Team Ginger out to GI for a nice day in the sun
Severne Overdrive 6.0 on a iSonic 90L - good early but when the wind and tide came in got a bit choppy

Port Douglas, QLD, AU Ed and I snuck out from the wives for a quick blast down the beach = More than 20 knots when we arrived - so I rigged 6m Gator with lots of downhaul and Atomiq with 38cm fin. The first hour was survival mode =lots of time spent trimming the rig - then the wind just completely dropped off = just when I was warming to the task. Most disappointing sail - just like yesterday. Hopefully tomorrow will be an improvement.

Well that was an experience of sorts!! Late afternoon sail- no doubt the roughest and windiest conditions I have ever sailed in at Holloways... SSE strong winds with gusts up to 30 knots! Bailed out before someone or something got broken... didn't even last an hour!
Can't complain too much though- it has been a great long weekend of sailing with plenty of time on the water.
Re-gripped the NP X9 carbon boom that I snagged off Andrew this morning- it has come up a treat! Thought I had enough spares to put together a recon'd boom head, but looks like I will need to source the boom cuff & maybe a lever to complete the refurb.
Used Severne OD 6.2 Futura 122 BP Sabre 42.5
