Well I managed to get my tasks finished and get a sail in, really pleased to do that as an easterly in April is unusual I think. Jeremy texted me saying I should go with this set up just as I arrived. OK, looked on my trailer and no 430 mast: I did not need it last week ( 35kt forecast) and it was in my shed. Home and back in 15 minutes, rigged and on the water 20 minutes later. Morts had said he hoped to have a reasonable hour and the conditions looked ok so I went for it. It was forecast to be 18 kts and maybe ocassionally it hit that. Lows would have been about 13 kts.
I cannot sail next weekend, hope it is great here for you Shane and Jeremy.
Went for the hour and could not get quick gybes from the mistral/fin combo. But it is quicker across the wind than my JP54/MXR24 and I am happy with the hour. No dropped gybes in the hour. NM shows it was not windy, same combo which I did a 34 NM a couple of weeks ago. Mst base was about 7mm from front. Need to try at front i.e. covering slot tomsee if that improves balance.
Good to catch up with Morts and Shane, Shane was flying across the wind when I drove parallel to him on my mast retrieval expedition.
That makes 9 top 5s for the year as I added a top 3 hour. I have had a great season so far.
Hour started with NM, unfortunately I did an off the wind blast at the end after the hour finished. Wind was always gusty, it dropped a bit after the first 15 mins.

Very marginal for 7m all day however, got away with sail by using very large fin. Could really feel the fin flex in small chop but water was flattish. Geoff and Chris had a good sail with me and couple others who were skunked by lack of sail sizing. Turned out to be a nice day:-)

Very nice bonus 15-18 knot Autumn Easterly, with a decent tide to enjoy with Shane & Steve. Ribs still not 100% but weather was too nice to pass up
