Interesting day !!! Our son came back from uni for the weekend so went to be late,3 hours sleep drive to Southend,arrive at 6 in the rain :( Sail choice is always a nightmare at the Ray as it's such a long way to come back to change !!! So that was my first mistake rigging the 5.8 which was abit under most of the morning then when it was windy enough it was too rough for me on the fastest west course and I was knackered as I was finding hard going getting upwind :( Managed only 35 kts so slow compared the the more experience sailers but actually managed my second best average :) As my technique lets me down the ssw wind was not broad  or windy enough for me today but it was fun sailing fast down the west course and round the corner on the super flat east course.
It was great to be out with Dave White,Steve Thorpe and Ian Richards and thanks for all the rigging/techique tips I received and can't wait to try them on the next windy day.
So apart from the long long walk rigging 5.8 instead of 6.4 and wearing a full wetsuit instead of a shortie a good day was had by all :)
Well done to those with PB's especially Lance who is now a member of the 40 kt club !!!!

Nearly a perfect day... just too square. Had one wind shift that gave me a good angle... other than that, all runs around 35-33 knots... another day !!!

A great day, warm weather and wind. Finally managed to get 40 up on the dial if only as peak speeds but still progress nonetheless with some new PB's. Getting used to the board and sail and feeling more comfortable. By the time the wind really started going though I was exhausted and then trashed my new race sail so time to stop.

Good to see lots of people out, let's hope it's not six months before the next go!

Well done on the pbs folks, as 24 kt alpha will be nice to post when it comes Mike. Thanks for posting info on kit used, always interesting to see what others are using/ match together/ are going fast on!

 

Are you close to signing up Dave White and Steve Thorpe, maybe you can give some of the international teams a run for thier money!
