The sonic 100 died today. RIP. At least it went out with a bang yesterday at the photo shoot.

sonic100

Wondered what the clonking sound was as I was sailing and found a big delam under the mast foot.

What an awesome board it has been and has done about 7.5K KM.

However a string of 23 alphas before I realised and boy does the 6.3 gybe sweetly!

Thanks to Pointman for the loan of the x-fire 90.

Good team turn out.

Wind picked up at the end and went back out on the Lorch. NM, 2sec and ave on the Lorch.

Gusty 18 to 20 knot wind - ended up stripping half a metre of ply and glass off the bottom of the board at the mid-section when I hit something.

Who is the best person to ask for advice on board repair?

Isonic 76, Code Red 6.1, Black Project 26.5 (a bit small today in the heavy shop)

Happy Christmas to all.

Fun sesh at Safety Bay to wrap up my working year Cool

Freeway traffic was atrocious, detoured onto Rocky Road and got down there by 3.

On the water at 3.30.  Saw Mark zooming around on his new 6.3 when I arrived, and I got a steady 20-25K on the anemometer, so I rigged the 6.6 TR7.  Mark came in and told me it wasn't that windy, so I unplugged the 90 XFire and plugged in the Futura 111 + 36 JP weedie.

First hour on this combo was average.  Barely cracked 30K and my Pengo's run only yielded a 27.3 naughty.

Came in and switched to the Cervantes combo...90 XFire + 7.6 TR7 + 34 weedster.

More joy on this combo.  Breeze was still only 18-22K, but I was mostly well-powered and I got most of my numbers on this set-up.  Still underpowered on the bearaways down the beaver, but I did another Pengo's run for the 29K naughty and went for a few alphas.  Bar was too choppy and I got my best alphas in the Pond.

All in all a fun sesh and now I'm ready for the weekend with the family Laughing.  Unfortunately I won't be able to escape for a sail Sat/Sun, despite the best forecast this season....Huey you're a cruel mistress Kiss

If I'd know all it took to crack 40kts was to bust a mast.... 

Was just starting to get things dialled in, first decent sail on the 102XFire with 7m CR. Mast track: check. Harness lines: check. Boom height: check. Wind filling in nicely: check. Wife at home with bottle of Champagne: check.

SNAP

Lucky for me there was a boat at hand or I was heading for the freeway. Thanks boatie! Dropped me right in close to shore.

And amazingly the Champagne seemed to bring on a "c'est la vie" moment when I told mt precious what the replacement cost was. Woohoo!

Struggled with the weed fin today, spent most of the day feeling as though i was sailing sideways.

good to meet jake and many thanks to mark for lending me fins and bolts!

Sorry to witness the passing of Marks sonic, certainly done stirling service, there wont be many boards in the world that have travelled further!

Mettams to sorrento, bit more wind than yesterday, still a bit patchy. 5.8 79l.

 

Had a couple of nasty moments when I saw black fins in the water a few hundred metres out, managed to convince myself it was a dolphin (very swept back curvy fin). And jybed near other people (a few sea kayaks going downwind so I figured jybing near them improves the odds). only dropped two the whole sail - thats what seeing some fins in the water can do for you.

Nice alpha Sean! and good numbers, Jake. One outing near the end of the month and 5 jellybeans already. How did the foot hold up?

Had it wrapped up pretty good Anita and it flared up a little bit - still far too painful, I'm favouring it pretty badly. Probably be out until it fully heals so maybe 3 weeks Frown Hopefully in time for the LOC@!

Sorry to hear about the old girl Mark. Was just chatting to a 100 owner at Peli this arvo saying what great boards they were. 

Sorry to hear about the foot Jake, hope she heals soon.

Congrats on a great corner Sean!

Yes you and the ol' Sonic have shared a lot of good times together Mark. Must be a bit sad to say good bye.

At least you have some great photos to remember her by.

Was the bar flat today or choppy?

I was too sore and bruised to sail today after yesterday's gybe attempts. Maybe tomorrow. The kids tell me I'll have to wear long sleeves on Christmas Day or my husband will be accused of wife beating.

Well done, Team even though it was a day of carnage.

Well done on the corner PB Scarrgo! Just imagine what you will be able to do with a sail rigged for alphas!Surprised

Pretty close to achieving today's goals despite a lack of solid wind.Laughing 

Nice corner Snakeyboy. CoolHope you have not done too much damage to the feet. Go and seek proffesional advice.

Pointy gets top Naughty and peak.Cool

Sorry to hear about the mast, Macka. JJ, that level of damage sounds pretty terminal I am afraidCry

Windxtasy, the bar was not super flat but much better than Melville.

Merry Xmas all. 16 points behind Man Bra Mob. Come on Huey!

Well done guys, two PB's so it has to be a good ChristmasCool

Looks like a few bits of kit were following Jakes lead and limping towards the end of the year, not quite making it. Laughing

Jake, if that foot isn't right yet, get another opinion, that sounds too long to be still crook. You need to be fit like Mali Bull for LOC.

Mark can you get hold of another?

It's almost there Mineral, it was a good 3-4mm deep chunk of flesh missing. Just needs more time off the water unfortunately. bah !

Lao Shi - I have a replacement Sonic 100 for you! History of board. I was team sponsored, ordered one with board bag had just taken delivery then stopped sailing for 5 years up until March this year. So it's a virgin board up until this year. Had x1-2 rides didn't like it at all. Been ridden by another SA Speed Demons rider Joe probably 6-8 times. Board is in perfect nick. Some paint peeling as in bag all of its 5 years in my shed. Otherwise no dings and or scrapes. Stuff all clicks sailed on it by Joe. Can take some pics and post....  peter.ciesa@ace.net.au
