Another good day but the wind wasnt as consistent, around 20-25 with occasional gusts to 30 knots. Used my 6.2 and Exo TB62 then TB58.

My best run would have been a ripper but I managed to pop out of the harness lines, hit 33 but still accelarating when I tensed up and lost the harness line. Well, no wipeouts atleast. Smile

A great afternoon on the water. Wind was a bit up and down so rigged up my 5.7m Voodoo wave sail with the 93 ltr S-Type. Was focusing on my gybes today to see if I could better my Alpha 500 from yesterday. Unfortunately this didn't happen, but I did nail some more gybes which was good.

On looking at my data, it has a record of a 38.98 2 second peak and a 10 second peak of 35.975 which just can't be right as there is no way that I went that fast and the leg that shows the peak is an upwind run. So I have discounted that peak from my 10 second aveage and used the following 4 (Is this ok?) Don't know why I got the anomoly, I have deleted the invalid in Real Speed.....

Looks like we may get another seabreeze tomorrow, so will be down the beach again :) Have 2 fins to trial, so lets see if I can make 38 knots for real he he he

Jonathan, I must have passed on my GPS gremlin, I had no spikes today. Maybe it was all those planes, bit daunting having to jibe in front of 2 plane loads of people watching you.
