Liptons CrankinCool, That's as good as it gets for me, sailed on the flattest water, admittedly a bit draggy because it was so weedy, but one run after another 40kts/39/kts, senfuckingsational Cool, got a bit dopplered on the 2 sec, but wrapped with my 5 x 10 I think thats my second best ever?Cool

Fangyland with a heap of peeps. Greg K from Lake Mac, Jase from the Pinnas, Millpond and Shane made up the travellers who joined the usual suspects from the Mandurah Mob and a couple of Coastal Nannas.

 

Vintage Windtech, Koncept 6.6, FangyFin 20. Today the plan was to try and get comfy on the Windtech. A bit more breeze made a huge difference and I was able to get the nasty old girl up on the dance floor. Don’t get me wrong, she is still a complete cow if allowed to  dictate terms, but if you treat her mean, she stays in line.  There is no finesse involved, always use all momentum muscle available ( including Xmas food baby)  and always try to snap her in half at every gybe and you can get the upper hand. 

 

With the FF20 bolted in, there was no Wright Brothers theatrics and the bear-aways started to come together and I am very happy with the speed numbers. I got a 39.05 max on the dial which is the fastest I have ever gone :-) I am keen to get some more experience on this board and see how far I can push it. I think there will be a point where she bites back, but hopefully I will dodge it when it happens.

 

There was a reasonable amount of smooth and it was brilliant to share it with a good crowd.(despite the sole Pinna :-). There was also mucho rejoicing from all the peasants as Mr Whippy has finally been deposed as King of Fangyland. [ Insert massive crowd roar and Mexican wave here ]


  Sharing the Helvetica font love for one more day and a big social session and everyone enjoying some good numbers under the belt it was defo a Top One Fangy Day.

Fun sail at Liptons GAF again but still fun, looking at Hardies speeds my decision of playing mostly over at Pt Grey was not the correct one, Oh well twas fun blasting around none the less.

Hit a big sting ray towards the end of thesession over at PG, saw a F'ken large bitey thing as I was leaving the corner the first time just outside of the shallows.

Huge crew out today, parking was a premium and lots of smniling faeces.

 

Huge congrats to all the PB'ers CoolCoolCoolCoolCoolCool

Coodanup, WA, AU. Pat sl 100 kar 6.3, ff22. Then sl87, ff20

Another great summer day at fangys, had Greg from lake Macquarie with me today and put some faces to names of a couple of team mates I hadn't met yet. Good to catch up with everyone as I haven't been out much lately.

First mission was to try out the 22 FF that I had butchered from a 24 and I must admit I made a prett good job of it. It worked great, I got a 24.99 alpha on it and the hour was pretty good to. It did spin out going into a smoking jybe which threw me off and spoilt my hour a bit. A proper 22 with a thinner profile would probably be faster so Ross has promised a new one for the new year.

Next up was the 87 and managed to get a decent alpha and nm and a bit more speed but still struggling in that department. No pb,s for me today but happy to get out and get 3 top 5,s

Koncept 6.2. Sonic 85L + FF20

 

Used the same kit as yesterday & with the bit of extra oomph in the wind my arms were feeling it late in the day!

 

Nice to meet Jase from the Pinnas who judging by his results had a ball at Fangys on his first outing. Great to also finally meet Roger & Jon from the Mob who were out there flying around with the sole purpose of pinching my JB Frown Well done fellas not an easy day for an hour SmileThe whole of the Albany chapter was up here today, Shane sailed Fangys & Steve Liptons.

 

Awesome to see so many out blasting around having a ball & sounds like Liptons was a similar deal. Had a lot of fun just hooning around, exploring a bit more of Fangyland & I'm pretty stoked with the results. My 4 best Alphas were all better than my previous PB & the actual  PB came from my last Alpha attempt. Watched Stroppo & a few others doing the NM trying to work out the right lines. Had 2 goes at the NM & they were both better than my previous PB but I still tripped up a bit going through the ropy stuff.

 

The Fangy Fin 20 was bloody Fangtastic out there today Laughing

 

Oh & there was also a Starboard Sonic convention at Fangys today, wonder how long it's been since 4 of those were sailing at the same place?

