Warning for Liptons, found two broken crab scoop nets with broken handles buried with broken pointy end sticking upYell, could be just a careless antisocial act or deliberate with malicious intentYell, obviously I have removed them.

Great day at a top spot with great guys, Otts, Elmo, Strop, ratz and kitefoil Dave. My best session and the best foil spot so far, I got a few good runs in (for me) but plenty of crash n burn runs also. Still a long way from getting the hang of this but great fun doing something new Cool

A borrowed  board (Thanks Strop), Fanatic foil, 5.8 Koncept, sunny day  and boardies

Hui was playing tricks again, I had an 18kt average before I started to rig, but only a 15kt average after I'd finished, so started off a bit underdone on the 6.2, 53 and 20cm@55, but after a while it liftted a bit and for most of the time there after, was just nicely powered. As Johnski says the alpha markers channel is just heaps of fun, but I forced myself to head furthe upwind for a NM run on the edge of the weed. This was my fastest run, I managed to hook into a good gust for just over half of it, but a hole just after the start had me down to 20kts very briefly. I went back for another go, it didn't have the big dip, but neither did it have much speed either.

John, I don't claim that channel, it was there when I found it the other day, you'll need to search further afield for it's creator/s

We found a nice little clear spot to gybe in, with a channel in and a channel out, unfortunately a bit too close together, probably only 30m apart, so made it a bit hard getting back out with a lot of speed.

AND! There was one weed burg right on the flip point. It wasn't big, but after I hit it and went over the handle bars mid gybe, I thought I warned every body, but Johnski did exactly the same thing a few runs later.

 

Also found some weed with teeth, my stainless steel leading edge is now very serated. Its just off to the side of a narrow channel heading to the small gybe marker. So stay up from the gybe markers.

 

Good fun sail today, with Stretch, Johnski, Fangy and Basil. I think I also spied Birdman playing close to the weed.

It was better with a bit more water, could still have done with more though.

Fangyland fun day out cruising around with the Stretch, Jonski, Cap’n Calm, Basil, and I think, a lonely Pinna, Birdman.

My first inspection of the water at lunch had been pretty underwhelming, but Stretch turned up and brought some breeze with him, so I joined the Mobbers for a splash. Of course as soon as Cap’n Calm started rigging, it dropped off a few knots. That left me a bit short on horsepower for the arvo, but for the most part it was just a relaxing tour of the bay. 

A channel cut through the weed by someone/something ( I thought it was the Capn’s doing) made for some fun little squirts and even when I went off piste, my luck held, and I had no handlebar action, just the odd solid tug or two in the thick stuff. I saw the other guys have a crack at making dents in the estuary with more success,  but I can’t say I felt left out.Laughing

A mighty fine bit of work then Stretch. Good job.Laughing

It will be interesting to see how long it lasts, and whether we can keep it open.

I think you're right Rob, that channel was almost as wide on Wedesday. Fin and Basil may have made it then
