Quick session at Inverloch on the sandbar at low tide - short runs so no records here but great fun. Welcome in 2009!!! Should be some bigger numbers from those at the Pit as the wind is cranking as I write!!!

Struggled a bit today with a sore back and couldn,t really grunt it down in the big gusts, but had a great day regardless. The other boys were flying, there will be some big grins tonight.

Starting the year with a BANG! Yeeharrr!
CA40, TM48. Used the 5m 09 Koncept for early runs but at the end I changed to the 4.4 07 Koncept and went faster easier including my best run. Should have changed down earlier. Got some BIG clues from this on hwo to set and tune my 5m.

A very good way to start the New year.I was going to sail with John at Inverloch but ended up making the trip to the Pit trip. Our best times were done on the incomming tide with all its lumps and bumps. The wind backed off as the strip started to smooth off.I ran the CA 40 with the KA 5.8 and 5 and used the TMV7 and TM 26 fins. Pushed the 26 to a new Pb according to Mal,just love that fin. I mainly use it as a distance fin but as a GP speed fin it rocks. No spin out once up to speed and didn,t even hint at being over powered,even at 41.8. Had a bash at Nm,s but just couldn,t get it together,unlike Spotty with his KA 6.6. Its great that we now have a Nm course
Now we just need to keep ticking the boxes like this for the rest of the year

A very Happy New Year !!! Started on CA44 6.6, wind got stronger and 44s peaks were going down so kept going, by the time I came in others were on 5s & 4.4s.
NM PBstats, CA44 KA Asym23 Ka Koncept 6.6 with a peak speed of 44.85 knts, accelerated from 30 to 40 knots in around 7.5 sec. My arms felt like they would explode just before I reached the SW bank as th 6.6 was just on the brink of its design parameters I guess before it accellerated off down the course to hit its own PB peak and save my arms from further torture.
Late seession switched to '09 Koncept 5.8 and increased peak and 10 sec av some more.

Could have been better! The wind was still difficult compared to our best days at Sandy Point, but managed a few runs to save my dignity...
