Fangyland cruise on the the Bic Splat. Joined Iain and Joe V and his grandsons, plus a couple of others. It's great to watch Joe's grandkids improve exponentially each time they go out. Grandpa's windsurf supremacy is on borrowed time now! For me, just a short session cos I ran out of go-go juice. It was certainly a pleasant enough way to spend the arvo, but I am really missing the Barge. The Bic is like a Bus. It's comfortable enough, but the sound barrier is around 30 knots and to get past it requires a huge amount of effort and I didn't have any energy in reserve today. A sess on the Bic adds to the anticipation of the arrival of the WT287

Liptons bit of fun, Mistral Speed 95/55 TR16 6.3m Pepeweed 22/48, lots of people out having fun, except I heard Pacey damaged his board on a metal pole? (needs to be removed)
|Decrepit (48612km): |
Another fun Pt Grey sail, wind was a bit light, but forecast to increase. So went with 5.7 KA speed 53cm board 20cm@55d weedy.
This worked well, bigger board got me through the lulls and 5.7 was fine in the gusts.
Pt Grey was working well, plenty of smoooooth with good wind on it. the compression band was lining up really well with the flat water.
Had a few speed runs, but found myself sucked into alphas, enough wind on the smooth to gybe in dead flat water, most of the time. But a lot of the time the wind after the gybe dropped off, and it took a while to accelerate, some times I even got backwinded just before the rig flip. But I couldn't resist trying for a 25, but it didn't happen.
That's reasurring. I'm miles away from Hadrie's rock

liptons JP55SL 2018 TR17 6.3 Pepefoil19.5
This was the best sail I have had at Liptons, thanks to Elmo for assisting with ferrying my new bord from WSP to Mandurah. I decided my venerable JP54SP is nearing the end of its useful life wih a number of problems so I jumped at the new, 2018 JP55slalom pro from Reg.
Really happy with the new board, I hope it is a goood replacement for my JP54SP which has probably done about 6000 kms as it is my general use board.
A great sail with some excellent people. This was my second use of the Pepefoil 19.5, it behaves a bit differently with a different tail shape. a bit more spin out and harder to correct but still a very good fin for this combo. The alpha shows this, I have ot nailed the rig flip yet on the new board but I still had a couple of 24+ alphas even though the wind was gusty.
I look forward to continuing with this combo and also trying the 7.0 on the board.
Really nice to catch up with the crowd at Liptons, a very happy group. Gotta love the GPSTC.
Hardie as always found the speed, nice going Joseph.
