Fantastic day Laughing 6.3 KA Race was excellent Naish sp ltd is so comfortable for distance and Jasper the Vector 32 Rocket never spun out at all!!!

nice wind not overpowered at any time probably 25 knots max? happy with the 1 hour so many gybes in it because of the low tide and weed!!!! had to stop to get it off

Thanks Jez for being my 1 hour buddySmile blasting later with Steve, Gordo bear will and Kazza (hope you make good distance Kaz).

I'm bugged. Didn't get the milage I wanted, broke my boom at about 95 kms at the other end of the lagoon, so after walking for a bit, Gordo helped me to tie one side together to get back in, so in the end a lot of time wasted. It's hard work getting the kms up.

Absolutly rapted with today, pulled the new 5.8 straight out of the bag and my word are these sails Good!!. Come back out after a drink and somthing to eat and unfortunly missed most of the best direction, so just got the last bit of it. Congratulations to all as i thing every one came away with a PB.

A new channel has formed in the last six months and is a smaller version of Sandy point. This run will be alot quicker with a bit more North in the wind.

Awesome day's sailing at Stanley with the team today rapping up a great weekend. Pleased with the pb's even if the 2 sec didnt quite reach the heights i had been hoping for...... Next time Tongue out Was an extremely supportive if competitive team out today. Thanks again dave for lending me the sail. really made my day! Also thanks to the Red Barron for the tuning tip Wink Found out today that i need to improve my sailing fitness, as the day wore on and the wind got stronger it became harder to hold the sail at the opportune speed moments. Still quite pleased with how i pulled up after my 4th sail in 4 months.

Wait ago team on a brilliant day and year Laughing

Awesome sail at stanley with the team. sail and board felt great apart from the slingshot 23 being too small with some very nervous spinouts. Changed to the venom 32 and it felt great. Had 39.98 on the dial as max speed but couldnt sqeeze anymore out. Next time.

Good fun sail with heaps of people sailing. Nice warm day and good wind but could have done with more wind. Wind was only filling in on one half of the course (car park) side. Had the new 2012 Isonic 87 out for the first time and love the board, jybes like a dream and feels fast. Also tried out the new C3 Sting 2 32cm for the first time and felt great. Also 6.2 Severne Reflex.



Ben Wilson (17381km):

Great sail with the guys at Stanley. Winds almost exceeding my ability... certainly exceeding them at times but finally found the back strap.... even if it was the one on the OTHER side.Thanks all for the tips and tricks.

What a great day!!  Sailed the Starboard iSonic Speed W49 with C3 Slingshot 23.  Started with the Serverne Reflex 5.6, but not really enough power so changed to the 6.2.  The run was one of the easiest to sail.  Just need more wind and a slightly more broard angle.  Can't believe all the PB's.  Well worth the trip!

Great sail at Stanley, new sail is awesome, just did'nt hold my peaks long enough. I had a lot of 42's on the dial and a 26.99 alpha at 55m radiusYell. The 5.8 is unreal Huge! wind range and i was comfortable in the solid 35knot breeze. But just did'nt click on a good wind angle as it was quite square. If i was 20min early back out from having something to eat i think i would of had better speeds. Well done to all on their pb's with some big improvements.

Overall Neilpryde still hold the tassie 2sec record, well done dad with pbs on a sail straight out of the bag. You guys are missing out who have moved on from the Prydes as this is their best year yet!! YEIW... Also the Slingshot fins just keep getting better and better never let go and i was pushing it very hard threw the chop.

The chanels at Stanley have moved heaps with alot of diffrent angle and runs that will produce good numbers. We now have a mini version of Sandy point.

Had a little more when i uploaded to GPS speed surfer, i.e only like .07 of a knot. Threw GPSresults.

Well done Perks on the 44 knot 2-second, that is awesome!!  Everyone was absolutely going for it today.  What a great run that 3rd channel is.  Agree with you Izaak, the C3 Slingshots just hang in there.  There was chop at times in the middle of the main section of the run when trying to bear off and you could just hammer straight through it before heading back into the flatter water near the end of the run - total confidence in those fins!!  Well done Paul on your 'oh so close 40' and Jordon for your 40 on the dial!!  Ben, you were going well out there in pretty hard conditons, well done.

Good to see the guys get a sail at Marion as well.  Nice top speed Russ in what must have been pretty choppy conditions.
