A great days sail at Melville. Spent first part of the day practicing gybes between the shore and the sandbar.  Went in for a drink and was about to head home but decided to go out and have a few more runs in the stronger breeze. Effort paid off with some good speeds.

Sonic 85, Diablo 7.2, JP 30cm slalom and then JP 28cm speed.

Pelican Point, WA, AU Iso111/Iso04. V87.5/Od6.5.Fo42/Gw33.

River with wife and kids for lunch then my turn. Wind came in,1 run on 111/7.5 and came in to change down. Spent rest of the day on    94/6.5. Fully powered up with no where to go, a maze of kiters and windsurfers and some nasty chop.

So close and yet......But didn't die wondering today really pushed in the shitty chop. just came up short, Still would smile if I had the energy, probably should have known when I cut my leg open on the fin before I'd even hit the water.

Lots of Surprised moments and someTongue out times but in the end it was allYell. Big off to end the day, done and dusted.

Isonic 86, Reflex 6.2 rokit 32

Big breeze equals big chop and stink boats thrown in made for some interesting momentsSurprised

Combo felt sweet just need some flat water to fire it up

Speed was not to special but I dont know where to naughty came from had a good run but lots of chop so would of been happy with a 27 but 29 was a happy sightSmile

and the 75 kms I dont know where that came from either

Happy man with a grin from ear to ear

Well done on the PBs guys.

Diablo, you didn't do it on the new sail. Thats a nice big jump on the old fav. Did you finally work out how to rig the KA?

I wasn't allowed out today - really wanted to make up for yesterdays effort.

Thanks Ray Gun, couldn't quite believe it when I saw the display. I'm surprised you didn't hear the shout all the way over at Peli Pt. Best thing was I did it on the trusty old Diablo (which I then sold later in the day). A great way to finish my last sail with a Diablo. Congrats on another 2 pb's - you seem to get one every time you sail at the moment.

Thanks Windxtasy

No I am ashamed to admit I couldn't get those bloody cams onto the mast. Gave up after a few attempts because the wind kicked in and it wasn't really 7.5 weather.  Ended up getting a few pointers from Col when I watched him rig his 6.4 Koncept. Hope to get it done next time now I've seen it done.

Slappa, the board is staying but the sails are going. Last of the Diablos due to be picked up tonight and I'm getting a new 2011 6.6 Koncept this weekend (to go with the 7.5) Can't wait to test them, assuming the board is OK. Had water coming out of the vent after the last couple of sails. I thought it was the o-ring but a new one on Sunday confirms it must be getting in somewhere else. Maybe the board will have to go (especially if I can't find the f*****g leak)
