JP Slalom VI 65, NP RSR Eiii 7.0, Pepe super40 weed

Spewing, had 109.5Nm on the dial some how or other the software only gave me 95.9/nmYell

Got a leave pass for the day, the forecast looked good for a distance attept so I went down to give it a tickle, when I got down there the direction didn't look good for me to achieve this but what the heck we'd give it a go.

First session was a blast had the gear beautifully dialed and had a whole lot of fun, but the wind faded as it tends to do on and easterly so commenced the change tp larger gear.

The 10m was a bit of fun for a while till it became a bit of a hand full as was the 8.6, the last rig of the 7.0m may not of been the right choice due to the wind speed but I'd has so much fun in the morning with the combo that I had to do it again.

Huge congrats to Decrep on his PB

Woo hoo, a PB at last!!! It's been a long time since the last one.

Complicated day, joined Evets for the early session, nice steady wind, Out the 6.0 on the 53 with the 23 lockwood.after about 3hrs wind eased a bit, swapped fins to the 25.5. that kept me going till lunchtime. After lunch put the 7.0 GTX on the 65cm unfortunately the 31cm woody weedy is still in surgery, so went with the 28 Herby 40deg, not quite enogh fin for the 7.0, especially in the lulls. After another 2 hrs wind had picked up nicely, so put the 6.0 on the 65. Great improvement! About 1800 wind had picked up still more put the 5.3 on the 53. Still overpowered in the gust, Cory measured 28- 30 kt gusts. unforunately by then I was too buiggered to do much with them. Also the best flat water was where I damaged 2 fins last year on unmarked rocks!.

After rolling out 100 square metres of instant lawn in a howling easterly all day at 3pm  i flicked on the new retic i dug in last week when it was 37deg and a had a quick blast on styaight offshore conditions at Glory Holes. I didn't really want to bear away too much as  was worried i wouldn't make it back so no great speeds but nicely powered up on the 7.0m!!!!Cool off to Perth tomorrow to pick up my new ReflexIII'sCoolCool

Big road trip for me to my local.... ok so only 850kms but for me that is huge Frown

This was my first sail for 10 weeks so distance was an obvious missionEmbarassed Anyway the forecast looked good so I contacted Decrepit for a distance mission.

Drove to MH previous day. Up at 3:45 and out at 0400

Rigged by torchlight and launched at 0500 before the sun came over the hills. By my first break at 9 I had 50 miles on the clock and knew I could not do a big day. I ached all over and was already struggling with technique due to fatigue.

So now my mission was to back up Decrepit who had joined me at 0600 and was flying.

ISO 86S 5.8RSSII most of the day and a bit of F2SXL RSRE11 7.8 and W52 RSSII 5.4

All in all a great days sailing with many of my MM friends. Great to see you all. Huge congrats to Elmo and Slugger on their Ps. Decrepit out sailed me all day and hugely deserved his amazing PB> One day I hope we can both get distance PBs on the same day.

 

Many thanks to Joseph and Binny for their hospitality without which I could not have done this and to Decrep for crunching the numbers and putting them in for me last night.

That is some distance you put down on the meter well done cobber, have a quiet ale to ease the muscles.

Decrepit

Thanks all well wishers.

 Sorry Mal I would have done it earlier but there wasn't enough wind.

Peter, was on the water about 6am and off it about 6.30 pm, With 4 breaks to change broken harness line, have refreshment and change rigs.

I'm not sure I believe this but GPSarPro says I did 157Km over 10kts and took 4hrs to do it. That means the 7km under 10kts took a very long time?

I make it 9hr 22min on the water.

 

My body didn't come out too bad, but my thighs felt like jelly in the last half hour, when the wind really picked up.

Had an early night, read a book this morning and had a long "Nana nap" this arvo. Wind blew again all day but I just wasn't interested!

Almost back to normal now.

G'day Mike,

In hindsite, I had reset the odometer from the previous day as I'd done over 30Nm, it's just one of those GPS things where you just have to "suck it up"

Felt rather "grainey' today, hard skin on the soles of my feet has been worn away, had a look down the run and it looked rather sweet, nut Tracey wouldn't let me go (must have looked a bit rougher than norm).

 

Tony

Yesterday went surprisingly easy for me yesterday as I sussed out that rather for rigging for comfort I rigged for the lulls that way i didn't burn up to much energy trying to get it going, the gear looked after itself except when the wind went into the 20's with the 8.6 up.

It was a fun session TRYING to keep up with Mike and Steve, ended up being a great days sailingCool

Elmo, have you tried the internal dta logger? Not sure if it will hold that much data now, but with any luck it'll have the whole session on it.

Hmm Kari if you come over it will really be on, I won't have the advantage of better wind!!!

 

Kato, could possibly have managed 300 if the wind hadn't dropped out so much midday and returned so strong late arvo.

But we can only wish for ideal conditions.

Amazing effort guys! 200kms is good for anyone, let alone without proper match fitness Steve!

Great stuff Mike - looks like 2012 is shaping up for some fierce competition in the legends category!

Congrats also to Elmo and Slugger for excellent PBs.
