windy at the bottom of lake but not in flats underdone but still sweet just wanted 5 knots more and then it would be epic.

used the 6.2 in the middle of the lake. got through the high channel was
low tide but wind wasnt realy running dwn were it was real flat, more than
enough on the way bak up wind & acroos to coaly, some big chop to & not many

12-18kts SSE -SE Lake George, SA, AU
6.2m - 87ltre - 20cm FF
then 38cm BP50weedspeed
Under rigged.. Looked at Robe stats and it said 14-19kts ( great 6.2m! ) looked 5 mins later 14-16kts.. Oh well I'll leave the 6.2m on as it generally kicks in better later...It finally got good after 3 hrs on the water..
Got a 20cm demo FF to try. Fangy said it needs to be powered up to point and i knew it wasn't ideal but I figured the shallow fin would get through the weed better..
Not fun..It went well in the few powered gusts but there weren't enough of them and I struggled to get back..I'll try it in a powered up 80ltre session..
Put the 38 BP50 weedspeed on.
I didn't intend to do distance but I had clocked some up so kept going. That's the most solid sailing I've done..4.30hrs with only 2 stops of 5 mins to change fins and eat something..
I hit bottom about 4 times mid gybe and went over the front..didn't hurt myself though..
Sailed from 2-6.30..I thought I couldn't go much more but I feel ok today.I was the lst one left out on the lake so I thought i had better come in in case something went wrong..I'm not sure if it's getting flatter or it was just less wind but the lake is getting nice and flat..
Think I need a fun sail..I'm a bit over pushing myself..
