Had a great Friday afternoon session with my Mate Ed.  We both knocked off work early and headed down to Fournile full of expectation.  I'd been watching this weather front for a whole week, fingers crossed. ,and it delivered.  Ed had rigged his 7.8 m Gaastra no cam and was running it on his big 117 isonic.  I rigged my North s type 7.8 and put the 44cm freeride fin on my Atomiq 120.  the tide was nice and full but there was plenty of run.  Frist 45 minutes gave a nice breeze - I had the rig pretty well cranked down - getting some nice cruisy runs on this grunty sail - trying to remember how to sail again.  Then a squall came through and things worked their way up into the early to mid 20knot range and Ed and I got blown off the park - lack of condition and being way overpowered.  I was pretty happy with my effort - I'm getting more confidence and being overpowered on big gear - having the three cambers seem to make the sail easier to handle than your no cam rig - makes it a bit more stable and transfers the power smoother - I also found that the rig was easier to handle in high wind with a bit of belly in it rather than pulled tight.  Ed and me are going to watch the weather and try and fit in a Saturday afternoon session - MetEye seems to be suggesting winds in the 15-20knot zone.  WELL WORTH THE EFFORT.

Port Douglas, QLD, AU..Quick afternoon sail with Andrew wasn't that windy so rigged 7.8m gastra did a few laps with 117 Isonic wind freshend up so jumped on 105 Fox for the rest of the session..Haven't sailed for awhile so felt a bit rusty, wind was up and down the whole time with a couple of squalls coming through..had the tide from hell running all arvo so had to stay realy hard on the wind the whole time.. Turned in to a bump and jump session  in the second half with some wild wind shifts ..all good fun on the Fox...Andrew sail very well and was happy with his effort..cheers ED..
