That was a nice outing on the foil. Wind picked up more than expected.

Great funSmile

Cruisey session with the captain coming down later, sporting a flash new sail. She seemed rather pleased with the acquisition. Quite marginal conditions for my kit but it was sunny. Definately a top 5 for the monthCool.

Quick sail at Safety Bay - it has been a long time since I have sailed there. A few locals out and it came in enough to be nicely powered on the 7.7

Melville Beach, WA, AU iS111, 40CF, 7m Koncept

A bit of a late session at Melville, 8 - 14 kn - perfect conditions to try out my new acquisition - a 7m Koncept ex Sailquik. I would have been there earlier but finding the couriers office was like trying to find a particular flea on a dog when that flea is hiding out under the armpit. It was a tiny office at the back of one of many buildings in a huge freight complex with only a small sign at ground level to identify it. I had almost given up, when by a process of elimination (and determination) I found the right place. Then it was off to Melville to see if there was enough wind for a test sail, which there was. The best wind was of course during the half an hour it took me to extract the sail from the many shrouds of protective wrapping and tape that it was encased in. I think Sailquik must have done an apprenticeship as an Egyptian mummy wrapper. Luckily I had some scissors in the car and the local rubbish bin had plenty of spare room for the wrappings.

The sail performed beautifully although there is much tuning to be done. It had me planing until the wind got very marginal late in the afternoon, and gybed, rotated and tacked without too much effort.

Thanks Daffy!

It was good to catch up with Tim who finally brought a big enough board to plane in the light wind, and to meet Tom, a very recent emigrant from the UK who is loving the warm conditions here and was interested in the GPSTC

SSW 15 knots, tiny swells but still big enough to downwind with the foil - awesome fun with Simon.
