Lilacs Mistral 91SL TR16 7.0 Pepeweed 27

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.

Boggy Lake, SA, AU

SSW 8-16 knots Fanatic 112-Loft Blade 7m-BP 45cm

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:-)

Oooooh firie you would have enjoyed it out there for the hour. Wind was not strong but it was great fun. To give you an idea of how good it was: my sail got et when I came in: I accidentally splashed it getting off the board. Mid week up there looking promising.

Nice going with the alpha and hour Morts: both top 5s Cool

Thanks Steve, that's a pretty damn good hour in the conditions Smile

 

Cost myself a bit on the hour by not starting with a NM but reasonably happy with that & the Alpha.

As Fangy says numbers close across all 3 of us. it was great to be on the water with sunshine and wind plus at 20C it was a warm one for albany considering the season and wind. A spread of jelly beans, good numbers and sailing with good mates. How good is that!

Nice session guys. Good posts first day of month toCool

I'm returning to work, starting back on night duty as from Monday which usually means I will not be sailing much. Has been great 3 months worth of holidays (Jan/Feb/March) having sailed a combined 2,880 kms. Will see if I can get motivated on my days off to go sailing.....

Looks like that sub 100km session was just an aberration for you PJ Wink Nearly 3k of distance during Summer is very impressive!

 

Night shift is no fun but I've found going for a quick sail after your last one can help with resetting the bodyclock Smile

Quite good work with the crayons you lads. You have all kept within the lines, although Mstr PJ you could experiment with your colours a little more. Keep up the good work and you may graduate to your pen license next year.
