 3 runs, I need to back him up, so I got Crasher's AB+ 54cm and took that out and did my best speeds on that.  Sorry Crash I'm too light now only 85 kg's the wind had picked up, the tide higher the chop bigger, I couldn't keep the power down, with me getting lifted up onto the balls of my feet, and the board bouncing everywhere, weight and being fat is GOOD!!!!!!

F2 Missile S, RSSMKII 6.7m, 30Bentonic speed weed

Lechanult Inlet 20-30knts(Bunno port read metre read 32knts all arvo)

Rocked up and all the local fella's were on 4somethings. My brain said rigg the 5.4m but the emlo in me said go the 6.7m.

The wind was solid but the 6.7m was great sailing broad really stable and the power was there. Went for NM,s as my old PB of 31.911 is over two years old.

plenty of YeehaaaaSSSSSSSS on the runs. First run got a 33knt. Changed the set up and got a 35next run. in the end i got a max display of 36.7.

one happy bender

Cant beleive i was hanging onto a 6.7m sail!!!!!!!!!

Congrats to Adam truely awesome workCool

Bender is also going to post some PB's tonight

 

Regarding Hardie,

I caught up with him as he was de rigging and I've got to tell you my stomach is still feeling queezy after listening to him describe the accident and seeing the damage to the board.

We all came seriously came close to loosing a good mate tonight.Frown

The rock actually impacted up near the front of the board and damaged down to around the front footstrap, the fin is gone the fin box is a mess.

When he stood up he was in less than knee deep water, thankfully it was water you landed in not more rocks.

Miraculously the big fella hasn't a mark on him aprt from a 12" wide skid mark running down both legs. So Hardie don't waste your money with lottery tickets you've used up all your luck and a few other peoples dodging that bullet.

What with Robin still of the water from her accident I think we all need to take a bit of a step back as Yoyo puts it and look at our priorities and apply a bit of comon sense to the lines we take.

Thank f**k you are ok

Need to do some public therapy, Indulge me.  Have you heard the saying "How do you make God Laugh? Just tell him about your plans!"  Well I had some plans today!!!!!  When he/she saw me heading for that run deep into Hardies she must have thought,.... the fuckwits gonna hit that rock and he's gonna break his neck!! .........and It'll sour the whole GTC thing and Hardies Run, ........I better rescue the fool, OK slip out of the harness, here you go I'll rotate you through the air and land you safely.........for This time.......... Now learn from it you Dufus!!!............ I can't rescue you all the Time!!!!" 

Thankyou Huey, Thankyou God..... Thankyou to the Universe........ Whatever.......... I missed the 40kt Club, but also missed being an in-patient at the Quadraplegic Ward as well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hardie, I'm very glad you're OK... I'm also glad you went for it, the only way you'll harpoon that big white whale is by giving it everything.

Crasher I'm a total fuckwit, but I'm alive to tell the story of my shame, and walkin around on my 2 ugly feet, feels pretty good I can tell ya........with what might have been. However I do feel I did let the team and yourself (leaving me the gear) down a bit, thank god for Adam and The Craw.  I just wanted it too bad, took a stupid risk to get it, and discovered a very dangerous ROCK, I aint goin near that place again, unless their is a full tide.  I'm going to have to reassess my obsession about this 40kts thing.  Maybe I'm gonna be happy being in the 39kt club, alive and not in an electric wheelchair!!!!!

I've just had a look at Hardies data and worked out how far his freckle flew

These are the 1 sec readings

* 33.421 kn
* 33.454 kn....17.19m......Oh sh1t Rock!!!
* Colision
* 32.373 kn....16.65m......I'm flying Oh ssssshhhhhhh11111111tttttttttt
* 29.220 kn....15.03m......Oh sh1t I'm still flying, here comes the water.
* 3.09 kn......1.59m........F'ken big Hardie sized splash
* Hardie laughing hysterically in stunned disbelief that he has survived in shin deep water
* 36 sec to walk back 21.8m to gear

I reckon the Big fella flew approximately 40m from impact to impact. It was a good one
