iS90, 7.0RBlade, 33 CL Sl2 - Lammermoor Beach, QLD, AU SE 15-25kn

Could have easily used the 6.3 but daylight was running out. Way too messy so only got two half decent 10sec runs with the rest of the session just bone jarring.  Wind was very up and down at the start of my NM but pulled out the run when things got too hairy towards the end.

Port Douglas, QLD, AU Went down the beach for unhappy hr,After a shit day at work..Wind  was  very much off shore,looked on seabreeze and it said 25kts at low isles..Rigged 6.6m North Sail on 101 Falcon..Wanted a quick blast to try out sail, as it has just had a back yard tune up, and 2 broken battens replaced ,which i made up out of  left over bits from my scrap bin..I waddled out to the wind line about 2kms out.Wind was very up and down with good gusts and big holes all in the same breath..It wouldn't of mattered what you rigged it would of been wrong.Made the most of it for about half hr.Sail felt great it powered through lulls well and twisted off nice in the gusts, was just starting to think that i might get an ok session in.. Then it just vanished totally..couldn't f...king believe it..Wasn't even enough wind to limp home on,Had to swim my gear almost all the way back to the beach,I started to get paranoid and had convinced my self that i was getting followed by a' big shark' and the further it swam the bigger it got..Was glad to finaly get to the beach just on dark..First crap sail i have had for ages..Ed..

Burrum Heads, QLD, AU

My first run at Burrum today in a dropping wind. Tide was nice and low, so I was able to get a couple of runs in light winds behind the sand bar. It was also my first day with my brand new Ezzy Lion 6.5, Ezzy skinny mast, Streamlined carbon boom and new harness lines. Unfortunatley one of the "Radz" harness lines snapped on the first reach. A return jog back to the car to replace the said line had me wondering just how far out I actually was on the sand bar? Either way with new gear and the droppig wind I did get a good look at what Burrum could be in the right conditions. Can't wait to try it out again. It is only 2.5hrs away from my new home after all. . . .

There was 3 others out here in the middle of nowhere today. Each one of us was from a different team. GPS Team Challenge is a alive and well.

In the wind,

Rico

Billy, yeah it's amazing how I can get things done before 4.30 when windy.  That run was only about 2 km although speed for first k was only low 20's.

Jeffro, yeah my kahunas go walk about every now and then. Embarassed

 

Ed,

Haven't had to swim it in for a long time but I always find my fear of men in grey suits is at it's greatest initially but wanes the longer I'm in the water.  Funny how your mind plays tricks.

Cheers Sausage. I have not seen water so flat before. Can't wait to give it another go with "Hughie's" blessing.

Might I say that I am impressed with your session today. Lumps, bumps and all manner of things did not stop you running a good 31kts. Nor does it seem to ever. Good thing your on our side. . .
