Playtime at The Pit  Laughing

25-30 w to wsw but very gusty and hard work at times. It blew when going up wind and dropped off going down the course.... thats my excuse anyway. Wink

Did the 4hr round trip to Melb to pick up a boom then off to Sandy for a sail , so a few Ks in the car.

Ran the 6.6 for a bit of fun,then unrapped the 5.8 for the first time. Speeds peaks will be on the Ca40 but spent most of the time on the 6.6 as I'm stiill trying to unlock its potential

Ca 40, 5.8 Koncept, Ka/Loc 23 assy

Sandy Point, Vic.

A great day in the PiT! I started very early at 12.30pm just after the initial change so I could have a sail with Peter J. He had to leave early and did so just as the wind kicked the first time. I got my best run just as he got in the car to leave at 1.50pm. Poor timing Pete. Frown

I started on the 5.8m and JP 70L slalom. Not really that well powered and gust, shicty wind.Just as Peter got off the water at about 1pm, I switched to the CA40 speed board. Struggled at first but then snagged a nice little squall for a 41 peak speed. Then it backed off a bit for a while. A few others atrted turning up and I was getting tired. Thinking the 5.4m would make it easier and might be faster, I changed. Got a few nicie 39's, but still underpowered. By now there was quite a crew out but I was fading fast. I went and got the JP slalom again just so I could keep going as it seemd to fill in better all the time. Hit the wall on that on a few runs at 38 knots. Now shattered and had to give up after 4 hrs. Cursing my lack of sailing fitness. Been too long between drinks.

It was all the more disapointing because I could see the wind was getting better and more consistent at a better angle. Sure enough, the Yanakie weather station showed the best period of wind from 5pm to 6pm, just after I quit. Undecided

Good to sail with Peter, Kato, Tiges, Kempster and all the others. Pity I could not have stayed longer. I am now motivated to start an off water fitness program. Laughing Congrats to Tiges and Kempster on the PB's!! CoolCool

A quick sail as I had to get back to Melbourne. Great to blow off the cobwebs and catch up with a few of the crew.

Tiges, if losing your mojo means getting a PB, then feel free to "lose it" often! Nice one. Cool
