Fun afternoon with Alby, Shane, Steve on the water. There were a few others like Cliff, Gazman & Glenn who has just returned to windsurfing after 25 years.
Decided to sail early afternoon as I'm on night shift now. Found myself again tossing up betwenn the 6.2 & 5.4 but thought I'd follow Sammy's words & see if I could sail efficiently, so the 5.4 it was. Gee that sail is very good across the breeze, from Kiters end back towards town I got the 28 & a few 27knot NM's, going back towards Kiters I was always a couple of knots slower. Very easy to gybe but on the way out of gybes I did struggle a bit to get back up to speed. Conclusion I think I need a 5.8 to split the gap
The Alpha is all about the speed in as I don't think the actual minimum speed through the turn & speed out were anything special. I was actually working my way upwind at the time so there was a few meters to play with, think it was about 43m from memory. Still I'm stoked to get a 25 as that's been one of my targets, providing it all checks out of course.
Missed out on the big Naughty days but still had a lot of fun today

Had a great morning out with my Chicky babe and a fantastic lunch at Frenchies (it was open) after which my beloved said the winds blowing and I should go out for a sail....What a woman
Jeremy and Shane were rigging up when Steve turned up.
I decided that as I'd had such a good lunch I'd better try for an hour, well happy with the results but found out after I'd done it the the mast foot was way to far forward and was slowing me down by at least 3 knots going square, also had issues with footstraps which will take a bit of time sorting out which I didn't have today.
Was great fun first chasing around with Jeremy who was continually reeling me in and the Steve later in the session who looked to be having a lot of fun but I later found out that there is a price for 5 days of bliss.
Awesome fun way to end my Time in lieu down in Albany, great time out with my Chicky and brilliant sailing.
Now we have a good excuse for going out to dinner tonight for some chew and spew.
