7.5m GT Turbo- WT64 ( 112ltres)- 39cm C3 sting pointer

Thought I'd only float but I got a few spurts that were enough to keep me out there. That board is fun a7kts speed. It feels like it's planing even though it's not . Probably more of a long board feel.

I've never been able to get my head around how to pump. I do my own version which is to stay hooked in and is more bouncing the board onto the plane.

I decided to give the sail pump idea a proper go. Not to think too much but just unhook and go for it.. I surprised myself ! Surprised It felt really good and worked well , very physical though. I didn't stay on the plane long as the wind wasn't strong enough.

Bouncing worked well with the shorter RS4 but this board is longer and bigger. Generally I just have to bear off a bit to plane but it's nice to have another tactic for when it's really marginal.  I seem ok on port tack but a bit unco on starboard. More practise needed.

 On the down side I've saved a few subplaning gybes by grabbing the mast on starboard gybes .. It's starting to become a habit so I need to fix that..

 Heaps of big cruisers coming back from down the lake and leaving monster wakes.. Lucky the board handles them well. I hate to think what summer is going to be like..Undecided

 The outhaul got wedged on the applecore a few times which was really annoying and I had to jump in and fix it.

 Lovely sunny day and although it was light it was pretty consistent.

Just me and 4 foiling moths that were burning all around the lake.. one foiler as I packed up.

It's my  9th session on the WT and I'm starting to feel pretty comfortable on it..Smile
