Stansbury, SA, AU South 12-17knots
AB67+, NP 6.2 Saber, 33 akuni weedy. then Sputnik
On the water by 2 and sailed around for an hour before Tricky and Pete arrived. The AB67 was underfinned so swapped to the ever reliable Sputnik and settled in for km's. Was soon overtaken by the Kinetic, KA6.6 rig Tricky was using and he was faster on port and starboard tacks, was sailing well. Was faster than the combo Pete was using ( fanatic Falcon) and Pete was enjoying the conditions as well. The forecast was for the wind to pick up steadily to 25knots by about 8 and by the time i came in at 7.30 it was nearly there. Great sail today with the guys.

Wow what a sail solid sea breeze pretty steady 18-20knts, I was just not up for it, 2 weeks driving tractors had made me soft, was stuffed after the first 30 min but I did hang out & got a 2nd wind to keep Jeff company as he was Sailing like he was possessed making out like Iron Man knocking out the Km's. I pike'd it at 7pm 30 min before the low tide = flat water and the forecast best wind Jeff just kept on going (Carl better watch out might have a new energizer bunny) & had some smoking runs! Did blitz Jeff on the reaches in & out but did not have the stamina to knock out the big numbers. Stopping & talking/resting never helps the hour time
