On the water at 2pm, Jonah, Norts and Isaac already out. Super gusty 10 to 22 knots, glad I had the big board to get through the long lulls.

Well that was an interesting day! Launched at Attadale and was having a cracker of a time, bit gusty and lumpy as hell in places. Worked myway up to Peli Pt, bit flatter and a couple out there too. While out deep i dropped a gybe from a lull in the wind, done it plenty of times but i felt a bit of a scrape across my right shin. Oh dear, a quick look at it and there seemed to be a slightly large scratch with some loveley red juice coming out of it, pulled out some plastic, resiny g10 looking stuff from it....ooooh thats more than a scratch. Headed back to Peli pt where i kindly asked a couple of guys for a bit of tape so i could head back without leaving a trail of burley brine for the bull sharks to sniff out. Well wouldnt you know it i met Bunyip who kindly offered his first aid kit and had me wrapped up ready to go......to the hospitalFrown So i plodded back as the wind had now dropped off.

So after a few hours in the hospital the loveley doc had whacked 8 stitches in my shin, damn i thought it was just a scratch.

She also found a bit more g10 and said the bone had a nick in it too.

Cant believe my damn shin has damaged my wonderful fin! Look theres a bit of fin missing.Surprised

 

Ah well i guess I'm out for a week. Good hour out though and a big thanks to Bunyip for helping me outSmile

Well I have a story too, but no numbers.

I was feeling sore in the shoulders today and thought the 5 – 30 knot swings this morning might be a bit much, so I decided Peli Point mid afternoon as the wind started to pick up again might be the best idea. Arrived at Peli at 2.30 to find Bunyip and Gustenzo had just come in. Bunyip was telling me he’d just patched up one of our team members who had sailed up from Point Walter…

The wind was extremely gusty, going from 10 knots to 25 and back again, making it impossible to rig appropriately, and not wanting to have to fight the sail in the gusts I decided to give it a miss.

I did however have a new sail that I wanted to rig, to get the settings sorted out. So out with the brand new 2016 5.4 Koncept. I put on as much downhaul tension using my North powerXT as I could muster, but it wasn’t quite enough. Ricey came along and put on as much as he could and it still wasn’t enough. I removed the extension, added an extra 2 cm and tried again. I could not get that extra bit of DH required. I asked Mike for a bit of brute strength and he came over with his winch, and even that was struggling to add DH because everything was already so tight, and the rope snapped before we could add the extra little bit of DH required.

I exchanged the rope, and put a longer lever on the north XT. Got to the same downhaul as before (not quite enough, about 1 cm more should do it…) and the lever snapped.

I was running out of working extensions at this stage and decided to call it a day. Good thing I hadn’t desperately wanted to sail anyway, although by this time the wind had filled in rather nicely and it was looking inviting.

It was a least a good chance to catch up with the Peli Point chapter of the Pinnaroos (GS, Ricey, Bunyip and Gustenzo).

The question is, what do I do to get this sail to rig properly? I am thinking the mast must be too stiff if the rope/lever snaps before the required DH is achieved. The mast is an old Rushwind mast (400). It works in my 4.9 Koncept so I had expected it to work in the 5.4.

My plan is to try a different mast (once I have fixed my extensions).

 

Any ideas and loaner masts welcome.

Pelican Point, WA, AU 8.6 Turbo 133L Bic 40 FO. What a day, nothing really seemed right, the big gear was better than the small though. Originally went out with a 6.5 and a 95L but the wind was dropping as I went out so put the 6.5 on the 133, not a good feeling combo. JP and I decided the plan was to go big to get through the lulls. Rigged up the 8.6  and tried to make it a 7.8 or 7.5 with downhaul, it was manageable for the conditions. Anita, David and Shaw came down was good to catch up. A lot of stoke was happening on the water which was cool. Some people got good speeds, some nice gybes, some nice long runs and a mate of mine got planing for the first time (addicted!). All in all for the not ideal wind a great day! Hope the extension comes quick Anita and that you find a compatible mast, cheers for the tip with the cam spacer. Laughing

South easterly with a lot of holes, but enough wind to get planing some of the time. Got a couple of planing gybes which I was pleased with given the light wind.

