Not up to the forecast but still a nice day. Big sail, not fast but planing almost all the time. RS2, 7.7, 28 weedy

Coal Point, NSW, AU. Ezzy 7.5 Simmer 120. Bummer. Got too excited about a good early NEr. Just never happened. Got some planing runs before it died around 3pm. Good practice trying to plane in sub 10 knots. Crazy Andy stayed out way long than made sense, on ya mate. Lots of frustrated spectators.

5-15kts ENE Budgewoi Lake, NSW, AU

 7.5m turbo GT - RS4 - 38cms BP 50weedspeed

then 87ltre isonic with 20cms BP50weedspeed

 then RS4 with 20cms BP50 weedspeed

I wanted to try out the new TurboGT. My shoulder handled things pretty well but I certainly noticed my lack of muscles and fitnessUndecided..I can probably get if a bit fuller butgeneral feeling is it doesn't have the off the wind grunt of the OD but it is so beautiful and light!! It feels like my 6.6m Koncept. Usually I really notice the weight of the big sails subplaning and also find I have to get it just right gybing due to the swing weight etc.  I hardly noticed the weight of the 7.5m subplaning. I didn't really get it that powered up but very happy so far and I'm looking forwards to trying it in 10-15kt in the chop on Lake Macquarie whic is what i really bought it for..It should be fun! Tongue out

 Got the 2 sec on the big board. looks like my only decent gybe of the day was too wide for an alpha.

I only did a few runs on the RS4 and decided to try the isonic to see how I went with the big sail.. Wasted the best wind coming in and changing. By the time I got out it was mainly 10-12kts so only a few runs and then back for the big board. Changed down to the smaller fin so I felt safer going in the shallows/ flats.Although I was never really fully powered I was surprised at how well the small fin hung in with the 7.5m.Smile

I find the larger volume tail on the RS4 harder to dip the leeward rail. The Xcross had a pintail so it was easy..

The drake straps were a better shape after I took Lyd's advice and put some rectangular sanding blocks in them to help the shape but i hurt my toe due to not enough padding so I'll buy at least 2 dakines for the rear straps and have some comfort.

 Mastfoot got stuck again- Thanks Pete! I'll try my modern one next sail and hope that fixes the problem.

 Milsy , Mick , Pete , Bill , Tibor , Bruce ( got the Rs2 planing in c 10kts of wind!Surprised ), Norm and a few others..

JUst trying to build up my fitness and get my technique back again..UndecidedSmile.

What a shame...for me that is!....Took out the wrong [small} sail and was lazy to change it. Had the 7m up while most everyone had the 7.8 ish sails..shame because it was a pleasant day if nothing like they have forcasted...of course it was still a lot better than not sailing except that l didnt like not planing when everyone else did... GOOD on THEM!!!

CA70 and 7.7m then out came Godzilla. Normal story - looked great and then dropped the minute we got on the water. I floated around for a while and was rewarded with 5 minutes of wind

Congratulations on the 9k Sue. That's a great effort for only a few years posting especially with a few long injuries.
