Fantatic Falcon 80 Slalom, MUF Delta Speed 19, Gaastra Nitro 4 6.6.  Notched up a PB - would love to have gone harder with some flatter water.  Still another day or two of highly promising wind.

Primbee, NSW, AU     No where to hide on the lake today, the SSW was not a good angle, hoping for more South.

Primbee, NSW, AU SSW up to 30 knots.

Great to be back on the small kit - last time must have been December last year! Good to catch up with quite a few of the team. Heaps of new gear on displaySmile.

Not quite the predicted wind - (no brown arrows here), and a bit gusty. Very hard to find any flat water so speeds nothing to write home about. The new R4 5.6 and 6.2 got a bit of a workout today - love the 5.6, but the 6.2 needs a bit more tuning to get its sweet spot.

Used the iS 76  and the W49 - probably liked the W49 better in these conditions, even though I was gybing it like a beginnerFrown

Used the Vector Weed Speed 23 in the iS and the MUF Delta Slalom 17.6 in the W49 - both felt good.

tough sailing today! very short runs and best speeds running into the shallower water (scary!)

hopefully last time i have to use a wave sail on my beloved iso80

Primbee, NSW, AU  Good to be out with Glen, Terry, Mark and Phil. Not a lot of flat water but there was a fairly short run behind the jetty. You were looking fast Ekas.

Pretty Good.  Your brother, Glen and I were running in behind the Primbee Jetty but still pretty bumpy.  After tracking back upwind to the Primbee launch spot to finish the session, there looked to be some pretty nice water furthe south - not protected by anything but just beautifully flat.  Too tired to tackle it though.  Keen to hear to Mark and Glen went in their second session when the wind went up another notch.

Any day with a PB and unbroken gear and sailor is a good one!!

Great PB's Eckas - 35 knot 2sec - woo hoo. No flat water to be found today so unlikely to beat that in the arvo.

That new rocket looks great TerrySmile

Thanks Bushy.  Where did you hit your top speed?  Did you find any magical flat stuff that between us we hadn't discovered thismorning?

Hey Mark, I think the 2 sec was running west of the jetty? had a few 36's south of the launch area - I was a bit chicken to go into the shallow smooth stuff near the shore. The wind direction just was just not right for any flat water with good wind on it.