Rocket 125, 6.0 Gator, 32 fin.

Nice to see Anita this side of the river for a change, also Vincent and Shaw.

Point Walter, nice putt around. Gusty as it gets but thats all part of the fun Smile . 6.6 koncept, Mistral 112. A social sail as JJ might say.

Quick session at Point walter.

tried my new Chris Lockwoods weed fin

Im sceptical about the 2 second peak, ive checked there are no car journeys included, there were a couple of good gusts but never felt super quick.

107, reflex 7 7.8 lockwood 35 the volt 39

EDIT (Windxtasy) - file checked with realspeed, sadly the 2 sec peak was only 31.33, which is more consistent with the 5X of 29.391.  There were no spikes on the realspeed track and the peak in that run was 31.568.

Craig, sorry to hear of your mishap.

"Cant believe my damn shin has damaged my wonderful fin"  I am not sure you have your priorities right there, but I can relate to the sentiment! I can't believe your shin damaged the fin either.

Bunyip, well done on those PBs, especially in lumpy bumpy Peli Point chop. Super nauti! Karma for your good deeds...

Lunny, I was thinking that is going to hurt. Good thing you are tough. Can you walk OK? I hope you didn't have to work last night!

Please do wait until the skin wound at least is fully healed before heading onto the water. With that wound being down to the bone you really do not want to get an infection in there. If you were a dog I'd be recommending at least 10 days off the water.

Lunny, Yell mate would be stinging today.Surprised Just be very very careful as those wounds dont like any external nasty things getting in. Cry

Stay off the water until ist completly sealed up. No matter how much the temptation is to go out. DON'T!!! The last thing you need is to pick up an infection, and it went to bone debth.

Bunyip, well done on your PB's. Particularly in those crap south east type breeze.Cool

Anita I think your mast is too stiff.

The Hot Rod RDM's I use are slighty too stiff for my Koncepts - I probably use too much DH to get the luff to fall off.

I have a 400 RDM you can test if you like.

Hope that heals quickly Lunny, good advice above. Anita, Im curious about these dogs you have to tell not to get back on the water Laughing Do they kite or windsurf?

Windxtasy

Jeff, Usually they just play ball in the surf.

Lunny, the team doctor says: Trouble with anterior shin is they are notoriously slow to heal, and if he goes too early it will get infected for sure. It's going to be 10 days minimum, I would say safer to leave it 2 weeks. Chances of him doing that if he is anything like me.....zero Flushed face

Thanks for the wise words all, I'm really listening now. Hey Anita I'm not a dog but my wife sometimes compares me to a pig, i assume the advice would be the sameLaughing

I have just checked Jonah's file with realspeed, sadly the 2 sec peak was only 31.33, which is more consistent with the 5X of 29.391. All the other numbers were a bit better with realspeed, so I have substituted them and I hope they compensate a bit. There were no spikes on the realspeed track and  the peak in that run was 31.568. I don't know where the 38 came from - did the GPS read 38 or did that come from KA 72? My GPS gave me a peak of 72 knots once...

Anyhow, that means that Lunny was the speedster of the day (was the sacrifice worth it?), and Bunyip came very close. Well done Bunyip. If you can keep up with Lunny on a speed course you will be very valuable to the team - especially as Lunny will be off the water for a while.

Wow, just got into the country this morning and started reading the goss from the week. Looks like a war of attrition this week. Lao Shi vs bee ( 1 nil to bee), Windxtasy and two others vs DH pulley (3 nil to DH pulley), Lunny vs G10 fin (draw). Congrats to Bunyip on PBs and awesome river peak Jonah. Fingers crossed for the third umpires review. Lunny, I recommend an epoxy fix on the fin and a 6" butted weld on the shin:)

Cripes that looks nasty Lunny! Surprised You must have been adrenalised to want to keep sailing..Wink

 Wow Anita a 2016 sail! Boy that's a little one I wouldn't get to use that much over here..mainly 7.8m - 6.4m..Undecided Sounds like you need a more suitable curve etc mast..good luck.
