Decided to head to Liptons straight after work for the morning. Was the only one there till Greg showed up for the arvo shift then a very undecided Hardie was rigging as i left.
Some good gusts to be had but the high tide and chop took more potential away.
Funny how the first few runs felt so draggy compared to the foil.

First time at this spot where friendly locals shared their tips on weed, crabs and stingrays. Was under powered most of the time but enjoyed the flat and turns. Manta 88 NPV8 6.7 wp25

Great to get out with some solid breeze. Was pretty gusty and wind was dropping off. Good to see Boz out milking the conditions and Woody showed up after his session at Coodanup.

Pelican Point, WA, AU
Arrived at Pelican Point about 2 pm and looked windy. Rigged up a 6.3 Ka Race, 64 cm WindTech with 32 cm proto fin.
The runs upwind were nicely powered and I restrained myself from bearing off in the gusts. Great discipline.
But when I arrived at Point Walter for a few runs the wind dropped to a gusty 5 to 20 knots and wherever I sailed the gusts seemed to be somewhere else.
Tried to get some runs but eventually gave up and headed back to Pelican. Somewhere near Majestic point I got an ok run amongst the yacht chop.
Frustrating sail but great exercise.

Fun little mission down to Liptons. Got down there at 11:30 and Craig already had 60 kays on the clock
It looked fresh, and Lunny recommended the medium sized board, so I rigged the M112 + 7.0 TR9 + 33 Tribal WS combo.
Had a great sail. I thought I'd finally managed a 25K+ alpha, cos they felt hell fast, which they were. Unfortunately they were also hell wide! I had a 25.3 @ 65m
Nice to get on the board for May, cos April was a complete non-event!
