|ODIN (33853km): |
wrong direction wind way too gusty and patchy with sudden wicked bullets coming through , no consistentcy absolute rubbish today and my arms are killing me going through massive lulls and then within a sec 45+kts and then again lull , no stability today .
it was so weird your getting powered up x-wind and still staying on the same run suddenly the wind is right behind you out of no where and you havent either bared off yet , total rubbish..
Stopped early got out and went home , the best call..
good crew out today and good to catch up .
first time on the new KA race and first run was in the mid 40s did 2 more runs and went out did a bit of tunning and the next run 42+ at that point the direction of the wind was better but still not what we wanted but then after that it really went alot west ...
Have to say first impression of the sail was pretty good but still need some trimming to do and in this kind of wind its impossible to trim..
tired also the new tribal speed sym and this fin rocks for my first impression , no problems going through chop and great to get back upwind again , acceleration is instint and very stable , cant wait to get on it again..
