Late sail at Dutchies. Got on the water just as Lao and JJ were leaving. A few half decent puffs and had a few drags with a couple of other severne guys - definitely worth leaving work for Cool Nice to catch up with Mark and Jon as usual.

Bring on more wind (and pizza!!)

Nice to get a decent day out on the water for some distance. Did around 120km with the 8.6 which was quite draining, then swapped to the 7.8 for the rest of the session. Felt a lot like Summer towards the end of the daySmile

A perfect day for distance at Fangys today and there was a good crew all going for it, with the lure of the Fangy Five trophy in their sights, if not scoring some points for the team. I was just there for encouragement. I can't ask the boys to go out and put in a big distance and then sit on my laurels. I did not expect a jellybean.

My PB distance took four hours - pretty much non stop - although I did sit on the board for 5 minutes after I reached Boundary Island, and another 5 minutes a bit before that. I didn't drop a gybe for the first two hours (aside from a few early on where it was just too shallow to complete) so I am pretty happy about that. The gybes were coming on nicely until my hands just got too sore to hold onto the boom properly - stupidly I left my gloves in the car - today of all days! I did realise I had forgotten them fairly early on by then but as I had made good ground upwind I didn't want to go back for them. I'll get them when I go back for a snack, I thought. Well I didn't end up going back for a snack. I knew that if I stopped I would have trouble motivating myself to go out again so I just kept going. 50nm was my goal, as was getting to Boundary Island.

I think I probably broke the world record for the longest route to Boundary Island, by someone who was actually trying to get there. What is 2 nm as the sea eagle flies, took me 46 nm by water, as I was having a lot of trouble getting upwind. Fangy said the 21 delta is a bit small for a 7.5 sail.

It is interesting that my best alphas were all on starboard tack out in the "chop", whereas my best gybes by far were on port tack, in the smooth. I guess there was less wind at that end.

Definitely a top 10 Fangy day!

Well done on the PB's everyone. (sorry Shaw & Anita those last 2 pesky posters stole your beansYell) Bit more wind and smaller sail and i reckon we could have got a few more Km's. Harder to manage the bigger gear isnt it.

Nice work Craig and Alan! I didn't think any distance I managed would hold a jellybean for long - but I'm OK with that. Well done team, and especially to those who pushed their limits to score a PB!

Craig you sound so nonchalant about your 162 km as though it was a walk in the park. The rest of us are stuffed!

Yes a bit more wind would have been handy - smaller gear takes less effort and going faster would have got us there a lot sooner. Otherwise a perfect day for distance.

Alan - a good score for the Fangtastic 5 too- I think you and Decrepit (and he would have to be the favourite) are just about even for the day!

congrats on the PBs people, nice flat water, but wasn't good wind for a distance PB.

 

Talking of distance Alan, I'm sure Anita said you did 73NM, my computer makes that 135Km not 129Km. Thing is you see as it stands my Fantastic Fangy 5 score is a pooftenth better than yours, but if you actually did 135km that puts you in the lead by about 6pts. Could bear looking at more closely.

The captain made the call and the troops delivered.Laughing Well done team. Wind in Perth just never really got there.

Great job by Lunny on a massive distance for a pretty low wind day!Cool

Well done to AC1 on the PB back up and Fangy Five assault.Cool

Nice strategy from the Captain to PB but still leave herself the ton as future motivation!WinkCool

Good going on 2 PBs as well GS!Cool

Hi Mike,

I was surprised Ka72 gave me 129Km instead of 135, as it was definetly 73+nm on the dial. 

Does anyone know how to check which number is correct?

AC , firstly congrats on the distance, but let me know what your correct distance is, because at the moment, as Decrepit says, there is only a whisker in it!
Windxtasy

Thanks for the congratulations everybody. My numbers looked a whole lot better beofre Alan and Craig posted theirs, but as team captain I am very happy for them to surpass me!

Alan, do you want to put your file through realspeed and see what that comes up with? Send me your track if you don't have real speed.

I guess to be fair, both you and Decrepit should use the same software to analyse yesterdays results. I'll ask him what he used.

Mark, the wind in Perth was just as strong if not stronger (according to seabreeze) than what we got on the estuary. My guess of 12-18 is probably a bit generous. It was more like 12-15 most of the time. The big advantage of the Peel estuary being that you don't get the many big holes and gusts like you do on the river.

Well done on the PBs everyone,  Anita, a huge congrats on the gybe success rate, that sounds great.

Thanks Steve, You and Elmo have been my inspiration to keep trying with the gybes. I am nearly there now. I can salvage nearly all of my light wind gybes even if I mess them up (I turned one inmto a tack yesterday), and I am close to planing out of the better ones. I was a bit disappointed not to get an alpha PB yesterday because some of them felt really good - but I guess the entry speed just wasn't there.

I kept your distance tips in mind too. Thanks.

Hi Anita,

 

I'm sure the Fangy Five score will be surpasssed soon anyway so it doesnt realy matter about checking the distance.

Decrepit


WA
Australia
3106 days ago

I agree Alan, but I'm putting my numbers through KA72 to see what that says, but if youd like to send me your file I'll process it the same way I did mine, then we'll have to results identically processed. The we can toss acoin as to which set we use.

My email is decrepit at gmail, but you have to use the "@" sign with no gaps and put .com at the end.

Ka 72 has been processing my file for ages, this 5hz stuff takes a while, I'll be back with it's results.

Decrepit


WA
Australia
3106 days ago

Here's my KA72 results, but I'm not happy with them, it's robbed me on the alpha.

Both GPSARPro and GPS results give 2 alphas in the 19s and another 3 in the 18s higher than the KA72 result. That's the main reason I don't use KA72

2s 27.966, 5x10 26.318, 1hr 15.455, alpha 18.197, NM 22.489, dist 124.203

FFF = 219.173

 

Personally I feel the most appropriate solution is for us both to send Fangy our files, then he can work it out.

But I'm still more than happy to process Alan's file the same way I did mine.

Fangy is not lovin' your solution Decrepit :-) I am thinking that any commonly used method for result analysis is fine. Any contenders for first place that are within 2% of the highest score will enter a playoff round. The playoff being - the winner of the Fangtastic Fangyland board game! (Now that's an evil twist :-)

Evil indeed! 

While I was out sailing yesterday I was thinking that none of the real weedbergs were anywhere near as hazardous as the ones in that game!!!

Sue, I surprised myself. The reason I was not intending to be distance backup is that I didn't think I had any chance of getting close to a decent distance. Must be all that time off sailing has repleted my muscle glycogen stores.

Hey Anita I read somewhere that sailboarding uses from 500-1000 calories an hour.. No wonder I can eat anything and still lose weight when I'm sailing regularaly. If we spread that around maybe we'd get more women taking up the sport!Wink

You can see that as I got further out into the estuary the wind improved and I was able to go upwind better. That and I was getting so desperately hungry and thirsty by then that I just tried a lot harder to get to Boundary Island so I could go back and get a drink.

Anita,you are not the only one to have trouble getting out of the Nairns end. It didn't get the name of the 'hole' for nothing! On lighter wind days I have spat the dummy and walked along the sand next to boat channel to get upwind of the hole and escape to the western end.
