Second Creek, Tumby Bay, SA, AU
Finally had a nice day and cracked 30kt only just but over 30 for a few runs.
OES Outlaw 105, NCX 7M, REFLEX 5.6, 22.5cm BP Delta, 29cm GS Weedy, 33 Select S07 with 18-25 and a bit extra in the gusts NNW.
It was a super low tide so with plenty of shallow water and tape weed on the Sth side and Western of the channel. So started off with a 7m NCX and the Delta. It all felt heavy but got it up to 26ish kts. Then changed to the weedy and was lining up for my first run and with a battle between booties, back footstrap and an ill timed gust the NCX died a very quick death.
Bring on the Reflex and a few good runs with the weedy which got me through the 30. And I figured if I stuck to the Nth side and didn't go to far west all would be good. A few runs and a couple of adjustments and I had a 0.3 improvement in speed.
Finally had a day where the wind was fairly consistent in this spot. Its a shame the run is only about 0.35 long. It would be good watch someone that knows what they are doing have a go.
