JP Hydrofoil 135L, NP Fusion 6.7m, NP RS Flight AL

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 hooCool

 

Video to follow.

Green Is,  Light to just moderate at times.  used a 7m.  Beautiful and pleasant sailing.Cool, Couldn't keep up with the locals Kelly and Cam, they're out of my leagueEmbarassed.  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 CoolCool

Realising how unfit I am, the boys sailed 3 hrs no-stop, my gs said I did 47 mins, and i had multiple stops.Embarassed  If I can be disciplined enough your gonna see a lightweight hardie this summerSurprised

Red n Fluffy, I only saw one run which was a ripper, super impressive. I got a few photos but got side tracked once home, you were too far away even for the zoom but I'll crop the crap out of them and post tomorrow Wink

Hey Hardz, fat's fast, don't throw away your edge Laughing So happy you got to play in my old back yard, bugger the conditions weren't great but there's always next time. Go down to southern end Yorkey's Beach where all the coconuts trees are for a look, that's my old speed strip Laughing

Looks like I need to take a bit of trim adjustment out of it as it was struggling to clear the wet stuff.

Need some Rainex on the lense as well.

Still learning, still lots of fun.

Ernest, the touchdowns are getting disappointingly less spectacular. In fact whole thing is starting to look slightly under control. The special audio effect of foiling tinnitus  at 15knots was a nice touch, but think of the ratings man, give the public what the want, crash test muppet. Sigh, where is the Ernest Sparrowlegs of old..

(Dont let anyone else see this - but your improvement each session seems exponentially better! ImpressiveCool )

Decrepit - the problem is you haven't seen Elmo with a sail that small when there are not leashes blowing off dogs and white smoke on the water!

Looks fun Alby. I reckon flat water foil jumps could be something to master
