generally patchy 5-15kts SW- SSE came up to 18-20kts plus for a while Coal Point, NSW, AU

 7.5m Gt Turbo- Rs4 ( 111ltres) 43cm makani weedy

Started out nothing in front of Coal but nicely powered and a good angle between the point and Marks Pt. Some nice runs and worked my way upwind and then it kicked in..Scary run back downwind , back leg screaming and feeling like I would be flipped over the front..

Rerigged the RS2 ( 90ltre) - KA 6.6m Koncept ( could have used the 6.2m at first) 33 makani but by the time I had it ready it was over.. A bit peeved to have missed the best wind..Undecided

My friend Theo turned up. He used to sail a wally and he's now got a 125 Tabou rocket and new sail that I'm helping him get used to . It wasn't ideal - very patchy and too light for him to get going much but I got going in the gusts and it was nice to have company.

Anyway all TOW is helpful..Wink

 Lyds went past as I first went out. Jeff came up on the foil as I was rerigging. the stronger stuff would have been ' interesting' on a foil..

Marmong Point, NSW, AU

Southerly that was good at times . 10-15 knots and 18ish in some of the gusts.

Exocet RS4 Loft 7.8 ,37 Vmax for a few runs. Then the wind dropped again so out on the NP Al foil, Mistral Formula and 6m Retro.

Not too bad a sail/foil . Cluffy and John out as well.
