Had fun introducing Old Salt to Yunderup.

Swindy was flying around when we got there, but wind had already swung WSW and was up and down. So rigging choice was a bit of a lottery. I went with the 53 and 20cm 55deg weedy. I knew it was shallow, and the floaty board would be good in the lulls, but going with the 6.2 was probably a mistake, because I had to sit a couple of gusts out, and there wasn't enough in the big lulls anyway. 

Getting out in a WSW was problematic, square to the wind aimed you right at the small island and shallow water, so we tried downwind and around the bottom of the island. My 20cm stainless leading edge came in usefull here as I scraped along the bottom. I think Old Salt shortened his 23 to a 21, and had to do a bit of walking.

But once in the flat stuff it was loads of fun. The gusts increased the chop, a bit too much, for me to try a very overpowered speed run. I was bouncing out of my harness too often, which was nerve racking after Wednesday's effort.

After lunch dropped by Fangys to hear tales of much better speeds than we got. So I hope this site comes good soon and we can see what happened.

Fangy's winter cold front sail, standing around in cold water waiting for gusts.  Noticed both GPs's off, I think I only turned one on which ran out of battery, and switched the other one on about half way through the sessionYell.

2 sec 39.266

5 x 10 sec 33.471 = low bec only got half my session

1hr 0.0 only half session

Alpha 0.0 = didnt try

NM 0.0 = didnt try

Dist 7.163 probably less than half recorded

 

Edit:  I had only been in the low 36's till my fastest run.  I really wanted to back Johnski up as he told he he'd got a mid 39, and I'd only managed 2 low 36's, then I did a string of 34's thinking It;s dropping out, then craig lunny tells me he's seen a 39 peak on his gps in a squall, and I'm feeling like a mere mortal againEmbarassed.  I thought be patient wait for a squall and also time the run so the water's at it's flattest.  And bugger me dead, I did exatly that, I was heading into shore going faster and faster, and i had to pull out before I crashed on the bank, or for sure I would've cracked 40kts.

Posted numbers from GPSResults,

Sunday morning sleep in and I left it to the hardcore mobbers to do the morning shift. When I wandered on down at lunchtime there was an assortment of GPSTC peeps,  but the highlight was catching a glimpse of the rare basking seal “Hardicus Floppicii. This seal is known to generally haul itself out and hibernate for the winter, so to see one this far south on an autumn day was a special treat. I guess it was attracted to the bunting and sparkles from the Sludgefest that had apparently been going on since sparrow’s this morning.

 

 I had been hoping to see the Clash of the Queens between Johnski and Sludge, but the hype around this fight turned out to be more interesting than the biffo itself. As far as could tell there just seemed to be lace doilies and cups of tea with pinkie finger raised. I went and parked Commandantmobile up by the BBQ’s just in case someone thought I was involved.

 

Luckily a couple of Pesky Pinnas had arrived in the form of Remery and Lunny and the two them went down and parked next to the tea party and settled in with no hint of embarrassment.

 

Some other rare things I saw today. ‘Ken dropped a gybe for the first time since 1996. Fin made a sizeable dent in the estuary. Be aware that when you are as threatening to a set of bathroom scales as a Daddy-long legs spider, making a dent in the estuary requires a tremendous amount of cluster#uck to make it happen. 

 

And finally Elmo appeared and killed off the last of the breeze. There was some hope that the muppet would crack out the foil for the post-sail entertainment, but sadly the mortal enemy of muppetising; a spasm of common sense plus a chinwag with Stroppo materialised instead and left us all a bit disappointed. 

 

To sum it up, a lot of chin wagging, plus a splash on the Barge, in a gusty, off-season breeze sort of Top Ten Fangy Day.

South Yunderup, WA, AU     Pat SL100, KAR 6.3, Swoody 22 speed.

Got to Yunderup quite early with a view to getting a decent hour. Wind was a bit nw when I got there so took my time rigging and waited for the wind to swing a bit. Headed out on my own expecting Mike and Slugger to show up shortly. I had made the perfect sail and fin choice but the board was a little big in the stronger gusts. I had three great runs all the way down to boombas and back and was keeping up a pretty good average speed. Unfortunately on my fourth run down the wind decided to drop out and killed my hour attempt. Shortly after Mike and Steve from one more knot headed out to join me. The lulls were getting longer and lighter but some of the squalls coming through were increasingly cheek clenching. I was hoping to get 100km today but decided to give it a miss as I didn't want to get stuck down boombas if the wind dropped right out. No fantastic numbers but the best sail of the year so far for me. Love them big long runs.

