Bigworld 54cm custom, 24 profin, 5.4 RS4. Lynfield run
Test and tune day. Should have waited for the wind like Bruce and Micheal did instead of swimming. Was overpowered and out of energy at the end which led to a HUGE crash coming back in. (busted mast as I found out trying to sail at Shoal Bay on the way home.) Was very impressed with Bruces board - I can't wait to try the correct fin for it.

Lynfield LW to LW+2 - these guys are crazy, I'm normally still in bed at this time in the morning! CA SP53, Venom 28, mb -1; Naish Stealth 5m8 - slowly working things out - 30.553 for 500m ... great to watch the experts.
Shoal Bay - would have been fun on wave kit at about 5m0!!
|Michael (icesurf) (267km): |
500 meter run = 37.56Knots
Took a while to tune the gear for the tight course.
Sure we can find some more speed knots for this wind direction. (Sail Tune)
Nautical Mile was a single attempt & just long enough from start to finish, 160m @<15knots & another 300m @<25knots of speed.
Just need more of these Primo Days, Great to see a crowd sailing 7.30am (Bruce you need to get up earlier!)
Get well soon Craig, (darkside is too powerful & too dangerous)
