Dont tell JJ but that was Bloody good! (sorry JJ wish you were there) Plenty enjoying the rather special conditions and there are going to be some awesome posts to come guaranteedLaughing Great to crack the big 40. Started out on the M91 and it was very well lit up so after 1hr went to the speed board. Became overpowered in the end and got slower so time to call it quits. Awesome day with great bunch of people, very memorable for sureSmile

Got there when the wind was not very strong. Rigged 5.8 Koncept on Xfire 80 and 19 Delta. Underpowered for quite a while then the wind picked up and had a short period of just right then overpowered.

Had a go awith the alpha markers but never quite pulled off a really good gybe. Surprised to see I got a second best alpha, so sure I can do better. Saw Alan out there going well.

Had a short session with the Mistral 47 but by then badly overpowered on the 5.8 (Darryl Page was on a 5.8!) so called it a day.

Still, a good Christmas Eve.

Nice to see Anita on her 4.9.

Coodanup, WA, AU M41 then 47 tribal 21 then delta 17 4.9K The 47/17 combo felt best and was fastest

far from flat today, but plenty of wind

I was hoping to get to Coodanup earlier when the wind was lighter and the chop smaller but Christmas duties delayed me. One good thing was the wind picked up a notch just before I rigged, rather than just after, which made it an easy decision to go with the 4.9. I think it is the first time I have used that sail and been really powered up. I can only remember one Summer day at Coodanup when it was windier. In the end I was being lifted even with the 4.9. Disappointed to have that much power and still not to be able to exceed 33knots. There was no really flat water today and deep bear aways were just too scary. For that reason the 5X was in my top 5. In the end I decided it was too dangerous to continue, especially as there was only one other sailor out (maybe the others had the same thought).

Thanks Paul for keeping me company until the end.

I really want to break 34 knots. My PB is 33.97 from nearly 2 years ago. 34 is the new 30 - if you remember the struggle I had breaking that barrier.

What a mission, had to pay the cleaner to stay on and babysit so i could join Mark at Point Grey. He was officially "injured" and "taking it easy" today so was acting as guide and speed guru. JJ had lent me his Mistral 47 and i rigged my 6.2 as instructed by expedition leader, looked far too windy for a 6.2 but once out across the channel it was super smooth. i then sailed past a lady standing up to her ankles in water so thought id better jump off and found that i too was up to my ankles...must be the mandurah way!

Anyway it was an awsome experience, started in the 36s then 38s then 39.88 and finally 41.32. was very happy until i found that PJ had done 42.9 on his 107!! impressive stuff. big numbers all round, i understand...not least my injured mentor!!

i had to rush back to take the kids to the Christmas service and possibly missed the strongest wind (thats my excuse Laughing)

A big thanks to JJ and Mark.

apologies for the very poor hour and alpha that we were supposed to be targetting but you dont get many days like today!

Happy Christmas indeed!

Litpons. What a massive turnout today and some massive numbers to back it up. I'll post more later, but just an awesome day on the water with a great crew today. So much fun!

Huge thanks go to coach Mark, who really earned his Lao Shi title today, helping me get over the line again and again. I would have just given up if not for his encouragement. 

Big ups to Lunny and Jonah for smashing their way into the 40 club, and to Mark for well....he can tell you that bit Wink

An awesome day with a huge crew and heaps of PBs!Cool Big downer was not being able to share it with Speedy!Cry We missed you, JJ!

gps

This PB has stood for almost 6 years. When I first broke 43 display (43.22) I still felt like a bit of a rookie and that perhaps I had fluked it. I certainly didn't expect to do this when I got up and could barely hobble down the stairs at home!Cry A stupid slip at Dutchies had left me with a badly bruised ankle joint and I had resigned myself to being team support for my Pinnaroos speed buddies.

Never seen Jonah so nervous!Embarassed Not at LOC or any of the wave events. He was under pressure having borrowed Speedy's M47 and put himself in massive brownie point debt to make the trip down. I made him rig big (6.2), move the mast track back, add more downhaul and gave him a few teaspoons of cement before sending him out to Pt Grey.

