Lake Illawarra, NSW, AU. Primbee (where else!) Westerly, gust up to 30 knots.

A great day at the lake, with the wind best early in the day and then late in the day (too tired to take full advantage of the late blowFrown)

Probably had 20 windsurfers out and still plenty of room on  the water and in  the car park!

One board, one sail and two fins all day. A bit underpowered in the middle of the day, but the Severne 5.6 sail has very good low end power to cope with the lighter winds. Great to compare the MU delta slalom 17.6 fin with the Vector speed weed 23 (thanks for the loan GarySmile) - really impressed with the grip and speed of the Vector, and has some reasonable upwind ability. The MU delta is better at getting the speed board started - doesn't drag weed and has a bit more lift, but is more sensitive to sailing style. My top 2 sec on the Mu delta was 36.3 knots, so there doesn't seem to be much difference in speed between the fins. I think I'll have to get the Vector.....Money mouth)

Good to see Mark T and Nathan B cutting up the waterCool.

Nice to get out again. Had lots of fun on the chopped board, it is actually quite a good boad. 6m sail was probably a bit on the small side for the wind we had.

Lake Illawarra, NSW, AU Had a great sale today, short but sweet, great to sail with everyone.

Primbee, Lake Illawarra.  Hypersonic 105l, select XXL weedy, 6.6 Gaastra Nitro 4.  Lake looking fantastic - quite a crowd as well.  Unfortunately came a cropper early and smashed my right quad on the mast.  Continued sailing but really could put any force through it for the rest of the day which was a real bummer. 

Hanging for a smaller board for these westerlies!!!

Yep that was on the fridge door, that board gybes amazingly. The John hall special is needing repairs. The deck has gone soft under the footstraps and I dont have the time at the moment to do the work with the house reno's and stuff.
