5-20kts patchy E with lumpy moguls from yacht racing.. Belmont Bay (Slipways), NSW, AU
6.6m KA Koncept - RS4 ( 111ltres) - 36cms Drake pointer
then 6.2m OD - RS2 ( 90ltres) - 33 makani weedy
Not a very enjoyable session. Just couldn't find the right combo. I was overpowered in the gusts with the big kit and getting bashed about like a aircraft carrier in 30' waves.. I wasn't game to go off the wind much in the gusts so had to use lulls to get back to the launch. Got the 2 sec on the big board.
Rigged the smaller kit but by then it had got really patchy and died a bit. This was great in the gusts but I was hoping I wouldn't fall in the lulls and get stuck out there. Last run into shore was ok.
Only did a few runs.2 runs on the big kit and one on the smaller..
Note to self- don't sail Belmont when the yachts are racing and when the gate is locked..I had heart palps before I started from carting gear up and down..
The guys made it look easy..Probably should have just put the smaller sail on the big board and put up with the moguls..
Jeff, Lyds , Murray, Steve ( local guy) then later Byron.
