Mandurah, Peel Inlet, First decent seabreeze of the season about 15 to 20kts, Tabou Manta 74/54  TR16 6.3m Delta 20/55.  Liptons, Weed and weedbergs everywhere, so played it safe and used the delta 55 degree weed, but no lift, no speed, and no upwind ability.  Body went into lactic acid fatigue after 5 mins, from all the heavy physical work of the week.  Feel like a whinge but I'm healthy, alive and windsurfing, YAYCool

Forgive me Huey for I have not sailed for far too long

A pleasant sail in mild conditions with Ross the greenkeeper and T3 aka Paz.

While the numbers are a little sad I did a lot of work on over the handlebar dismounts . Few of you could match the grace and elegance that I bring to this unjustly neglected artform.

With general fitness at 1 of 10 and sailing fitness at 0 today was hard work culminating in a downwind walk of shame to get back to derig .

As something of a slow learner I will be back for more and am hoping to get a lot more sailing in this season.

Guess we made the wrong call today. Forecast was saying wind wouldn't get far in land, so Hardie, Toby chef and I braved the liptons burgs. Things looked good around lunch time, wind was a bit ahead of forecast, which was due to keep picking up and peak quite late.

So to start rigged a bit small to suss out the PT Grey burgs, (new 48, 5.4 with 19cm 55d deltoid), and hoped to be nicely powered when the wind picked up. Well the first part worked, I found that I couldn't sail through the thicker burgs, and the mud underneath is very black, very smelly, and gets every where.

The picking up later thing failed to eventuate, water was too shallow to get into the real smooth, and the wind died there anyway.

Should have joined Fangy and Pas at fangys.

Fangyland golf course weed.

I was really keen to try out my FangyFin22 today, and so I took a punt on the intended combo Koncept6.6 and vintage Mistral Flow. The result was that I was under done for most of the day, but when I did have enough breeze  the fin was perfect for the 6.6. The fin cut through the bergs with no dramas, went uphill happily, did not misbehave in the chop and was really nice on the downhill too. The old board was fab to gybe too, I can’t wait to try it out in a stronger breeze :-)

 

Even when I was plodding along, I had some dolphins come and play. Unfortunately, the glare off the water has made the video of no use. I found some nice bits of water to play in and I will post some snippets of video later.

 

Great to see Basil and Fin out and about. A beaut warm Top Ten Fangy Day.

 

 

 

The nauti run - nothing interesting, just to give an idea of conditions today.

 

 

 

 A nice little patch of clear water to U turn in Laughing

Boggy Lake, SA, AU

SSW 16-26 knots-Patrik 100-Koncept 6.2m-S11 37.5cm

Unexpectedly STRONG optimistically went with 7m first up with a death run downwind back to base. Rigged 6.2m with plenty of downhaul which was just manageable. My last run back was balls to the floor!

Mike and Jacko showed up both not bringing smaller gear:-( Jacko suffered a big off, damaged his hand but survived:-)

Tried out my new GoPro with the 7m combo and was more worried about losing it somehow than sailing propper. I'll get it sorted, grrrrhhhh.
