Had one of those days.Frown Riged the 5.5 and broke the camber. so had to go with the 5.0. Then went to put a fin in the 47 and didn't have any screws long enough so had to go with the 41. Really struggled to get up wind to the flatter water. Finally got there and the wind stopped. Stayed for a hour then had some rain squalls and managed to hook a few gust but they were short bullets and changing direction. Then had nice crash at over 40. But other than that had a good day. Smile Great to catch up with the boys again.

I made a last minute decision at midnight to do a Lake George day trip, packed by 12:30, up at 5 for the 4.5Hr drive. I was pretty sure there would be some S.A boys there - lo and behold we all converged on the 3-mile turnoff at the same time.  We decided to sail off of 3-mile as it was meant to change more westerly as the day progressed.

It looked solid 25 so I headed out on my comfy gear to have a cruise and maybe do an hour if it hung in there.  I explored around the Islands and then found a nice line for the hour and went about getting in the zone.  Conditions were fantastic for cruising back and forth, not super fast on the 112L board but super fun.  I did 85km non stop but fluffed a few gybes and got off a few times to clear weed which probably cost me a 25 hour.  I headed in before the change for a snack and to get the small gear ready - good timing too as it hit about a half hour later with a few guys stuck out on big gear.

I went out on the speed gear but struggled to keep on the plane in the gusty shifty winds(& weed) so went back and plugged 5m in the 112 and did one run.  Probably would have been better to have kept up the 6.1 but I packed it up so it didn't blow away in the squalls.

It was great to catch up with Hamma, Sam, Carl & Tricky and to meet Hoppy for a fun day on the water - just like old times!
