East Bay, Osterville, Cape Cod. Nice to get one of the rare East days before there are too many boats on the water. With a little north in the wind, it was not a good day for alphas on the far side, where the wind was very up and down, but mostly down. Got lucky and caught a longer gust one time when the jibe was also halfway decent. On the plus side, the wind came through nicely on the other side, so I ended up with a spot and board PB (FF99, BPWS 38, RB6.3).

Tested the bluetooth GPS again today, with two GW-60s for comparison. I noticed on the water that one of the watches did not get one of my 31 knot runs. Looking at the tracks at home, I saw that there is one segment of 50 seconds without any data, and more missing data for a few more minutes after that. That includes two runs were the other watch worked just fine. The bluetooth GPS (with a ublox 8) worked flawlessly, tracking 17-19 satellites during the top speed runs, vs. just 8 for the GW-60.

Lacey Township, NJ, US   NEN wind, Feels 24-30 knots. iSonic 90L., RB 7m., Tribal weed fin 27cm.

Lounch from Laurel blvd, Lanoka Harbor. Good spot for freestyle, terrible for slalom gear. I was overpowered in the middle of the bay, and should switch to 6m., but I didn't have it. Goodbuy Laurel Blvd spot, I am not going to go there again.

Great session Peter, proved your Blue tooth gps is the way to go!

And just looking at your numbers, I feel sure you'll blow your 2s and 5x10 PBs out the water, if you get a good session on one of our speed strips.

When is the commercial version coming out? One with big display that can be mounted on board. Like Velocitek Speedpuck.

Mike, the flight is booked! East Bay is fun, but the smooth area is less that 200 m long. You have to put the brakes on as soon as you get fast. The only speed spot I know where it's different around here works well about 3 days a year for about 30 minutes. I can't wait to see what speedsailing feels like at Fangyland, Liptons, Lake George, and the other great spots you guys have.

Boro, don't hold your breath for a commercial version, I don't think it will ever happen. But making your own bluetooth GPS is pretty trivial. You could mount your Android phone on your board if you want to .. if you get up early enough, you can pick up a few for $10 each at Best Buy the day after Thanksgiving.

The Wall ( Pinna Proof Fence) is not a problem Anita, Peter will have Diplomatic Plates so they will let him through. He should be easy to spot, and I have told the guards to be on the look outfor someone trying to drive a car from the passenger seat on the wrong side of the road.Tongue out
