Lilacs M91SL pepeweed 27 TR16 5.9

0-30 kts sw to ssw tide intially low, it rapidly rose so flat water disappeared. I hand me arse handed to me several times. One run felt 28 knots, actual 37. and of course the reverse happened. Some huge crashes including one with board unexpectedly vertical in front of me, hit thigh hard on rail when I came down.

I initially rigged 5.5 but decided not enough wind. I therefore put on the 5.9 and that was right ocassionally. A 5.0 would he been ideal for some of the time.

Shane did well with some well controlled runs in the strong wind.

I decided to do a NM and sailed to the south east end of the bay. Stepped off the board and something large swam between my legs hitting both calves as it went past. I sat on my board for a short while wondering what it was, the water was about50 cm deep and though I looked for it I could not see a triangular fin above the water. I sailed off as quickly as I could.

At the end the tide had risen by about 30 cm, I was cold and the wind had steadied closer to 30kts. It was time to take what I had rather than risk hurting myself further.
