Pitt Water, TAS, AU

5.6 OD R5   80 iSonic   28 Venom

Was warm and windy when I arrived did about 4 runs and slowly the wind dropped out and dropped a few degrees with rain. Looking out the window as I write this and it is howling, raining and on the way to snow. All in all a bit of a crap sail.....teaser.

Pitt Water, TAS, AU. Isonic 97, Volt 2 36cm and R6 7.0.

Nice late sail with Fletch and Tim. Glad we got back in ok guys. Wind went nuts for a while. Kazza just came in when I arrived. Good to see a few of the crew at PW.

Pitt Water, TAS, AU  Good first "refreshing" sail back home in Tassie's 10 degree water after playing around with the kids in 30 degree water in Thailand for a month - that's 20 degrees cooler! Good company in Steve and Fletcher, nice to have others around when the close to 40 knot gusts came through late in the afternoon!  iSonic 115, Gator 6.5, Drake DW34 



Fletcher (1394km):

Pitt Water, TAS, AU - Isonic 101, 4.6m SSR severne, 28cm Tectonic Falcon and two runs on Steve's IS97 and R67.0

gusty sail at first then it came in very powered up until dark - quite out of control at times! Thanks for letting me try your gear Steve, seems Im going to have to get some new gear i've tried it Cool

Henty, TAS, AU, Pretty good day at Henty with Dave, started off NW then swung WNW for most of the day, the last run was SW.

Did a few runs on the M 112 but mostly M 47, R7 6.2, CL24W

Henty, TAS, AU iSonic 86 and Speed W49, coupled with 6.2 and 5.6 Severne and C3 Slingshot 23cm fins.

A good day sailing Henty with Cookie!  A pretty long day though, 5 hour drive, 8 hours of rigging, sailing and un-rigging then another 5 hour drive!  Well worth it though.  Wind started too broad as usual, then swung enough to do a reconnaissance run down to the end, followed by a 2.3km walk back up in boggy sand!  At least the wind had swung a bit more by the time I got back up to the top of the run!  After that it was a good direction, but maybe a bit too tight for really high speeds, as there was not a lot of room to bear off and when you did there was chop.  Absolutely howling at times though (easily 40+), but usually when walking back up the run!  Very high river level, with waves from the ocean coming over the last 20% of the run increasing chop in that area and reducing visability (foam).  I had one stack going over that chop at about 38 knots and snapped the uni-joint in half (swim rig in, swim after board that was stuck in branches on the other side, swim board back across channel in a gale, then another 2km walk back)! 

All in all the conditions were about as good as i've seen it, but the the lure of a good NM took it out of me (and Cookie) with all of the walking and we weren't focussed on peak speeds.  All in all a very good day!

Well done on the PBs Fletch. Looks like the wind gods smiled on us. 30 sec after you got off my gear it came in big time. Started off in 5 knots and must have been 35 to 40 when we came in. Glad I stuck it out. Well done Fletch and Tim you guys sailed really well in those conditionsCool

Thanks guys. I still don't know how you both kept those big sails under control when I was struggling with the 4.6!????

Thanks guys, a few photos and tracks of the run.  Had to move the car half way through the day as the track in got flooded - which meant more walking at the end of the day!
