First windy day at the windfest. Was difficult to pick the right sail from a long distance  to the course and with the big wind forcast. decided to take the smaller set, 7m on a 97L isonic. my favorit combo but a bit under done at first for a while. however, when l was going it was very nice so, l just tried to enjoy myself as l did too. Very pleasant arvo at Burrum.

12-20kts SSw - S Buff Pt Budgewoi Lake, NSW, AU

7m M1- 87ltre isonic - 21cm FF ( cutdown 24FF)

 then 7m - 80ltre isonic - 21FF

Had a lot of waterstart practise today..Wink

I thought about  using a 16 kestrel so I could stay in the flats but it would be too small for the 7m and be spinout city..so I tried a new combo of the 21cm FF ( cutdown 24). 

 It meant I spent more time out in the chop as I wasn't as game to use as much of the flats but it was brilliant in the chop! Spunout once coming back across the channel but I was tired and not sailing very well.

 I'm surprised at the alpha as yesterday I felt I was doing some really good gybes but not today...I went for a nm but was underpowered and it chose one with a gybe in it.

 Getting quite good after lunch and could have changed down but I'd had enough by then..

I got some drone footage this am.. Thought I'd make it a bit more interesting for viewers by doing a big powered gybe wipeout in the chop..WinkEmbarassed

I really enjoyed going for it in the chop with the FF.. Anyone who knows me knows if I have a delta type fin on I just putter upwind in chop and don't even try to plane or push it..Love the FF..Cool just wish we had a 16cm one that could hold a 7m..Frown..still that is expecting big things..

Michael, youngens , Geogio, Matt , Paul ( later) and a few others?

Good session there Sue, kudos for the top speed on the  day, and out in the chop at that!

Looking forward to trying out a cutdown 22 ( to 18-19 cm) when the patterns arrive...hopefully soon. In the meantime, where's the video? Laughing

Thanks George. I've got some drone footage of you..and you didn't stack your gybe in the  chop Wink

Got the 2 sec in the flats but the FF made the day fun! I've made a little video from the footage..waiting to see if there is any more of me in the google drive link.

I might make another short video with other people..

Some drone footage of me from the day. I'll try and get a video edited of the youngens, Georgio and Michael and post it on the Budgy cup page but it may take a while..I've been sailboarding too much and it's time to do some work..Wink
