10-20kts Sw-SSW few patches 20-25kts Canton Beach, NSW, AU

 7m M2OD - RS2 ( 90ltres) - 33 makani weedy

 1 run Rs4 (111ltres)- 24FF - 7m

 Just Milsy and I. Bumpy but not too bad max 10" - 1'. Bit washing machine like close to shore because of washback. Ranged from sedate to flying and feeling like I was riding the fin ( surprising for that big fin). Max 25.5 on that combo. Too choppy for speed.

 It seemed to be dying so I came in and put the big board on. Of course it then came in c 25kts! Surprised Hanging on for grim death..A trifle concerned that I only had a 24cm fin in as the chop was about 1ft but it went great. Obviously faster than the weedy . Got the 2 sec on the big kit..

 i came in thinking it was going to get strong but it settled so a few runs back on the 90.

It had veered more S- SSW and the gusts were a handful so I called it quits. Couldn't be bothered rigging down.

Pete and Pugs arrived and were setting up. It kicked in 20-30kts and Pete was overpowered and the chop was pretty big plus you were forced out into the chop more so I don't think they got a sail? B & J conditions..

 I'm buggered now but at least I'm tired  from sailing rather than the wog..Undecided
