Tinaroo Dam....When the gusts came they were pretty good but long lulls in between.       5.9m Loft 02 and 105l Screamer



Herby (14385km):

Tinaroo Dam with Lyn and Hans.....Lyn had a much smaller sail but put it all over me.     I used 7.4m Loft 02 and 120l S/cross

iS101, 7.8 Blade, 40 Talon - Lammermoor Beach, QLD, AU Wind SSE 13 - 18knots

First real go with this combo and just needed a little more wind to make it really enjoyable (not as much as yesterday) - it was really up and down due to there being a lot of south in it.  Quite surprised just how well a biggish sail goes on the 101.  Great way to finish off a Monday.

KA72 - Holloways Beach, QLD, AU

Wow what an awesome sail, had so much fun. It started off very ordinary (was spewing) then the wind kicked in, I have to say it doesn't get better, felt like I was on the edge, I love my Mn's but was pooping myself so didn't give it my best, maybe I'm too old. Had 31.97 on the dial and really wanted a 32 but got too rooted with my last 2 water starts so woosed out and called it a day, I'll blame 2 busy night shifts Wink

I was watching Jason flying off the wind, he definitely looks the goods, watched him turn upwind into a ramp and get some awesome air, that gave me the biggest smile as I knew he was having a ball, he will be the one to watch in the future Cool

I kept thinking how lucky the GI crew will be, expecting some great numbers Smile

 

Carbon Art SL58, Venom 34, 6.8 Loft Blade and Boardies, very nice set up.

Thanks Hoppy for your support and Gaz for coaching.

Good to catch up with Eddy and young Billy who both had a great day.

Jason (1168km):

Wind came in nicely sailed with Bob good fun to be had by all. Firie was sailing like a machine nearly 32kts at Holloways very impressive I don't know how he does it - NO FEAR

Green Island, QLD, AU.Big day at Green, wind was gusty in morning around 25kts, could not get my act together lost alot of time in the morning waiting for tide to come in a bit ,did a few more runs got tuned up.Was having a good hard blast but getting very out of shape trying to do speed runs,Gaz pulled me up and showed me the line to take to get some speed, was having a great session,then i had a major wide out on a speed run,hit the water so hard it tore GPS off my arm and hurt my ribs which were just starting to come good from going over the handle bars on dirt bike a few weeks ago.Had a bit of a sook,but managed to keep sailing untill knock of time,had a great day with the boys.Saw Green Island as i have never seen it before..Was unreal..Cheers Ed..

I was thinking only 3 of us sailed today but wow what a team session.  A royal flush for Billy, a couple PB's for Jason and Freddy and a PB alpha for Gaz.  Well done guys.

Firie, nice numbers for the beach too.  Can you borrow a bigger fin of someone?

Brad, I do believe FNQPBFEST is one of the new words being added to the Oxford dictionary for 2011 Wink

WOW 14 Pb's in one day, bloody awesome going every one Tongue out

Ha I thought you'd get a couple of Pb's Jason, nice going.

Sweet Alpha Gaz, getting faster corners all the time.

Cleen sweep Billy, wont be long and the GI crown will be yours !

Hey Eddy, so happy for you and Freddo, big big jumps in speed. Sorry about the wipe out but I guess that's what makes it so much fun, never knowing when it's going to end in tears.

Great photos Hoppy, you did well, thanks to Gaz for taking his DSLR over for you to play with Cool

Nice jumps Toody, as you said once it's not always about the numbers, too true Smile

Great day in FNQ Tongue out
