Good fun in the sun, Lots of wind and lots of boaties messing up the water.
Got a bit too much for the 107/6.7 combo after a while but couldn't be stuffed changing down.
Sailors beware, got a parking ticket for my troubles

JP Slalom 112, OD 6.2 CF 34 then CF 38. Pretty happy with some more PBs! Found the 34 was a little loose so tried the 38 which was great across the wind, maybe a touch on the large side but got a 32 on the bigger fin so great result. Lots of people out, great day on the water!

todays mission was to get some K's on the clock so top speeds were not the priority,as have been a bit slack in the K department since snapping my forearm in August.hit the 60 k mark at 6pm and started to head back to shore so as to save some arm power for tomorrows session,and then it happened......................just as I was doing my last downwind run to the beach travelling at about 28.5 knots when something(the ray) LEPT OUTA THE WATER! about a meter high right in my path and slamed across my shins and then back into the water.I keept sailing back to shore yellin WTHF? WTHF?with a nice bit of pain coming from my back foot.trudged up the beach with a nice oozing of blood gushing outa my foot with every step.
So off to Freo hospital I go ,only in there for an hour,lotsa flushing out of the wound and taped it together,thankfully just a clean slash from the barb so it should heal up well/quick.must check my footstrap as i think it saved my foot from a longer slash.
Thanks to the bloke who wrapped me foot up on the beach ,there'll be beers for you tomorrow.
