Sandy point does not get much better than the last part of todays session when the wind went to the ideal angle!
I am actually quite disappointed in my speeds today. Something about my setup was just not right and I was stuck for a long time in the 43's, despite being super powered up. I knew I should have come in and changed some things, but it's such a mission, I just kept running and hoping.
12 runs in 3 hours! You have to work hard for your speeds here! Especially of you are a little old man. Kato was like a energiser bunny again and probably tripled the number I did.
Huge kudo's to Kato! It definitly came together for him today. Sail, board, fin and fitness all complementing all the hard work for a great result! He looked very balanced and comfortable on all his runs, even in the big squalls! That is the secret of fast! It looks all serene to us but he is working like crazy to keep it happening.
The Northerners did really well too. I heard that Vando smashed a huge peak on his last run (just after the wind swung and the water flattened). Pity they could not stay a bit longer. The next hour was the best conditions! I am looking forward to seeing their results!
Good to see Mick, first time on his CA40 getting some really good runs too! PB's?
KA Koncept 5m, Tribal 18 assy speed, CA40. No weight.
Wind readings from Yanakie this morning 36-41 W early, 35-40 WSW after the wind shift. Pretty much what we got I'd say, although a few squalls may have been slightly more.
