What a cracker of a day a solid 17-19 knots for the hour then a few 22 knt gusts for peak. Told Hoppy I had a top 5 Hr, even with 3 crashed jibes , not very often I am that confident but the Isonic 86 Loft 6.3 & FF20 were on a mission!! The sad part was in the first 15 min I hit a oyster basket & went from 28knt to ZERO over the handle bars in a spectular dismount super big splash down degre of dificulty 10 & the sad part was Hoppy didnt even see it Fany Fin unscaded Tricky big grase on leg & will be sporting a big bruse tomorrow All in All as Fangy quotes Top 10 Day
end note : The fany fin has has the living S!@t knocked out of it & it still as a smile on it dial, crushed another 100 razor fish today but I think its time for a touch up sand paper job, probery needed it before but this is a NO BLING Fanny Fin & I am realy enjoying it

Dialed in today for a good afternoon blast. Got up top early, when it kicked a bit harder sending most for their fives/fours. But I stuck with the six and ended up sailing really comfortable for two reasonably long sessions. I came in to shore tired at the end of day, and saw 94kms dist. So I turned around and ground out a few more laps to make the tonne.
Happy blasting, all day long - chasing PJ (also steezy on his 6m) and Leon. Luby, Kristian and a few others rounded out a damn fine day on the water.
Keep waiting for the doldrums to squash it all, but until then - I'll take any TOW I can get.

Fun 1st day this season at the Golden lake with Sam and Chris D and some other interstaters - great to meet you all . Sam and me discussed team srategy on the 3 hour trip down but none went to plan . Arrived to not alot of wind so did what we do best talked S#4t (Tiges from Pit crew fitted well in with us - we had a great time ) whilst doing the bogan thing . Chris D headed out on 7m and then the wind started filling in. Kato was out the whole time on his distance attempt.
Already decided on the 6.3m gun sail gsr and 87 Patrik and 31cm black project weed speed 31 so rigged up and headed out.
After the first 2 runs i could straight away tell the 1 hour wasn't going to be easy with swinging and gusty wind. So pretty much just went with having fun. Found it hard to really line up a gust and the 40 degree weedy wasn't heading upwind well and was grabbing the wind and slowing down on speed runs. Meanwhile Sam was ripping it up and managed a 40 on second run - well done mate.
After a couple of hours we decided to head in and wait for the wind to pick up so we could complete a hour and mile but it never happened.
Hope to get down again in some real wind...
PS. Thanks for taking me Sam another great day trip - hope we can do it all again soon...
Thanks Tiges for the Vector speed weed 25 that should come in handy and the great laughs and all the other interstaters for the laughs and making it a memorable day at one of the best spots in OZ.
