What a 1st days sailing for 2012 at Boggy Lake. Early start with Sam. After a wine and a quick dip to cool off the wind slowly picked up. Sam had 2 fishing rods set up and in a short time had snagged a big one:-
Then i caught my 1st fish ever followed by second one and then the biggest of the day:-
Between us we caught 6 in total and 6 more for us to not hit. After this the wind had picked up to 15 - 20 so we headed out. A short time later the wind cranked to 20 - 25 with some 30 knot gusts. I have for a long time wanted a 37 knot peak at Boggy 1 and after glugging after Sam had taken off i got hold of a 30 knot gust and it pulled me hard downwind. At the end of the run i thought it was a reasonable peak and saw 37.74 (this was 10 sec) on the screen and then flashed off and displayed 39.01. Very happy with this peak through the middle of Boggy Lake. At the end of the day we saw a tiger snake in the middle of the lake Sam warned me after seeing it and i almost run over it and so did he.
Boggy lake - 20 - 25 knots with occasional 30 knot gusts. PB for slalom board and peak, average and nautical at Boggy 1.
Isonic 86 / 6.3m loft racing blade and 29cm s07.
P.s Sam you still got me on the 5 x 10 - we should have kept going a bit longer and nice alpha - i had a 24 at 100m - too wide - you were cranking on the 7m as usual.
