Carlisle St, Safety Bay, WA, AU   Pat 115 SL, KAR 7.1, Trib WS 35 Then KAR 6.3 PAT 87 SL, Trib WS 27

After getting skunked yesterday and the forecast not looking all that good still by lunchtime decided to go out for a cruise at SB in 15 knots. The cruise didnt last long an soon became fairly lit up. Headed in and Lunny and a few others had come down to play. Rigged the 6.3 on the 87 and then headed out for what was a pretty manic 20km but great fun. Thought I better quit while I was ahead as the 5.5 probably would have been much safer at the end or a 4.7 on the wave gear.

Best sail in a while. Lots of happy people



Stretch (11717km):

Coodanup, WA, AU. started with FF113/HSM7.3/MUF24 got 35.5kts with that. Wind picked up a bit so tried CA52/HSM7.3/MUF19, which worked pretty well. Got 37.5 and my alpha with that. Late in the piece rigged CA47/HSM6.0/BP50degWS20 and got my 2S. Tried to splash Slugger are few times, but hes wise to me now and darts off as soon as I get close. Saw an orange sail and thought, great!, I'll get Fangy!, whoops it was Mike (I missed anyway). Great afternoon's sailing with lots out having fun Cool

Looks like I've done a Basil and produced 6 temperary jelly beans, don't think they'll be there after stretch and slugger post.

I finished the temp repairs to the 48 over the weekend, so today was a test to see how useable it is while I build a replacement.

I was surprised at how well a very wobbley bottom works, I guess the wobbles were just out of the water at speed.

After yesterday's non event, I was brave enough to rig for the forecast, which was predicted to pick up.

Plugged the 5.8 and 17cm @ 50d starboard assy into the 48. Nicely powered at the start to well powered at the finish.

Would have been better speeds if I'd changed to the 43cm board, but couldn't be bothered.

The downwind portion of my NMs were just a tad short, started fairly square and finished fairly square, mainly because they started and finished in small chop.

Great fun session with oodles of good company, nice to have a decent breeze in March.

A good sized mob down at Fangyland today and that’s despite Stretch trying to sneak in by using a different car than usual and then attempting to hide it behind Sludge’s Choc Bomb Express. Pepe, Cap’n Calm, Basil, Muffin, Stroppo and Shane rounded out the crowd. 

 

I dropped the Vintage Windtech, Koncept 6.6 and heavily modified FF24 into the drink and set about evaluating the fin.  It was originally a FF24, but I wanted to explore the idea of mounting the foil on a strut. The result is a massive cutout and hollowed-out foil in the base area. Front on the fin has an hourglass profile caused by the strut section which joins the fillet across to the foil proper.

The fin seemed to work quite well and late in the session when the wind picked up I got the chance to compare it to the FF20. The FF20 is definitely quicker downhill in the weed, but on other points of sailing I preferred the modified version. It hung on in the chop like a 24 and seemed to go up hill very happily. The only problem that I found was the bolts loosened and I ended up catching mobs of weed. So at this stage I will investigate the idea further.

 

 

 

 



The other big difference was the addition of a bolt in the tail of the Windtech to hold the floppy tail from flexing too much ( as per the production models)  Removing the flex in the tail made the board a little harder in the chop, but sooooo much better to gybe. I could now safely do a u-turn without bogging the arse. Which is not something you want to display when Sludge is lurking.

 

All in all, disappointed there was no Swindy, but I gots of lots of experimenting done and I am happy with the outcomes. Plus a damn nice sail to boot. Top Ten Fangy DayLaughing

      Fangylang Funy Farm, Peel. WA  AU  

   So we had some wind, I took out the kon5.8 again, and recently refurbished 48 throw-away,

fited with weedy fin with skirt 55/18cm, as tide was a bit low and weed was exposed.  

Gotta say, things whent better than expected,,,, this board dosn't bog down in a gibe as much

as the other,,, 47/43board,,,  more of an allrounder.  I managed to nab another PB,,, happy with that !!!! 

   Cool  

     

  Short runs and manage an hour pb,  need a bigger fin and longer runs, may do better,???  I think.

Yep, poor decision making on my behalf today but was getting bored by lunch and the blue ocean looked so tempting. Though a bit short absolutely flat out in the chop without dropping a jybe was a real confidence booster and scary fun. Glad you all had a good time.

Great stuff guyz looks like my windsurfing holiday has turned into a holiday away from windsurfing. Maybe I'd had too good a season and the gods decided my body needed a break. Have put on at least 3kg and have lost fitness.

 No wonder Mondaurah Mob and CST have won 3 of last 4 GPSTC's we have such consistent conditions, = this applies to me most of all, "Don't whinge about windsurfing in WA"Embarassed

Awesome NM PB there Simon congrats! Cool Though I think you'll find yourself banned again for beating Bazooki Boy by less than 0.05 & snaffling his JB Wink

 

Sounds like a fun afternoon up there, well done all Smile

Our numbers are very close again Simon, probably average around 0.5kt over the 5 speed divisions.

In fact I'm interested enough to calculate it out to 0.3614kts. but you killed me on distance.

Yes Hardie, and not only do you have the most consistent conditions, you also have a local windmeter that hides the existence of those conditions from anyone who does not live locally enough to go outside and see what the wind is actually doing...

and from the photos I have seen of Lake George, Mandurah is a lot warmer and more inviting!

Wow! Another great session from the Golden Estuary and the MMob! You guys have the most consistent sailing conditions in Oz I recon (except maybe for the Golden Lake in January to March Tongue out)

 

Love ya work Fangy. That cutout is very similar to the one on the Lessacher Bull I was suing yesterday. But the addition of the strut is pure genius! Laughing Hand shaping thos fins must be quite chore!! Surprised
