Lake George, SA
Yet another fun day on the windy, weedy lake.
Got out on the water at about 3pm, but on other peoples gear. Checked out some different sails and boards for a few runs.
Then rigged my brand New 2018 5.0m Koncept. Looked nice in the grass. Had some runs on the speed board. WOW! The changes we made for this year really shine, in this size especially. Super nice feeling reaching and upwind and especially great drive downwind. I was really chuffed to say the least. I dont think there was any more wind than yesterday when I used the 2017 5.4m, but today I was consistently faster, and the feeling was much nicer. Now I will have to see if I can get a 2018 5.4m as I skipped replacing this size this year.
The first run was the fastest. After that the wind seemed to ease a bit, but came back slightly at about 6pm. Wind graph at Robe showed the same pattern so I don't think we were imagining it.
Wind Solid 25, gusting high20's, maybe 30 a few times briefly
Lots of speed runs but didnt try for anything else. Maybe tomorrow.....
