Lilacs JP54SP TR17 6.3 FangyFin 20 then Elmo 19.5@48
Forecast was for 25-30 at 5pm, Joseph thought it would be better earlier, wind measured at 5:30: 13kts
Arrived and measured ave 18, should have rigged 7.0 but it had been honking so went 6.3. Never fully powered on NM run.
But should I complain, no it was great fun out there with Samy initiallly and then just Elmo and me. Thanks for the loan of the fin Alby, it is certainly slippery.
First run I decided to sail over the san to get a longer NM run in. Unfortunately there was onmy 100mm of water. Board stopped dead, me over the top and boom all floppy. Bugger I thought it was broken. Luckily it was just the rope on the mast clamp. Bodged it with one side of the adjustable outhaul and I was in business.
First NM top speed 37+ but did not feel quick. Next NM 36+ top, that averaged to be the best of the day. So I had sun, warm flat water, no broken boom ( foot a bit bruised) and a great time.

Recalculated with Realspeed (my standard programme) at home.
Had issues with Alpha which had 2 mid points with low sat readings but an otherwise smooth gybe. So a PB in my hardest category, woo hoo.
Tabou Manta 54, NP RSR E7 7.0m, Pepe weed 21cm
Had a great day out with my Chicky Babe and it was blowing bloody hard down at the Whaling station and the gap, Got back after 3 having measured 22knots at where HArdz was going out again.
Got back to Lilacs andf rigged the same as yesterday although I did start with a 19cm fin as the wind was supposed to go mental at 5pm, unfortunately it just kept backing of.
That said I had a ball doing a few Naughties no bare aways, tried a few alphas made a good sized dent on one.
Great fun sailing with Steve, A great day
Huge congrats to Sammy and Hardz for being there when it happened then making the magic happen, well done guys
