RS4 and 7.0

First sail on the 7.0 not really enough for the 7 but wanted to give it a run. Forgot to take out the spacers so had to completly unrig and start again.

 0-15kts everywhere then 15- 20kts + NNE Peel st Budgewoi Lake, NSW, AU - level c 0.23

7m M1 OD - 87ltre iso - 16.5cm FF ( cutdown 22 - 1st go)

 Well that was the weirdest sail I've had at Budgy.

Took off and very easterly and going too far up into the flats. It felt almost  // to the shore. Then it died.. Then it came back in as a N - NNW - W then E again near the golf club..Obviously thinking about coming in- Norah was saying 18-20kts NE.

I was starting to get a few ok gusts but my spreader bar broke so I came in. Lucky I sailed at Peely rather than Coal today!

 Pugs kindly lent me his spare which was good as it had picked up and settled into a NNE. 

1st go of the 16cm cutdown FF. A good test as the wind direction sent you out into the chop and some of the weed was very thick. Due to Fangy's " I'm not sure how it will go as it's so small "  echoing in my head I  only committed to it  80% in the chop but I think it will be great. Cool

Very impressed - it didn't let go , zipped through some scary looking bergs and the depth is great. I think it will hold the 7m and 87ltre well..More testing due.

I found it hard to get upwind to the top. I thought it was maybe not committing to the fin but I think the problem was the wind in the chop had more N in it and then the flats had more E so you were forced out into the chop to get to the top and I lost a lot of ground in the flats..Choppy Wink for Budgy..

I did one gybe and lost speed. Coming out I went into a megeweedberg and stopped , fell in and it was like a big spongy..??? I had a hell of a time standing up and then walking the kit out to clearer water..

 Pity it wasn't more NE as the flats are amazing..I found it too much hard work so came in eraly ( plus recovering from a headcold.)

 Pugs, Matt, Mick, Alwyn ( amazing! He wouldn't let me help him carry the gear) and others..Paul and Michael foiling further down.

Yep, a 7.0 sail on a 16cm fin that didn't let go - Bingo! I am very happy with that result Sue ! Next stop 100% LaughingLaughing  Out of interest, how wide is the 87 iso?

Its certainly a weird set of tracks too - you can see that the breeze was all over the shop!
