What an odd day, gusty as and from 0-25 knots with some really big holes. Sailed or should I say slogged most of the day on my 112 FSW and 6.7, had about and hour where I was powered and the rest was blasting between gusts. I sailed with Scotty most of the day, he had a 105 FSW and 5.8 and was plaining just as much as I was, Maybe a bit more...I need to work on my early plaining, I'm just too just lazy.

Got the JP Superlight wind out for a few good runs when the wind dropped, It's so nice to sail....Interesting to see when my peak speed was reached, On the FSW or the SLW?

Akim and Alex turned up when the wind was at it's worst, I'm sure they'll still get some good numbers, The wind kept up for the rest of the afternoon and was at it's best when I called it a day. I was starting to cramp up in the legs and I was getting a little cold.

I'll see what tomorrow brings, It looks like light wind so I hope to get the SuperLight out again.

CA SP50+5.5 panther

Was ready for 25-30 knots but unfortunatly only got some gusts that wre lucky if they were 20,underpowered and not big enough board either

I could not believe how cold the wind was,it's been warmer than that  in Canberra,but that water was better

A dud day for me but Alex was having a good time and had his first good test of his Naish sails and loved it

Put a GPS on Scotty and he setup his board with 4 straps and really enjoyed the extra pace it gave his FSW Fanatic and is going to stick with that setup for flatwater

CAsl45+3.7 Naish Ripper

Was keen to crack 20 knots today as we were expecting 25-30 knots of wind,but the gusts were only about 15,dissapointedFrown

Used my Naish Ripper 3.7m but with the severne mast which was really too soft but it felt great anywayTongue out

Because there wasn't enough wind I practiced some Geckos even had a go of some one handed Geckos

Bulli, NSW, AU  Couldn't find the wind today. Tried twice, rigged on the green arrows, turned yellow as I hit the water. Tired out mostly bobbing around in large messy swell, lucky to survive the high tide shore break with no breakages.

I looked at my data, My peak  speed was on my FSW, But the SuperLight was not far behind with much less wind.
