Stupid GPS. Only had one GPS today and the only info on there was the 207km (lucky for some reason that was on there or I would be in tears). Had a good 1hr and NM. At least Dave and Kaleb will have good scores. Sailed at Mortimer Bay, Isonic 107, C3 40cm Sting, Reflex 2 7.0. On the water at 6am and sailed till 12.30pm. Well done to everyone who went out today. Super windy at times, the Reflex 7.0 was handling 30 plus kots at times (great sail).

Good fun today, with four of us braving the elements before dawn.  Aim was to do 200 km, but Kaleb kept going Surprised  Well done on a real solid set of numbers Kaleb!!  Fantastic effort.  Great to see a PB from Russ and Steve as well!!

I nearly rigged the 7.0 and 107, but decided on the 6.2 and 86 with 34cm Venom.  Was good for the first few hours, but too much time off the plane in the lulls so changed to the 107.  The 6.2 felt good on the 107 with a 42cm StingII.  Quite rough and windy at times.

Up early with Kaleb Dave and Steve I think they are still out there.

Fun sail with the boys. I enjoyed my fist sail on the Naish sp ltd 95 2010 it is so fun I just kept sailing. choppy and gusty to say the least.

Happy to finally crack a 100km the boys are going for 200 and i think they will make it.

Steve is the legend of the day on his 107 with a 7.0 Surprised some of the wind was so overpowered on my 6.6m

Managed to hit the only object in the water and take 25mm off my fin!!! still worked ok but made bearing off a bit of a challange.

tried now need Beer!!!!!

Starboard Futura 111, KA Koncept 5.8 and Venom 40

Well what a day and all for the wrong reasons. Had the alarm set early to go to Mortimer with the other guys but when I woke it was pouring with rain, so thought no chance of getting in with the van so hit the snooze button a couple of 10 times haha

Headed for the lagoon and got there about 7.30ish was windy on and off but not a great angle and swinging all the time, so only got a few runs in, did a lot of sitting around and talking, so then around 1 decided to go to Dorans.

Damo and Brett were there half rigged and trying to decide whether to go out as the wind was on & off and swinging in direction but they ended up hitting the water after a while. I sat in the car and then decided since I was still in the wetty that I would re-rig and hit the water with them as the wind was a bit more consistent. Well this is where the fun began.

On the first run over towards the police academy the wind was cranking and I was fully powered up on the 5.8 then all of a sudden I went over a big bit of chop and the rig just collapsed, I thought I had broken a mast but then I saw the board just take off down wind and out of sight, the board still had the uni in it as it had come out of the extension. Decision stay with the rig or ditch the rig and try and chase the board down, didn’t know what to do since I was so far away from the shore. I decided to stay with the rig as I would have lost it for sure and I knew that I had a chance of finding the board washed up on the rocks later on.

Had to swim with the rig for about 1km until I was finally in the shallows, then had to wade over to the rocks dump the rig and start the mission of finding the board, found it eventually washed up on the rock, waded it back to the sail and over two hours later I was back to the car. Interesting times..

Hey Steve,

Were you using an SD card, or just using the datalogger?  The logger only records a certain number of hours (I think around 6?) but the card will record months of continuous data.

This has bitten me before as well Surprised

Nebbian, I was using an SD card. When I went to download the info it was saying 0 KB. The only info I could see on the GPS display was the odometer reading. I will give the GPS to Dave and see if he has any luck.

Bad luck Jez, you should have driven into Mortimer the track wasnt too bad. Hope the board is ok.

Well done on all the results and pb's from today, great work guys! Kaleb you're a machine Smile Russ you and GPS's not a good combo, you must have touched Steve's GPS WinkFrown (bad luck Steve, hope Dave can salvage it)

Yer should have gone to Mortimer for a look at the track at least, oh well will know for next time. Just cant believe the track was ok with all the rain we've had.

Only damage was some minor dents on the bottom of the board and a couple of scratches on the fin, so a lucky escape.

Awesome southern team effort.  Well done to Damo, Steve, Russ, and Will for their PB's.  Hands down Steve wins 'machine of the day' award.  I was having trouble with 5.6 and theres Steve  motoring backward and forward with a 7.0, not to mention a board 27 litre bigger ah well I suppose he is 27kg heavierWink   Jez, Jodi drove into mortimer in her Corollla.

DrCam, I know Iknow! At 200km when Dave and I started to head back I was intending to go in then, after sailing for six hours with no circulation in my hands or feet I was ready to packit in.  Then, when I got back down the bay I had 226km and thought what the hell maybe I can get 250. Then one thing led to another and I was ready to give up at 290.  My hands wouldnt move and were whiter than the white caps, I could not feel my feet properly and it felt like something was in my booties stopping the feet from going into the straps properly.  I did one more run to give me 299 on the Garmin. I wanted 300 and thought I might just go a bit further and get a PB.  I got halfway acroos the run and in 30 knots got all crossed up on some crazy chop and spunout really bad.  That was it, I said some strange words that I cant repeat and thank Huey for the 300km and said stick the PB for today.

After sailing continually for 8.5 hours(occasional 2 minute lay up in the shallows) I needed food and water.  My hands had swollen up to look like I had no knucles and my usually loose wedding band would not move, Jodi thought I might have to cut it of(shes always trying to get rid of me) My feet had also swollen up and with no felling in them it was very strange to walk around and it explained why I was having trouble finding the footsraps and getting my feet to fit into them.  Today the swelling in my hands has gone down but my fingers are numb and tingly with limited feeling. My feet are the same and the heels feal like they've been smashed with a slegde hammer.

Who's stupid idea was it to do distance when the teperature in Hobart was 7-9 degrees. You can knock a couple more off for where we sailed and then take a bit more for wind chill.  What a bunch of lunatics!!

Great day sail though, a bit gusty at times ranged from 12- 35 maybe even a touch more in some gusts.  I got hit by a gust with 10minutes left for my one hour and could not stay in control at all and got slammed, it took me 3 minutes to get up again(damit thats over 1 knot off the hour) with a 5.6 out of control I'd call it pushing 40. 

Dave its your fault! You planted the 300 seedin my head!

If I knew Evets had 310 for 2011, I might have just stuck at it for that last runWink

Big well done to Russ for sticking it out with that 6.6 and putting in the hoursCool

Now its up to our 2sec, 5x10 Northern team mates.No pressure of courseSealed

Dave, we both know that if you didnt have to go to the airport you would have kept going. I'm very greatful you HAD to leave, or I might have been feeling a whole lot worse as the sun went down and you refuse to leave the water until I do.  That was one chance to pay you back for last year when you snuck those few extras in after we all leftWink

Kaleb I cannot believe the conditions you sailed in. Mine was really cruisy compared to that. I hate sailing in cold conditions: anyting under 15 is pretty cold, single figures is really unpleasant.Have you tries a camel back? I cannot do distance without one as I get cramp. Also I stick a muesli bar or two in my float coat so I can eat ocassionally.

p.s. when I said 2 over 300 I meant you have 2 over 300, that is remarkable commitment. Only Kato has more at 4Surprised, 4 including you with 2. Who will be first to 5? Kato is the obvious leaderCool
