Great run Melville ->Wallyworld return.
I have much to learn on this board - it's prepared to do things that I am not yet ready for - especially broad reaching. Quite scary but great fun.
Nice to catch up with Stringer and Ado amongst others up at Wallyworld. Good turnout today.
|Jeff (11518km): |
Mettams to Sorrento, 5m a bit big, 79l Kombat a bit big as well. Some swell around so the downwind stuff very interesting. Great fun.

A frustrating session at Pelican's. Downsized the sail several times. Just couldn't get it going properly all day.
Managed to crack my (otherwise pristine) board in 2 places. Just bought it 2 days ago .
Toby passed by, so I had a shoulder to cry on...At least the Starboard fin worked well.
I need a smaller board...
A 2010 summary - 48 sessions - 350kms? That's just over 7km per session. People still post more in a single session.

Short sharp sesh @ Pinnaroo.
Bloody windy (25-30K) and pretty rough and I was fully lit on the 93 S-Type + 6.4 Koncept + 31 JP weedie.
After eating it 3 times in quick succession trying to go fast and broad gave up any aspirations of quick speeds and just tried to enjoy the ballistic conditions.
Pleased with the speeds given the sea state, but kinda wish I'd gone to the river (sounds like Wallyworld was firing!!).
Gave it away after an hour after failing to convince myself that I was having fun anymore.
Happy New Year to all the GTC crew and here's to a cracking 2011!!

85L Sonic, 5.7 Koncept, 32 vector 15 - 20 knots.
Whoo Hoo! I am loving this sail. Two outings and two 2 sec PB's. Felt like my max speed was only limited by my fear factor. I am not used to going that fast!
|Snake (23888km): |
Great sesh at safety bay pretty lit on the 5.4. Heavy traffic but still pleased with the alpha could have gone deeper on the exit