Nice to get out for a late session on a hot windy day.  Got my second fasted alpha and 3rd fastest 2 sec and overall 3 in my top 5, so very happy today.  Was super stoked to see a peak over 40 again (40.13). Was worried I had forgotten how so not so bad that I didn't manage a 2sec over 40.  Was also stoked to see the alpha. (some involuntary whooping may have occured)  Took the Manta out first, then the Missile. Was really fun to use both boards and although I got my alpha on the Manta over at Point Grey the top end improvement was obvious changing to the speed board, but I'm not sure how much of that was changing to a better suited fin.  Anyhow, tired and happy now.

Fun to see so many out today. Stopped to look at Fangys on the way, was the bussiest I've seen it in ages but decided I felt like a change and found plenty of others out at Liptons.  Sailed till sunset with Evets and a couple of Pinnas.

Well almost made it, trying for a mid 36, 5x10 today. My best 10s was 36.8, then a 36.5 and 3 35s. I think one more 36.8 would have got me there.

Tried and tried, till I couldn't try any more, wind seemed to be dropping anyway.

 

I went to check out Liptons and found a big crew there, Stretch was out already and flying around, the report was that Boz was on a 5.5 with a 38 up already. Slowboat was thinking about what to rig, Lunny and Slugger were rigged and ready to go, Hardie and windxstasy arrived minutes later. So decided to stay there instead of driving to Fangys.

Thought I'd stay inside liptons and not brave the channel so joined hardie at the first carpark. first off I tried the 16.5@50deg in the 43 with the 5.4koncept. Surprising I couldn't get going in the shallow weedu area, with a sinky tail the fin just kept picking up weed, sending me sideways. So changed to the filetted 16.5 @ 55d, This was able to shed the weed instead of picking it up, so stayed with that, and sailed at the southern end of liptons starting the run in the weed. This was nice and flat, but gusty, and the gust very hard to read, I just had to go for it and hope.

Liptons m91SL tr16 5.9 FF20. Will post some numbers tomorrow. Expect a mid 37 for 2 sec. Left work early and drove the 90 minutes to Fangy’s, it looked choppy so decided to head to lilacs. Forecast on MetEye was for 30-35kts, did not appear super windy and as I heard decrepit was using 5.4 I decided to rig 5.9 Chris Adamson came in as I rigged. He was on 6.4 and put on a weight jacket so I was happy with 5.9 choice. Had great fun sailing both sides of the channel, never really windy so Chanel was as flat as I have ever seen it. Today’s mission was to try the 91SL/ FF20 combo. That went well although I had a number of spin out events when pinching up wind. That is not unreasonable. Also I discovered the problem of a short fin and a wide board when gybing. More than once I tried to turn tooo sharply and had to straighten up to get some fin back in the water. So no great alphas I suspect. Had great fun with Elmo, Decrepit, Oaf and others around. It turned out that I should have been on my 6.3. The wind never got close to the forecast but I still had a great 3 hours sailing. Definitely the most enjoyable sail I have had at Lipton’s. The wind blew and was warm, the water was relatively clear and also warm. Life’s good.

Nice PB Ross and great 2s too! Looking forward to the full print version of events.  Was this the board that had a 12 month gestation? Seems to be working pretty damn good now. Here , in  sunny Longreach, the tide was way, way too low and far away and the temperature way too high.

Fangy - Whoo Hoo! Looks like your fins are fast as well as fun!

Morts - I thought Albany was PB land? That is a super alpha and a really speciall nm, and a very ompressive 5X too.

Fin, that has been a long time coming! Congratulations!

Slugger, you just keep getting better and better. Well done!

Holy "Arial font is only for Mermaids Batman!"  So much PB goodness on this page now. Peasants be warned but not alarmed, it will take some time His Holy Awesome Fangyness  to digest the day's events. Please wait quietly and calmly for the Christmas message from the New and soooooooo much better King of Fangyland....

Were do the Royal Proclaimations begin? Possibly with the most unwashed, Sludge, lest he spoil the red carpet with  a trail of half melted flakes.

Subject Sludge, your deeds seem worthy of high praise today. Sorry, but I am all out. Maybe next time.

Arise Sir Millpond for a royal cavalcade in procession to salute your efforts on the Pond today. One is impressed.

And finally, but most deservedly, Pink Puf the Magic Dragon, who flew for a Nautical Mile before being wiped out by a seagull feather.

Jolly good show peasants. I am pleased with your endeavours.

I should add a note about the Maui Sails TR16 6.3m as I've trashed it so much.  It worked briliantly yesteday, its like a drag car, built for straight line speed and not cornering around a racetrack.  If I want to go fast, this will now be my go to sail in that wind range.
