3rd session on the pink bits, this is so much fun.
Very light today, had to wait for the bullets to get going.
Gave Bob a bit of a laugh, not so many dismounts today compared with the previous session.
Bit of tuning on the trim foil made things a lot more stable in flight but a bit harder to get of the deck.
Best run +40sec's flight time which I'm stoked with.
Even did a couple of touch downs which didn't directly result in a wet ending, though I did overcompensate on two of them.
Unhooked on a couple of runs which helped a bit, and managed to pump onto plane whilst getting into the foostraps during the pumping, tis tricky for unco-man.
Great fun, woo hoo
Video to follow.

Green Is, Light to just moderate at times. used a 7m. Beautiful and pleasant sailing., Couldn't keep up with the locals Kelly and Cam, they're out of my league. So great to be away for winter, wish I could do this every winter for 3 to 4 months a year. Probably only going to do one more week, then the big drive back. No big winds forecast, so don't expect any great speeds, though even if there was a 30kt blow, I garauntee I'd be nowhere near as fast as the locals, we have it so easy back home. Saw some massive whales breaching on the way home that was a highlight, and Cam's lovely wife C/Katherine wonderful meals, retaurant quality meals every night Thankyou
Realising how unfit I am, the boys sailed 3 hrs no-stop, my gs said I did 47 mins, and i had multiple stops. If I can be disciplined enough your gonna see a lightweight hardie this summer
