another nice day today, used all the kit today, went out on the 43 but was not enough wind to have a good sesh so straight back and got the 48, that was better staright away put three runs down 40 ave, wind was fickle from then on, went and got the slalom board then and did a NM and some alphas, was hoping for a 27 but just off, hooked a few more fast runs to knock the ave back up. Wanted to go to Sandy today but couldn't get there, not bad numbers from home, would have gone faster down there but wouldn't have got alphas and stuff. good day

Swan bay... 2nd day in a row... unheard of lately.. Not as windy as yesterday but more consistent. Spent the day on the carbonart speed 44 for something different. Just couldnt really line up gusts with flat water but still good to spend time on the rocketship. 2nd sail on 2016 5.8 Koncept. Yesterday at its limit today at its bottom end. A great sail...

Another great day sailing at sb, went out on my 5.8 and was thoroughly overpowered.
When i got out the banks weren't covered properly yet so i pushed upwind into the top corner of the bay looking for flatter water to try for an hour average. Stayed up there for 50 minutes then did some big bearaways through the chop down to the banks for the end of my hour and joined the boys.
Jacques was rocketing along as usual, nice U-turn. Red has pipped me at the post again but i'll beat you one day :P
Also 160km travelled in 2 days...pretty happy with that.

The ladies went kiting today so I went to Corro. Dark clouds and storms circling which the locals said was totally weird but the seabreeze held. Awesome fun sail with Mark_Australia. I use the word 'with' loosely in that we launched together then he was out the back with the big boys while I played in the kids waves. What an amazing fun spot. Stoked to nail heaps more gybes, partly thanks to the advice of my support crew and partly because they weren't there to watch The advice of my injured remote coach Mr Easter is making a huge difference - thank you!! And thanks to Mark_Australia for the local advice!
