15-22kts SSE Lake George, SA, AU

5.5m Mach2 - 80ltre iso-18cm tribal

A frustrating session as I rigged too small.Frown The wind speed / board combo from 2015 just didn't cut it..Undecided

 I think the overcast kept it patchy.I was powered ok in the occasional gust but most of the time had my rear foot out of the strap going upwind. Tried a few bearaaways and I was underpowered and only getting 29 - 30 kts so I didnt bother and did my usual just go upwind thingy..boring..and not much fun when you have a big fat inner critic telling you you're hopeless..Wink

 I've hardly used that combo before so I'm still getting used to it. I think the tribal needs to be more powered up than the larger Fangy.

 I think the 6.2m and 21.5cm FF would have been a better choice. It did pickup at the end but it was still too patchy.

 On the brighter side I did some 'killer'( for me ) wide gybes and didn'tt run aground..still no good alphas though.

Heaps out having a ball  flying down the speed strip ..grr Wink

 Hopefully next time I can choose the right combo. Previous years I've got it right and flown upwind flying off the fin.. I'm really wanting that feeling but just not getting it this year.

 The wind had blown the water away from the 3 mile side and it was a fair hike out to get knee deep water..zzzzzzzzzzzz I had a look at Packem on he way home and there was a big 50m dryish weed area around the shore and it looked really shallow.

 17 degrees with a fresh breeze and drizzle. I love being in a nice cozy house..Smile

The Golden Lake delivers again!

Lake George SA, South 20-25

Isonic 90, Techtonics 21 weedy with 7.0 and 6.2

The forecast looked good for a bit of distance fun. Set the alarm for 6.30, but on waking there didn't appear to be much wind. On arriving at the lake it was cool and misty, I rigged the 7.0 and set off at 8.10. Initially there was just enough to cruise, but the first 50km was a real battle trying to keep planing and stay up wind. After a short break a few others arrived and so did the wind. Soon I was a little over done with the 7.0,  but I battled on to the 150km mark. At the lunch break I changed down to a 6.2. This was far more comfortable, I set off down to the spit for a bit of variety. It's much nicer down there, lots of flat water. At 250 I was in for another quick refuel. Then stayed at the southern end of the lake, as high up as possible away from the chop. There were loads out with many of them running the eastern glassy speed run. As the day drew to a close they faded away until once again I was alone on the lake. Nearing 8pm the sea mist was closing in making it difficult to see the truck, I decided 12 hours was enough and headed in.

The wind was much better than my last distance effort at LG, which enabled me to maintain a higher average speed. Generally I would stop every 20 mins or so for a quick breather so I was surprised to see how quick the "1 hours" were.

 

I had three breaks on the shore totalling 75 mins. Overall average speed 19kts, (Average on water 21 kts)

Will that do Eckers?

Gobsmacked, dead set gobsmacked Andrew SurprisedTongue out

When I heard the cheering after dark last night, I thought Mikey was dancing in his speedos for the boys again. Jokes aside an amazing effort mate, super impressive CoolCoolCool

 

Sue you're being a bit hard on yourself, numbers are just numbers and yours were ok anyway. I was also enjoying some nice wide turns, so much fun I couldn't give a rats trying for a alpha which I'm crap at anyway Laughing

Weed . I  went for a cruise in 5kts wind today and weedbeds are 15 -20 cm under  With wind that might change .It was extremely shallow at the ramp before  3 mile yes5erday - ankle deep for 100m.

In 20kts the chop was only c 18cms high. 

I haven't been out in strong stuff or explored the lake yet so others are probably better than me. Better than last year but I haven't seen any really flat weed beds like 2018 yet..some flat stuff right at the top.
