Melville - IS101, Severne S1 5.3, Drake 32.  After getting one good downwind run, and hitting the fin lightly, I thought I would take another risk.  So pleased with breaking the 30 knot that I felt it was time to give it a rest before I break either gear or body.  The other PB's were an unexpected surprise.

Can't say I like the wave sail though.  So if anyone has a cheap (prefer Severne) small cam sail with mast, please let me know.  Something around 5.0-5.5 I think?

Melville Beach, WA, AU

Windy and gusty. Great to get out on the smaller gear. Little clearance over the sand bar made things interesting.

Shaw and Jeff were enjoying it also.

Safety Bay, WA, AU

A rather ballistic arvo at the pond. Not enough water over the speed run to tempt me and it seemed a fair bit choppier and gustier than yesterday so a bit  more challenging to get a decent speed. Not a great deal out considering the breeze. Went down and had a look at Coodanup first but not enough water there either and oddly the wind was much lighter than Safety bay. Got to say G'day to Fangy, Decrepit and Ratz.

Now I feel a bit on the weary side, big couple of days.

Melville - 5.8 sonic 95. Nice cruise around, a little intense in the gusts but still good fun. good to catch up with a few people. main concern was making sure that I got the foot out of straps before gybing as this board has a habit if trapping them in. not a good thing for knees. no injuries so a good day Laughing

surprisingly flat given the strength of some of the gusts but I suppose that was the lulls letting the chop settle out.

Woodmans Point, WA

Wild session with Norts sailing as "extras" on Slowy's Mistral chopper photo-shoot.

We arrived at 4pm to a solid 25 to 30 knots and no-one on the speed strip. So we raced over there to get a few runs in before the chopper was due, but seemingly out of nowhere kiters and freestylers arrived and clogged up the run as per usual.

The chopper arrived - had a couple of hair-raising runs (for me at least) with Slowy out in the channel heading to Carnac - the swell was ballistic. A bit overdone on the 6m but the M91 and CL 28 combo was controllable enough to actually be fun. A great experience.

Point Walter, WA, AU

Great session with Mark at point Walter.

was going to go to Melville but with the low tide thought pointvwalter may be worth a look.

arrived to see the trade mark blue Honda slademobile in the car park and a loft sail flying backwards and forwards at a rate of knots.

looked very flat but gusty and that would sum it up well.

never hooked onto a strong enough gust to get a decent speed, had 36.03 on the dial so was not surpried ive been rounded down, happy with a 35.5 100m though!

will be interesting to see Mr Slades numbers, looked like he was working on tghe alphas as i left.

iso 87 reflex 6.2

dropped my new iphone 6 in car park and smashed the screen (faaarrk), anyone know the deal on replacing the screen on a 6?

It is like a scab that you just can't resist picking! Keep being sucked in by the memory of my PB at Wallyworld!

I really should have sailed elsewhere today but after JJ's report of a SB Noah I thought about Peli but couldn't muster up the enthusiasm so found myself back at Wallyworld after the W word. Lowest tide that I have ever sailed I think.

Decided to try something different and as it was so shallow went with the MXR 22 30 to see if it would work in the MSL91. It worked and was rock solid through some pretty short sharp chop but the numbers were not as fast as it felt. Probably not helped by removing half a cm on about the 2nd run!Embarassed

I think it was too small to get decent cross wind speed. Played about with mast base position but to no avail.

Got one gust going the wrong way where I felt the MXR next gear kick in for the peak and strangely exactly the same as Jonah a 35.55 100m!

Eventually switched to the KA/CL 23 which felt better across the wind but was no faster with the best run a 36+. Alpha on that set up.

Usual frustration with some great bullets but equally sucky holes and the wind swinging all over the place.

Jonah looked to be flying so not surprised he took me on the 5x.

Melville Beach, WA, AU

An enjoyable sail at Melville in a summer seabreeze (a first for me) - wind was a little gusty but there was plenty of it when it came through. Didn't really know the lie of the land but soon found the sandbar and got thrown over the handlebars. No injuries but the GT31 LCD is cactus - second one this year. Got the first one repaired so thankfully I still have a backup unit.

Used a recently purchased 6.4 Tushingham X15 today - felt like it had plenty of grunt but wasn't sure if I had it rigged correctly. Anyhow, got a few good tuning tips at the end of the session from Shane (Perth Southsiders). Thanks a lot Shane.

Mistral Energizer 110 - Tushingham X15 6.4 - Reshaped, and now shell-ground, FO 28 Weed. All good fun. :-)

Pinnaroo Point, WA, AU From all the devils this morning I decided on the local Pinnaroo Point chop. Rigged up 5.4 easy, 31 weed , 105 rocket and sailing was good. I even had 30.49 kts speed on the display. Good training  and still fun until it became really wavy and I went home to bring a wave board. I had GT switched off in the car so it recorded 2 tracks and I just discovered I cannot put two sessions in one day here. Anyway the next one was only 18 km and my Realspeed is only a demo so I don't think I can stich the tracks. Just tried but it is not doing it.

Congrats GS!

Haha Pointman, the only way I could beat you on GPSTC is to undercut you on a sail sale.

GS, you are more than welcome to borrow for a couple of months and see if you like it.

Hi GS....many congrats on the 30 knots. We both reached the same targets today....good feeling huh? ....Woo Hoo! Your words, about getting out while the going was good,  EXACTLY reflect my feelings  today !!! Cheers Jamie
