Liptons, unsailable because of weedbergs, everytime of got onto a good gust was nearly catapulted on each run, note to self, don't sail Liptons unless weedbergs clearYell

Fangyland with TeletubbySludge, Cap'n Calm and Toby. Quick little session between responsible parenting duties. Rumour has it that the wider Teletubby (2) did a body drag through the weed bergs a few days back. The resulting channel was fab fun on the vintage Mistral Flow,KaR7.1, FF22.

Post more later.

 

Cap’n Calm was working his way out of the Nairns end when I arrived. Conversely, the breeze was working its way in, and so I got a little over excited and chucked in the ‘little’ board. This board and the FF22 just go together so nicely, I ignored the fact the Cap’n Calm and Toby were going to be on site. A deadly duo when it comes to calming. 

I didn’t have enough time to faff around so I stuck with 7.1 which meant getting out of the hole at Nairns was hard work, and generally I was only ever comfortable in the gusts. On the flipside, charging down the mini Luderitz canal through the weed made up for the all the grovelling in between. 

 

T1 provided some entertainment by doing his best to dent the estuary for no apparent reason, and all up, a good social outing and a Top Ten Fangy Day with the boys.

Felt like a winters day in my shorty wetsuit!!

What a fab channel through the wind! Will be great if we can channel out a bit more downwind! then some mega speeds will come!

Had to come in a bit early as I could'nt feel toes!!! or Fingers

Nice to catch up with the Mob!!

Glory Holes, Australind, WA, AU. FF89/GPS7.3/Vector25/ChocoWS27. Wasnt really happening for me today. Started by pulling out the 6.0m only to discover a panel had completely pulled away from a batten pocket, never seen that happen before! Then went out with the Vector 25, was underfinned and took a while to get back from my nauty, particularly with the wind shifting to the wrong direction on every gybe. Went in, put on the Choco 27. Then I blew a harness line, in again for new lines, but sailing in sans lines took its toll and with the cold conditions I didnt last too much longer. I will say though that Glory Holes weed/water conditions are probably better than Liptons or Fangy's at the moment. No weedburgs and just enough weed to keep the water nice and flat. The Vector25 was no problem. The 27 was starting to stretch the friendship a little, but if you kept speed up throught the gybes, it was doable.

Well that's a change, actually got it right. Rigged the same as the other day, on a rising wind. The 6.2 on the 53 with 20cm @55d had me planning most of the time, and was just short of being maxed out in the gusts, had a few tailwalks, but managed to hang on.

Wind was more westerly today, so that magic channel through the gybe markers was more downwind, not quite optimum for me powered up, but going through the weed would have been slower.

It was hard trying to work out where to do alphas, the wind kept changing on me and I typically ended up to low, but I did manage a couple when I finally worked it out.

Tried a NM, started good, but ran out of wind 3/4 of the way down, so it's got a gybe in it.

But it was COLD!! I think the wind must have come straight from Antartica, had to call it when I started to loose feeling in my hands.

 

Just checked the channel length, it easily does 10s, but here's my best 500 today

fangy's channel 500m track

 

Looks like I got a bit adventurous and headed into the weed towards the end of the run, to go a bit more downwind, and it seems to have paid off

Thanks Mike For chopping off my drive.

Cold wind with lots of holes and some big shifts. Had some good fun runs when it did blow but on the whole a bit frustrating.

Looks like I havent learned my lesson and still parking in the ocean. Seems im not the only one with this problem.

Looks like me not coming down worked. Wish i had now, safety bay wasn't very good today. T1 told me he was busy at work this week. He must have started early.

Sick times right there king stretch! I think the break from windurfing brought you a new found hunger to smash everyones times around you...... then again.... thats just what you do isnt it?

Impressive 2s and Nauti, us mere mortals have much to learn

 

BTW, no stealing our new team member too. Dave turned him to the dark side early on Tongue out he's showing some strong times so far!!!
