Fun for the second day. wind was less than forecast, sailed 10-1230 then came in hurt shoulder (nothing serious) just decided to spend avo with family, also broken batten. Batten fixed already, could have changed to 7.0 but called it a day.
Really pleased with gybing ont he 45 except when there was too little water.
Great to see Morts happpy with his numbers, Shane had a bonus sail.

Reposted using Realspeed (what I normally use).
Lilacs dawn patrol, well 7am on the water is close enough as we had to hit the road to return to reality by lunch.
Wind was a bit more easterly today and a lot more consistant, so I though time to get naughty, worked my way up to the start and let fly, nicely lit the whole way, could even get right down to the corner (getting out was a bit interesting though).
Did another couple of Naughty's and changed down fin, discovered that this fin with the 7m when it's blowing is a pain in the arse to get up wind son I had a 'ken long walk up the sand bar to the launch spot, eventualy got there after butrning of a few calories in the process and set of down the course, mid 33 naughty ooooooooo tis nice lets do that again.
Cut lunch and water bag later I'm back up the top of the course on my Pat Malone and after shifting the mast foot back yet again set of, this run Talky is talking dirty to me the whole way down the run 37 37 37 38 36 etc woo woo we is on a stonker with only one mishap where the fin let go near the end but recovered quick, caressing talkies button gave me a little chubby when I saw the numbers for the run.
A couple more runs then a dismount near the end gave me a god reason to pack it up. As I'm typing this the wind had picked up a couple of notches, so I thunk there shall be some very nice numbers coming from the Coastal crew, Stretch, Decrep and Evets who are still out on the water.
List of Naughty's today
35.347, 34.498, 34.161, 33.765, 32.79, 31.958
Looking at the runs slow starts and pinch up wind at the end, oh to have more water

Boggy Lake, SA, AU
SSW gusty 15-22 knots-Patrik 92-KA Koncept 6.2m-Techart weedy
Hard slogging at times through cross chop (normal Bogggy conditions). First time on this particular board and rides and gybes okay.
Heaps of people about. Lots of talking before going out had some port with Carl and Sam but I think I sobered up too fast when finally hit the water lol!!
Anton from Central Coast Marauders gave him my gw60 for 48 mins and recorded 33.16 peak fyi:-) (I managed to edit his track out, when I thought I had deleted it before start of my session. What a colossal pain to do! as only use ka72)
I was more adventurous today in going to southern most channel on western side and a drag through the channel on the eastern side in a big gust. A weedy was absolutely needed for this. Great fun:-)

too buggered to right anything coherent at the moment, too buggered with a big smile!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OK home now with a proper computer instead of that dead slow ancient laptop.
What a great weekend, not optimun but this place can be a long way off optimum and still be loads of fun!!!!
I just went with Saturdays rig, 43cm board 17cm starboard assy 50deg weedy and 5.8 Koncept.
Basically went for NMs before lunch, then tried a few alphas after lunch. Tried to improve my 5X10 but I was going slower every run, don't know if wind was dropping or I was just getting too tired.
I was interested to see just where my best NM run fitted onto my track, so supperimposed the GPSVisualizer track on top of the GPSResults window.
When the water is deeper, you can start the NM higher up the sandbank (bottom right) and go a bit further into the far corner.
