5-12kts SSW - SW Canton Beach, NSW, AU

I should have stayed at home..Frown The forecast was for 15-19kts and I was looking forward to some nice long runs to up my distance , hr etc..Undecided

7.5m GT turbo- RS4 ( 111ltres) - 43cm makani weedy then 24cm FF

Andrew  (DD) on his 10m and RS6 were going well when I arrived. Seemed to die even more as I launched?

Spent 3/4hr dredging up and down.. a few puffs got me planing ( 11kts) but nothing after to keep you going..overcast , cold , rain later.. came in and waited 1hr hoping the wind in Sydney would come up to Canton. Sucked out by a puff but still RS.. Finally got a few gusts to 13kts but the board felt glued to the water??? Found out the fin had a bucketload of weed on it as I'd been subplaning into the shallows and dredged up a lot..Frown

 Came in and put the 24FF for one run but then I'd had enough...Wayne was launching and I thought he would go nowhere but the minute I was packed away it seemed to come in and he was flying..Yell

I'm impressed by the tracks..at 4kts it took a looong time to make them! Wink
