Futura 101, 6.2 OD, Keefy Delta / Gav Slingshot

Bit of a frustrating session with the wind on and off and some issues with gear. Great to get out though and awesome to see so many punters out.

OD 6.2, Falcon 99l with KEEF weedie, 25cm Dezza edition, then Falcon 79l with the CRAIG COLE Signature 16.5cm fin, custom made for PRIMBEE

 

There was a lot of excitement over the last week about the forecast for today, helped along by Stu's new facebook group, Illawarra Speedsters where the excitement built further, so much so that Gav packed his car yesterday, and Tony Polony was worrying about spare undies. With the ABC news last night forecasting the coldest day since records began, I was having second thoughts but Tricky Dicky convinced me that windsurfing today was a must. 

I mucked about a bit today so no exciting speeds logged. Took the 99l on its maiden vogage with a brand new KEEF 25cm weedie from the Dezza series. It was so shallow in the water today and I was a worried about damaging the new fin, so came in to change down to a smaller fin. Looking forward to trying that board and the new fin out in deeper water.

Keef arrived and started rigging at 11.34am.

The wind picked up so pulled out the 79l Falcon, and put in the CRAIG COLE Signature fin, custom made for PRIMBEE, that was perfect when the gusts came, great for the shallow water, but even that fin grounded out a few times as the tide went out.

Came in around 1.30, Keef was rigged by then, and busy helping people with small fins. 

Went out for another run but had got cold, so pulled back in, packed up and came home for the best hottest shower ever.

Another great day out on the water with the gustbusters and people from the other teams. Hope we get a few more westerlies in weekends over next couple of months.

Great day on the water, all the usual GustBusters and Illawarra Speedsters suspects and some, with guys travelling down from Sydney (I think half of Double Demerits Crew!) plus guys from both Albury and Wagga.

Wind didn't quite kick in as forecast, but nevertheless it was a good sailing day. Very very shallow again which was a bit concernong at times!

Started off with my AtomIQ 110 and later the iSonic 87. On raw data plucked 29 knts on the AtomIQ and only a little better on the iSonic (31.6 raw data). Both sessions I had my Sailworks Retro 6.5 on the No Limitz Sumo RDM mast. Handled it all well apart from the biggest bullets when I had to just put hte sail in the water. By that time I was stuffed anyway, nothing left in the tank. The best thing was the adjustable outhaul, as it made nice simple and quick retuning on the run available, which was pretty good as the wind was all over the place, being a Westerly...

Oh, and I left at 4pm, Keef was derigging at that point. He has a special coating on his sails that make them look like they didn't even get wet!

Excelent Mile Tony!

arrived a bit late and a touch unmotivated as the wind wasn't as predicted , rigged the 6/4  and tuned it a few times and then time for lunch

good to see Dezza matching it with the guys with the 6/2 and testing the different boards and fins on such  a chilly dayWink

Brilliant numbers Tricky and Gav - I'm in awe of your efforts! Not sure what was happening today with myself, just wasn't in the 'groove'. Boom seemed to be too high, harness lines were either too long or short (and were set in the wrong position), booties for the first time felt strange and I'll give the gloves a wide berth next time.

Need to get upwind a bit more so I can take full advantage of the 'bear away' without running aground too. Oh yeah, me needs to get me the right fin too (and stop scabbing off my mates) Embarassed 

All first world problems I know! Great to be with a superb bunch of guys (and gal) regardless...
