Quick sail with the Team. Forgot my harness. Lucky Steve had a spare one! Thanks Steve for the loan.

Did anyone find a Yellow & Black Handel Pillips Screw Drive. I must have left it on the grass somewhere.

Very Gusty. Happy with my 28 knots in chop. Never got over to the mud bank when the wind swung.

I-Sonic 101, 6m VMG, 31cm JP Weed.

MARK J. GET WELL SOON! WE ARE ALL THINKING ABOUT YOU.

Queens Lake, NSW, AU

Falcon 99 Slalom and 7.3m HSM GPS, 34cm FO Weedy

 

Short Sharp sail today. Wind was gusting from glassy to 20-25kn. Decided to take the big board and 7.3 to hold me up through the gusts. Would have loved to have had the 79 or the Falcon 51 but there is no way I could have tacked it all the way up to the mudbank. 

 

Mud bank was pretty bumpy today with the full tide, not bumpy like the middle of the lake, but not the smooth water we have become accustomed to. Boo-Hooo.

 

Caught the tail end of a couple of the bigger gusts - my first run across the bank was a cracker - fully lit heading downwind between small rolling chop - the shallow water at the end smoothed it off and it felt real fast for the big gear - that was the 37kn run......a new pb for the Falcon 99.This was an "edge of the seat run" that was teatering on the boarder of either disaster or glory - thankfully it was the later.  

 

Sail was cut short as I had a massive stack bearing off for another run which felt like it was gunna be a cracker, did something bad to my neck so i floated in the water for a while to get reoriented, but didnt feel right, felt woozy and had a vom to feed the fish, so I called it a day. Would have loved to have sailed for longer today to get my 5x10 up as I didnt get enough time up on the bank to get in enough good runs. Next time.

 

 

Poor Greg had a paddle back from the mud bank. I saw Steve go, and preseumed that greg had left too as I saw a blue sail on the water down near the carpark. Turns out the blue sail was Raf's and greg was paddling home after breaking a uni - sorry I didnt see you Greg. Shit of a paddle - I hope the back mends quick!!!!

Wallis Lake, NSW, AU. Sailing club. SW 20-35 knots. 4.5m and Carbon art 93 a good combo, but still sheeting out on the gusts - nuclear. Great to have a sail after so long without wind. Very choppy and gusty, but had a fun session.

 Been away from the computer for a while, and this is the first time there's been any wind for ages. Good turn up today.Chris, Andre,Pete, Rob, Bill, Anton and Ella having a good go today in this wind.Well done!! A few kiters, and a new guy Cyril,Cirrus? from Newy way.

Wind was SW then turned more SSW-South at about 15-25 then 25-30+ at times. Plenty of weed, and lotsa chop.Had three sessions on F2Axxis 262 Curtis B&J 25.5 Gaastra Poison 4.7, then Vapor 5.5 and SL79 and vector 27, then Hawk 93Ltd with the 4.7 and Curtis.

Must say it was quite a handful and hard work today, as the wind really kicked in. Good to be back on the water, but I feel out of condition.

 Go Marauders!!!

Big day to day, havent ever seen that many folks at Canton. Fanatic Falcon 125 (too big really for the day) 6.6m North Natural (could have done with a more stable sail). Happy chappy!!

5.9 loft sail. Gusts were hard to handle. Looking forward to coming back to Canton

Marmong Point, NSW, AU.  Got hammered today. Gusts to 35kt and big messy swell.  Never comfortable or secure, and it showed. Still survival  is fun to, right?  Hats off to Big Tom (http://gpsteamchallenge.com.au/sailor/view/958) for having the guts to go out for a second and third time.  Used 5.8 Sailworks Revo, Starboard Kode 114.  Later used a Angulo Sumo 150 just to give me a bit better directional stability and not get bounced so much.  I know if I can commit to the harness more I wont get bounced so much or tire my arms so quickly.  Knowing and doing are two entirely different things unfortunately.

Well done to Greg Kiskarparti (http://gpsteamchallenge.com.au/sailor/view/3489), and to Andre and Jamie from the Marauders on some excellent PBs in tough conditions.

Lucky man was all. It was pretty hairy pulling up on that run. i just let it run as she was fully lit pointing downwind - felt awesome - never had that before. Tinkered with the fin, mast possie and harness lines too- all felt in the groove today until that stack undid me

Well done for the PB,s Milsy,Andre and Jamie, great effort.   Me, I turned up after work and the lake was white.  Every one was leaving after a big day so I get all my gear out, start rigging, downhauling then BANG.... that's ok I've got more rope.  Not my lucky day, the downhaul pulleys on the sail broke.  The sail's old anyway, time for a new sail.

Well done to all the Marauders, especially the Cantonics. Looks like you had a great session. Some great numbers to all.

Went to Ocean Beach, Umina and got blasted on my 4.7 wave sail and 80L wave board. Gusts were 35 knots and at times it was almost impossible to gybe! Messy big waves until the tide went down. Then they became more user friendly (just).

Lots of hot wave sailors out with the usual kite crowd.

No GPS today as I was flat out just hanging on, let alone trying to go fast....
