Boggy Lake, SA, AU

iS107 / 7.0R7 / 39 Select

iS117W / 7.8R7 / 42 VWS

iS117W / 7.8R7 / 43 Select (pick of the combo's today)

Was meant to be another Lake George trip (for a crack at distance) but pulled out last minute. Sorry Tim.

Boggy was a blast though. Only light wind, but a chance to tune the light wind gear and sail with the usual mates. 

Too much fun!

Well Chris. I wasn't going to post this, but since you need to convert your post I will. Henley to Semaphore 9km downwind race ("hen2sem"). I came last. Completed in approx 90min. On JP 102 Freestylewave with the straps out. MUF 26 Slalom fin, and my Ezzy Cheetah 5.5. This combo was a disaster. Sail did not talk to board :(. I should have rigged the 5.3 wave sail. I gave up trying to plane 2km into the race. A 9km downwind race not a good time to start experimenting. Forecast wind 15-20kt. Reality: 0-10, with the occational 15knot puff. Inside very ON/OFF, and the Henley Beach shore break was murder in 0 knots. I also invaded a "little nippers" Surf Live Saver race at Grange Jetty. Thanks to my parents who watched on and their thoughts and prayers.

Day 1

A distance session was the plan but the wind had other ideas. I arrived to see Toby and his mate coming back to shore so I rigged large with the hope that it would fill in.  I had a few nice runs to try out the Lessacher Duo Weed 36 which I bought new 5 years ago and haven't used.  It did everything well and had no problems planing through the thick weed on the surface.  When slogging through the weed it would build up a certain amount and then jump over and dump the bale.  Ended up taking 3hrs to sail 30km.

Great work Grand Master. There’s nothing worse than an underpowered ocean downwinder!! A top effort given the conditions. Well done.
