AB+95 Tribal WS29 NP Hornet 6.2, NP Hellcat 6.7

It all started with a BANG...

I shrugged my shoulders in a nonchalant manner and proceeded to derig the 6.2 and rig the 6.7. Yes the mast, POPPED then POOPED its self.

In the end the 6.7 was the right sail for me on the day. Steven Christopher and myself out with 3 others (Ratz) in the area but not where we were. 

We had some runs to the northern end but as the wind direction swung getting home was a pain. Some squalls coming thru with a hint of rain mixing it all up.

Steven was able to wet the 44 Luderutz Special and she wet him frequently too!

Chris had his 3rd play in almost as many days and hes a happy chappy. Great to have him out and enjoying the wonderful weather.

The water was a bit rough for going real fast (for us) but we certainly had a good time out there.

One pretty rough but cool day!!

Chris rocks up with more windsurfing gear than I have ever seen slotted into a ute tray!! Classic! Made me smile before I'd even hit the water.

Dave makes the opening statement with a big snap, within the first 20m of sailing!!! Yell masts!! huh who needs them anyway.

Next I must say, Chris....WTF is up with your watch?? it clearly doesnt work properly, lets get you a Canmore. I was definitely pacing you at nearly 24-25 knots and I definitely know that you sailed at the very least 20km......so those numbers are looking pretty dodgy to me.

And yes I did more board changes today than I have underwear changes in a week or so Undecided but I just wanted to try out my Falcon 44.... even if there wasnt enough wind.... I did get it up and going for a bit... and its going to rock and roll when the wind is a bit more consistent. Winds up.. come in change boards...wind dies...change boards...winds up...come in change boards...wind dies.....i'm sure you've all been there.

But Im not talking about the quick interlude with a walk of shame.... but that happens on a 44 when the wind decides to disappear!! doh

Isonic 87l, NCX 5.5, Tribal ws 23.... then for a little Fanatic falcon 44

Missed ya blitzing past us Stretch!

Glad you had a good sail guys. Wish I could’ve made it, it was one of those rare days that I (grudgingly) did the responsible parent thing.... Falcon 44 sounds nice Steve, I want to check that out😛

We missed ya stretch man. We really needed some of your ‘follow me if ya dare’ direction. I feel for ya about the responsibility thing. Just think Red Toothpick!
