SP - Life is Good - 30-40 knts - Day2
Same senario as yesterday pretty much, 5.30 wake up, 7.30 on the water!!
After yesterday sailing, I changed couple things, put a bigger fin on and use 5ks Lead. Struggled to launch the first run but still done 40.5 on it, then 2nd run 42.. and then the magic number appeared on the screen at the 3rd run.. 44.02 . with a 42.6 10 sec run
Everything went sweet, but that was it for me, my goal was achieved and did not care about the rest of it. I hurt myself yesterday and really cool me down, did want this to happen today!! Yes I cld have done a pb on 5x10 etc.. but was happy to leave it there.
Funny story behind this 44 is when I left WA i write on my left hand a 44 on it and kept it there all long (lot of people asked me what this was and I told them about it), it was my vision, what I wanted.. when LG forecast died off I though whats the go? usually I get what ask for!! Then Sandy opened and it happen.. So happy to get it, I knew I could do it, just needed the importunity
Sorry Mr CAM I could not slow down, I know what you are thinking "Bastardo" ah ah ah

Firstly congrats SAMMY!!!!!! 44 on the dial, very nice.
Fangy emailed that Pepe had 6.3 and 7.1 KA race sails for sale. Pepe offered me a trial run on them, I wasn't sure how I'd go water starting them in the deep.
Wind was about 10 to 14knts so I tried the 7.1 on the 53 with 26cm 45d weedy, as tide was reasonably up at fangys and weed almost gone. sail felt very nice, nicely balanced with this combo, and very pleasant to sail, gybes as easy as the smaller sails.
Water starting it does seem possible, although I didn't get much deeper than waist. So Pepe, looks like you're on.
