Great session at Sanctuary Point with Jem and Arie in tow. 17-22 knots.

This may be my last session in NSW. Heading off on Monday for the 3 week road trip back to Perth. Decision point at Merimbula if the forecast looks good for Sandy Point.

Forced by Chris to leave Arie, get out in the water and have a sail after a 9 month absence.  A bit of a shaky start but got the hang of it again quickly.  Hope to have more sessions when we are back in Perth.

Melville Beach, WA, AU

went for a bit of a cruisier sail today on the same kit as the day before

went for a few km's and tryed to see what sort of alpha's i could get out of it

sailed down to peli and then back up to smelville

didn't do any proper runs or bear aways today other than sailing really deep downwind in the middle of the river to get to peli

so pretty happy with the speed

Pelican Point, WA, XFire 102 + 36 Talon, *B 121 + 44 CF, 7m CRed

Got home at 5.30 and commented to the beloved that it was quite windy. She said "off you go then" Surprised Bless!

Work clobber off, boardies on, car packed, out the garage 7 minutes Tongue out Rigged and on the water by 6.01pm Cool

25 had got a leave pass too and Troutty was out too.

The wind didn't stay in for long but I plugged in the big board and had some of the best water time in ages. It's sooo long since I've been on the water at sunset, what a great feeling.

Happy days Laughing

Awesome day at SB. Tried hard for an alpha PB on the big board first. I was pretty confident I got one but maybe I was outside the 50m.

After a couple hours I got sick of doing alphas around kiters so plugged in my small board and went for a blast out the front. As usual it took a while to get the old board dialled in but once it was I had some cracking runs along the beach and then down the bar outside the pond. Had an absolute blast flying along on the tail across the waves out the frontLaughing. Unfortunatly it turned out the run was just short of a nm.

Good to tick off the 30kt 5x10 PB.

Yeah Ian, great work on the 5x10 ya barstard, I just start getting a bit closer and you decide to make it harded for meLaughing. Checked out your file and the best Alpha was 22.03 @ 68m. I'm guessing it was on your Isonic as it was only 5 min into the session. Anyway, well doneCool I'll give you a ring later this arvo
