what a present to get early in the season. Great to see the smiling faces and they were as we had gusts around near 20knots.

Perhaps a smaller sail would have been faster but l could certainly handle the 7m. or just getting that ONE gust...Used the 87L with a 23cm weedy.. See how we go tomorrow!

15-25kts + ENE Peel st Budgewoi Lake, NSW, AU

6.6m Koncept - 87ltre isonic - 20 BP 50weedspeed

then 79ltre falcon

First speedsail since coming back from injury and the first time I've had the isonic powered up on a bearaway. Got 31.7kts on the isonic and then decided there was more than enough for the smaller board so trudged in and changed .I was getting very powered with the 6.6m and as I'm supposed to be going easy with the shoulder Undecided the plan was to take the small board out for a few overpowered runs then come in the change to the 6.2m OD for a more relaxed session playing with gybes etc.

Had my few runs which were a lot of fun, got 32.4kts and came in.. I used the OD yesterday and it rotated beautifully straight out of the bag. I had noticed wrinkles in the boom batten and had tightened that. Now it wouldn't rotate at all..I loosened the boom batten again , even took a spacer out , played with downhaul .. but after 3/4hr it would still only sit on starboard tack..YellYell Umimpressed as it was going off out there..

 Thanks to everyone who tried to help.Smile

On a good note I needed a rest so I felt better by the time I went back out. It had picked up a fair bit but I rerigged the 6.6m and went out and hung on.

 I couldn't do my usual fly upwind technique and the Bp let go a few times ( first time ever) but I put that down to being unfit and overpowered..

My cribb sheet I use to help rig the harnes lines has died so I sort of guessed the placement. When I got back in Mick pointed out my harnes lines were about 6" too far forward and the fin had a moustache..Undecided.. mm that would explain a few things.. I'll have to get better at tuning and checking things ..

 A lot of fun! Very overpowered at times going upwind and I didn't even try and gybe overpowered in the chop at the end but the gybes are starting to come back and I got some lovely planing ones in the flats..

Pulled up amazingly well today..Laughing Hopefully we can get the 6m sorted today but I won't sell my old 6m OD till it is and I'll take it today.

 Maree did well holding that 6.6m in those winds and got some great speeds!

Well done with the PB Tibor.

 

Coal Point was completly nuts today, I have never seeen it windier. The islands were not at their best, but the wind and chop in the middle was insane, Hugh couldn't bearaway on his 6.3m as it was too strong, so you can imagine the trouble I was having.

Yes Andy Coalie would have been twice as bad as Croudace Bay and it was brutal, Tuesday was so much nicer

Sue,

Watch this video. I had a similar problem with my KARace 6.3. Using the technique in the video, I checked each cam to see if they had the correct cam pressure against the mast. The top three cam were good, but I couldn't budge the bottom cam, even without any spacers. So I sanded, 2 mm at a time, off the back of the bottom cam, until I got the right cam pressure on the mast. The porcess takes a while, beacuase after each adjustment you have to rig the sail and chack the cam pressure. In the end I trimmed 10mm to get the cam pressure right on the bottom cam. The sail now rotates beatifully, with no wrinkles and full downhaul.

Thanks Drifter! I will.. I've been told to sail it a few times and see how it goes and they got it better than it was but if I continue to have issues I'll definitely try this..
