Sometimes its hard to tell whether its going to be a good day. When I arrived at Fangyland the first feeling I got was one of depression, mainly because Sludge had parked the Mr Whippy van on my spot. This despite it being clearly roped off with rainbow bunting and blow up unicorns in each corner. It appears that for some reason the Sludge thought the spot was marked out for him. Go figure.

 

I then got a headache trying to figure out where I could park the Fangy Staff Car given the paucity of suitable real estate at S bend. To make matters worse there appeared to a few Pinnaroos on site as well. Eventually I managed to squeeze into a strip of grass and then, while I was looking for my tyre slashing knife set, the hottest chickie babe on the beach came up to the trailer and asked me if she “could have a long screw”. 

 

Top Ten Fangy Day right there.Laughing

 

So then it was simply a matter of chucking in the Party Barge, FF24 and Koncept 7.5 and enjoying the rest of the day. Which I did in spades, joining Sludge, Cap’n Calm, Fin, Swindy, Lunny, Windxtasy and Jonski for some groove in the smooth. I managed a few squirts on the Barge which is always a blast when the big girl gets up and moving.

 

I had a moment of anxiety when I noticed Sludge trying to get in behind me. In an effort to  shake of his amorous intentions I decided to take him for a splash in the chop. And bugger me if he didn’t follow me over! I almost fell off in surprise when I turned around and he was still there, but to give the blighter credit, he hung on like a limpet until we were back in the smooth.

 

I took a quick Nanna rest and had a chat to Farmer Swindy who had decided that the whole area needed ploughing and had whacked a FF28 into his tractor. Trying to make things easy for myself, I decided to follow him upwind back through the weed and let him blast a Mariana Trench through it all. This tactic worked brilliantly for about two or three metres, until I realised that Swindy had so much lift off the FF28 he could sail directly into the wind. I got smoked like a side of bacon.

 

 

Having learnt my lesson I just mucked about and spent the arvo putting a smile on the dial. Blue skies, fair breeze, good company and stacks of groove in the smooth, defo Top Ten Fangy day. :-)

Great day at Fangys with Sludge, Luny, Ian, Fin, Swindy, Johnski and Windxtasy. Didn't get skunked today, was a nice change to plane back to S Bend.

Wind was less than forecast though, I set up both the 48 with the 19cm fin and 53 with saltynuts filleted 20cm, and rigged the 6.2. Plan was to change to the 48 when the wind picked up. It would have been a tad faster in the last half hour, but wasn't worth changing at that stage.

Salty's fin works much better now it's filleted, but isn't a good fit in the 53, I was getting a lot of weed under the front of the fin. Must get the repair of my own finished.

Decided to rig big and try th FF28 on the 120 for the first time, I thought it would be way over finned but it worked realy well.  Was hoping for some better speeds than I got but draging an A 380 Airbus tail through the thick weed was never going to be fast. Others thought they may take advantage of the big furrows I was ploughing through the weed to make their run easier but the unbelievable height I was getting upwind put a stop to that. 

On of the Bunny boys, sorry Bunno boys was there along with a couple of pesky pinnas. Good to see you Craig and Anita, and the usual crowd of underemployed Mobbers, myself included, and hard working Jonski turned up later. 

Another great afternoon in the sun with a great bunch of people.

Lumpy goodness Novara styleCoolCoolCoolCool

Couldn't see anybody sailing at Liptions as I went over the cut, decided to head further north and give it a gentle tickle.

First proper hit out in a long time, took a while to figure out how to set up the gear as I haven't sailed this way for almost a year.

Novara has changed a lot since the last sail, rigging area is all freshly laid grass the chanel marker seems to have moved further out.

The sailing was awesome a bit religious lthe same as what everyone else had but the large rag made up for the holes. Had to do a bit of dialing to get the set up better for dealing with the lumps and bumps and the muppet between boom and board, but once sorted it was great fun.

Gotta have me some more of these sessions me thunksCoolCoolCoolCoolCoolCool

Edit: Gotta change my mindset about windsurfing this season, or I could end up a very bitter and frustrated manYell.  Lost an hour when I had to stop to tighten my slipping boom grip and then snapped the boom grip rope.  Had spare rope with me but I couldn't get the old rope off.  Eventually got it sorted but you could imagine my mood after an hour of f#*king around getting frustrated Yelling out LoudSurprised.  Then I had to remind myself that a young woman at 20 years of age contracted meningitis and she died this week, that is a truly shocking tragedy, and i'm a bloody lucky bastard to still be windsurfing at 57Embarassed

 

Post numbers later that's how enthused I am about today's session, gusty, no where near as forecast on windguru for Mandurah, they have been way off this year.  I'm still rigging for last years conditions, haven't learnt to discriminate that this year is different with lighter gustier windsEmbarassed Mistral Spped 95/55 TR16 6.3m Pepeweed 22/48

Noel, a PB and a jellybean, nice session mate!

And Fangy, wasn't brilliant conditions for the hour, I'll expect more from you now, when conditions are good, (when is our next strong ESE?)

Nice pb's Fangy and Otts.

"Could I have a long screw?".....better than a self-tapper I guess.  Great stuff Fangy.....and the usual good read.

Thanks Fangy. I have never been referred to as the hottest chicky babe on the beach before (as far as I am aware). Being the only chicky babe on the beach was to my advantage of course...

I don't make statements like that to just anyone you know...

Congratulations on an hour PB. Proving your stamina? Close to 3knots per hour better than mine.