Mission was the 40 and he smashed it!Cool People were doing 40s all over the shop and I had done a delicate 36.5.Embarassed Loaned him the weight jacket and told him that Pointy was the only one who had ever managed a 40 5x on the team.. he got close.Laughing

Lunny had already smashed 40 by this point and refused offers of kit / weight and kept on hammering out runs.

Finally I decided I should give it a go and went for a short 300m run in to the bear away with a nice sling shot for the 43 display!Surprised Looks like I found the 2nd gear on the MXR 22 weedy (in joke with JJ)! Really peaky run (40.7 10s) with probably too much slingshot (too deep) hence the big drop in 2sec.

And it wasn't a fluke because I also scored a 42.9 display with a 41.08 10s (a PB). Who needs a speed board!Wink

You can see that I held a better line on the 2nd one to keep some load on the fin.

So very similar to the Pt Walter run but in reverse

Wasn't game to try the other tack which put the dodgy ankle as front foot.

Spock had just smashed a 43 on his Isonic 107!!!Surprised It was going off!

Next task was Snake who was wearing a groove in Point Grey but not going any faster! We tried downhauling his sail but couldn't get enough tension on it so he headed back in. He came back out on the 5.7. Gave him the weight, shortened his boom, moved the track back told him to get angry and sent him on his way.

By this time I had checked the gps and realised that there was a chance of the 40 ave. Managed a 41 run with a 40 10s without the weight and it was on.

Snake had smashed 41 and now had the bit between his teeth! I think if I had not started sailing back upwind he would still be out there!Tongue out Kept saying "just 1 or 2 more runs"! So close to the 40 ave too!Cool Thanks for the beer after.

Slowy and Stroppo were giving the masterclass with 45s and 42 /43 10s runs.Surprised

Just a note about the speed.  My 2010 PB was a 43.22 run through KA72 (and GPS results) but 42.74 through Realspeed which I was using at the time (different method of calculation). Realspeed gives the numbers for this session as 42.76 and 40.14 but as most people seem to be posting through KA72 now that is what I am posting with for this session. So is it a PB? Yes, by a poofteenth in my book although not from KA72! However the last one was on a 50 wide speed board and this on a 57 wide slalom board. Nice going Mr Boat!

Loft Blade 5.6, Mistral SL91, MXR 22 SW, 5kg weight and a big grin!

Merry Xmas everyone and apologies to the team Captain for hijacking the team mission but it was too good to miss.Embarassed

First of a all a massive shout out to my team mates smashing out big numbers (and PBs) at Liptons.  Wish I could've been there to share the stoke.

As it was I was really happy just to get on the water, flew  in from Darwin Wednesday evening, so a big road trip on Xmas Eve was never on the cards.

Instead I settled for a pretty ballistic Melville and some hairy bearaways through some teeth rattling chop.

Pretty lit on the M112 + 6.6 TR7 + 33 CL SL2 combo.

Best run got me a peaky 40.1 display speed (37.5 10-sec).

Dodgy SD card didn't record a sesh and won't work with 'save to card' or reformat, so I'm only posting the data I can retrieve from the unit.

So much fun, hard going after six months without sailing, but really happy to be fangin again! 

Post script:  yay got my data!  Pretty happy the peak wasn't heavily penalised from the 40.1 display. Cool

Mark! Huge! It is not often you get a PB these days, and two in one session... sensational! especially while injured!

Liptons was definitely the place to be and it was definitely a session for 2 sec and 5 X. I should have been there too.

Your coaching would have got me past the 34 I am sure!

I guess you'll just have to try for a sizzling hour later in the week...

What a day! Great xmas pressie guys. Anita great speed- the pesky 2 sec is a pain but I haven't been over 32 kts since last July. How much wind was there?

Windxtasy

1694 days ago

Sue, The wind meter was reading 17-20. It was wrong. I'd say around 25 knots where I was. I was on the other side of the estuary to where the big speeds were, and there was probably a bit more wind over there and some flatter water.
