Coodanup - Mandurah. early session

Today was the only day I could sail and it happen to have some wind.!! Not as much I would have loved but..

Wanted to help the team with an hour but the wind never really came in and was underpower most of time, the highlight of the session was the 30 mins of fun I had with Mike laping around when the wind filled up bit more. The died again.. then I gave up, then wind came back, then could not be stuffed changing sail and left. 

Nice to catch up with some guys and meet others.Good to test the spot, its pretty good and effort less, with similar LG condition, but veryyy shallow! I still think LG is TOP ;) Pitty wasnt mooore wind!! It has all you need to do PBs ;)

Good to get wet and sail down there for a change..

I'm Broken, more later

Our valiant (and slightly sadistic) leader called today a distance and hour day so he could once again demonstrate to us young snapper whippers his sailing superiority.

Driving over the cut on the way down to the run it was hard to see the water through all the boats out, for the uninitiated Mandurah for 11 months of the year is a sleepy little back water, unfortunately that last month every cashed up bogan f'ken knob jockey decides to invade our sleep little back water with there POS stink boats blasting all over the place using $50+ worth of fuel to try and catch their bag limit of 10 undersized crabs which they can pick up from the Fisho for about $15.

Anyways more on these retards later.

Looking the other way over the cut I see's the seabreeze about 1km of shore, watching the road is not required as the car knows it's way down to Hardies although watching out for the dickhead tourists who slow down 30km under the speed limit so they can have a butchers at the water thimking "if I lube up my boat I'm sure I'll be able to shoe horn it in there somehow".

Once again I digress.. sorry.

Got down to Novara to see a smattering of white caps, thinking this must be an optical delusion I decide to get out the Big girl

JP SLW 92, NP RSR Eiv 8.6m, JP superlight 56cm

Hit the water @ 1015 with our Valiant leaders instruction echoing in my head, unfortunately the white caps turned out to be generated not by wind but by the multitude of F'ken boats hammering around trying to get their 10 underiszed crabs, oh well chugging is still ticking over distance. Finally after 45mins of chugging the wind finally had enough push to get my big girl up and going, I keep forgetting how much fun I have riding this board, it was fun, but the chop from all the boats stressed my love of Lumpy goodness to the extreme.

I came in for the first change down at 1245 as the big girl was getting a bit flighty with the wind picking up and the boat chop also increasing.

Quick de rig re rig and an energy bar for lunch I ventured forth again

Tabou Rocket wide 108L NP RSR E6 7.6m, Emo SS 38cm

The change was the right way to go but I found that there was a lot of holes in the wind which for added benefit seemed to coincide with the next load of boat wakes, so after sailing over to Claudesville it was back to base to go the larger Rocket.

Tabou Rocket wide 128L NP RSR E6 7.6m, Emo SS 42cm

Back out again and this was the bussiness, first time using the 42 with the board which seemed to work ok, was making good distance up wind so I thought I'l tack my way up to Liptons and launch my hour from there.

Sitting enjoying another energy bar to fuel up for the hour Snake rocks up to say G'day before resumuming his flying around Point Grey, Just after he left I counted 6 sandy sting rays cruising around where I was sitting, pretty cool that was.

So I set of on my hour, working down wind (not something I do well) all was going well apart from the wind deciding about 5 mins in to back of a touch which was a bit inconvenient as I'd actually found some flatish water, still what can you do so I carried on only to get downwind a bit and back into the middle where the chop (normal) was interesting but the baost chop was absolutely f'ken diabolocal, felt like a freestyler getting air left right and center, none of it intended none of it fun or comfortable.

Got back to base at the end of the hour as my everything was in pain from dealing with the crap especialy my ankles which were brutalised, checked the GPS and saw 87Nm on the dial, thought suck it up princess and went out again, back over to Claudesville where I found some flatish(less than knee high) and only 2 boats to deal with, so I did a few short runs over there back to almost the platform (should've done the hour there) before heading back.

Checked the GPS again only to find 97Nm on the dial, and knowing our valiant leadeer had set the task of 100Nm I set of again, This run I was seriously hurting legs were shot leading to knees starting to reverse and ankles screaming in agony. This was my last run over to Claudesville, again contending with the crap. Got back I was done, Calculated distance which would have just needed one more run to the channel marker to get the 200 up but I just couldn't get myself to do it.

Session finished at 1736.

A curse to all the Boaties (apart from the 2 who gave way)

May all your contraceptives turn to fertility drugs so that you are bleesed with multiple batches of Quintuplets so you have to sell you F'ken boats so you can get some nice stylish people movers (or small to medium sized busses) and have to work for the next 20 to 30 years to pay for the kids up bringing.

To all the arseholes with boats today who though it was great fun to go blasting in front off, beside the poor struggling windsurfer then laughing as he is lauched skywards by the mountainous wake your piece of shit stink boat generates, I hope your wife got a huge scarey 14" strap on dildo for christmas (the ones you need permits to use) and she suddenly decides she want to try it out on your freckle after evry time you go out fishing.

 

One of the hardest sessions I've had to sail, PB feels good, the rest of me doesn't, Especialy seeing as our Valiant leader casually cruised past my distance today

comments after dinner.

But I will say now, GREAT PB Elmo!!!!

Well distance mission acomplished, thanks Elmo and Fin! Didn't have the hoped for result though, those pesky pinnas have just scored a fantastic alpha! And increased their lead.

I started of with the big girl 6.6koncept and 26cm weedy, would have been fine, but I used fin bolts that were a bit too long, didn't realise until I figured out that the line of bubbles behind me and causing spiniout problems were coming down around the loose fin bolt. Was glad to come in for lunch and change down to the 53 and 5.8koncept with Keiths 17cm 50d deltoid. That felt a lot better, but as Sam has said, only really well powered up in the gusts.

 

EDIT! OK, seeing as how this is a monthly score, and I had realspeed open anyway, I've changed my trackpoint distance to doppler, and lost a Km

Great to have Sammy and Hardie back on the water with us out there today!

But I didn't see Hardy get in the smooth, that's where the deltas love to be mate.

 

And Elmo, I had no boats to deal with, and chop only 10cm at most, I would only have tried one run in your conditions then given up.

Even all the crabbers just made great depth gauges, and gybe markers.

Elmo, f'ken gold mate. Tried to read it out to the boss but lost it - Still laughing ...plus you added your own personal touch to the 'sphincter moment'. Oh and congrats on a monster PB too! Decrepit and Fin, you guys are the distance legends..full stop. Well done on another epic performance. So I am guessing that was a nice warm up for everyone and now that I am back you will all get serious and join me tomorrow for some a crack at these pesky Pinna's :-)

Alby, you're welcome to have a go counting all of them if you like, but my hour had 30gybes.

The length of the thickest area is 1.25km the longer runs are about 1.5km, so divide 200 by 1.3 will give an approximation of 153.846, not sure how I could have done 0.846 of a gybe though?

Sun 28 distance @ fangys

You can see by the colours that there is stronger wind close to Creery Island. I think the land there compresses the wind a bit. It's quite noticeable when sailing. That's why I kept my runs short, when I did longer runs out into the middle I seemed to be pumping more after the gybe, and I didn't want to pump!

Well done Mandurah Mob, and congratulations on the PB Alby! Great story too. I still think extra points should be awarded for story of the day. I hear you re the stink boats, although I would not wish such nastiness on them - see my story of playing chicken.