Didn't get out as early as planned but on the water by 11.
Thought I missed the best of it but still some fun to be had.
A couple of good little runs into the corner.
Sailed till I was too tired to sail any more. 
I knew it was time to call it when I fell off on a jibe. ;-)
Some good chats to the guys before and after sailing.

    Peel, fangys,  WA AU.   

Wind was up and down, water was chopy, but sailing went well with some good gusts.   

OK, lets see wats hapnin .    Nothing,! I got robbed, thought I had some good speed, like 36 nots werth, but fone logit showd 35, aah 34.9999,

but Results said 34.82 and comes out as 34.66. Yeh, one of thoughs days, things doing wierd stuff, ha haa.    Tongue out

  

    

   Apparently, the best wind was early and I got there a bit late. So started of on the bigger board, f2 SX-R58, to keep me floating in the pokets,

and the Ka kon5.8 for the gusts , and 45/26cm weedy. Got my top speed on that. When the wind settled and became bit more consistant I got

on the 48wid board. But the gusts had eased of a bit too, so no extra gain on seeds. All good fun in the end. Had a bit of a stak going into a gybe

a bit fast over chop, at the very start of it, and dismounted grasefully with a rotation over the boom and sail, but landed flat on my back.

      Leaving that big dent.  Somebody noticed, I think,??    Surprised   Laughing

Fangland, Warp 6.3, Missile 49, Vector WS23@50 Awesome day on the water with a few of the Mob. Arrived at 8:30 with wind already on the flat water speed run I used the 92ltr Patrick to check conditions and almost got blown off the water then changed down to the missile and spent the rest of the day waiting patiently for squalls. Saw Pas go beyond the sound barrier on the biggest gust of the day (need to get your GPS checked as that had pb written all over it) and the master at work as Hardly sailing put a 39 on the board before making a hasty retreat. Fang man turned up and called me a knave whatever that is I have no idea. Got onto some good gusts and got the heart racing then did 2 alphas on the Patrick which turned out ok and time to call it a day. 2sec 39.47 @ 24.5

The rest of you wood ducks obviously did not know that today is world slow sailing day. I pronounce myself the winner by a big margin.

This is very bold of me as I have not yrt seen any other results for the day.

Mostly under powered with my 5.8 koncept and over finned with the 24 fangyfin.

Speaking of finns I did notice Paz completely disregarding the spirit of the day. As did everyone else

Big session today, drove for 2 hours before ending up where I started. Harding Road with a GAF westerly. Airport 33-43 knots, harbour 0-35 knots mostly zero at the distillery, huge chop and gusts everywhere else on the harbour.

Interesting as it the same location that I have 3 over 100kms this year. I have sailed 1180 kms in 16 sessions, only one of which was less than 2kms!

Added Doppler reference.

Steve, he just deleted them by posting his comments!

I don't feel so bad now about sitting those squalls out, if Roger had the same size sail as me.

Thanx Mike, I had only been in the low 36's till my fastest run.  I really wanted to back, Johnski up as he told he he'd got a mid 39, and I'd only managed 2 low 36's, then I did a string of 34's thinking It;s dropping out, then craig lunny tells me he's seen a 39 peak on his gps, and I'm feeling like a mere mortal againEmbarassed.  I thought be patient wait for a squall and time it so the water's at it's flattest.  And bugger me dead, I did exatly that, it was heading into shore, and i had to pull out before I crashed on the bank, or for sure would've cracked 40kts.

Awesome work guys on a great day of sailing..... Im not surprised you are smashing it on the leader board. Well done!

 

And thanks again to Decrepit and Swindy for showing the gem of South Yunderup on the morning run before the tide came in. And I'm stoked that Decrepid only pipped me by .05 of a knot on the 2s!!! Im slowly getting quicker.

Thanks to Stretch for the pre sail commentary that made me pull my finger out and make the long haul.

And dont worry Fangy, Dangerous Dave and I will definitely be back to learn a whole lot more from you guys in your back yard!! and a bit of a chin wag too!

Nice to meet everyone. Cheer fellas Cool

PS can someone pass on the message to Elmo that after the last run when I was in Mandurah, at Point Grey where it looked like imminent death was likely for missing the dinner date with my GF from overstaying on the water with no chance of getting home to meet the restaurant time, the gods threw me a lifeline and I got stuck in the traffic jam because of the Bunbury fires...... and was able to offload the blame on the road closures and didnt make it home until after 8pm!! Woo Hoo! redemption and hence able to use that credit at the next time that the conditions are so good that I just cant leave early Laughing
