Stansbury, SA, AU S 15-20

FF102,GP2 7.3,lessacher 28 duo weedy

Tried the GP2 7.3 for the first time and found it a very good light wind sail. Could have done with a few more knots though. Tricky was struggling on the 87 with light wind and also a large split and small split in his 6.6 KA. It was one of those days where we could have settled in for distance but with Trickies broken equipment and my sore back we called the session off early and had a few beers instead.Smile

Enjoyable afternoon.

Well it was a top 10 Hoppy day, thanks mate for the floggingLaughing Jeff lent me his AB (thats a real mate)as it was pritty marginal & my CA 101 was still in dry dock from the last crash. Rigged the 6.6 Koncept as that was all I had & plugged in the 32 Lessacher Duo weedie. cruzed out but couldnt get settled too much back hand load, stopped & eased off the down haul ahh lots better, Jeffs foots straps were girrola size so stopped & made the back ones smaller, the AB jibes a treat got my Alpha peak on the second uturn Surprised. Wasnt settled on the runs(didnt want to scrach it) so decided to head in & get the Isonic, left the sail on a moring & made the trudge back to change board, got back to realise I didn't have a mast base Cry another trudge. By the time stopped fluffing around & got back out Hoppy had cranked out an hour! Jagged a couple of gusts to have some semi respectial numbers but under done & struugled to get on the plane at the end of every run, even struggled to keep my ground having to pinch all day. after my hour hoppy stopped for a chat & noticed a hole in my sail so we decided to call it quits. Thanks for the coldies was a great end to a short session.,

Boggy Lake, SA, AU

Arrived at 1pm and it looked reasonable. Considering whether to go for a distance PB when PJ turned up, our own king of distance after a considerable absence from our lake. I heeded the omen, and my decision was made, push as hard as I could.

Started with the Tabou 100lt/Select 35cm and GP2 6.0. Wasn't fully lit, but I was planing almost all the time. After two hours I swapped it all over to the Falcon 79l and pushed for another hour or so. Pretty knackered now, but happy to have got there.

I know Jack improved his GPS numbers, but also broke a mast. Bittersweet. Great to sail with PJ again, and as always Leon was eating it up. Sooo tired now...I can't concieve 200kms, let alone 500!

[Edit: oh, a new record for my hour as well. Nice!]

Good day bad day. Just getting into it when my mast snapped over the other side of lake. Luckily car park was dead down wind, about 1.3 km.  Long walk /swim back. Loaded onto Google Earth overlay but do not know how to place on here.

Thanks for Leon, Shane and Peter for checking I was OK and keeping an eye on me.

Cheers lads. Starting to wrap my head around this lil' board, but still a handful to gybe. The rails don't bite anywhere near as comfortably/reliably as the Tabou, especially when banking in the messy Boggy chop. And it's a lot more squirrelly in the exit - the Tabou almost trims itself on the way out and all you gotta do is catch the rig flip in a position where you can immediately apply the power (read: flip early). The Falcon is a lot looser coming out and accelerates real quick, so I need to get my foot placement more precise to keep the board quiet on the exit. That Tabou is such an easy board to ride, it makes me complacent.

And PJ: we all know you're a far better sailor than those numbers suggest. I reckon you might have benefitted from a more upright fin, no weed in Bog! Laughing

[Edit Jacko: I was saying to PJ, when gear breaks in Bog, over 50% of the time it's in the furthest 50% of the lake! There's no statistical bell-curve, it's just all skewed to make you swim for it! Glad you got home okay]
