Duxbury Bay. XFire 90, BP WS 34, TR-7 7.0. Likes this combo a lot better than yesterday's GPS 6.6 / S 35.  Using a seat harness that actually feels like a seat instead of a waist harness also helped. Nautical mile was the goal :-), with averages around 25 mph and high tide.

Nice crew on the water - Nina doing freestyle to entertain the kiters on the north side, Bart, Richard, Eric, Chris, Drew, Paul, and a bunch more on the south side. Some came a bit later to catch the flat water - quite amazing how much easier it got when the wind dropped to 22 mph. Fun day.

Well done on the PB Peter, Boris' tips are paying off.

Thanks, Roo. Not so much Boro's tips, but sailing his large gear in similar wind gave me the confidence to rig a size bigger today than I would have otherwise. I did play around a bit with the trim, trying to remember everything you had said in April, and that definitely helped. The 7.0/90 combo was still a bit too small to keep the speed in the lulls. One more day where I thought I should get a 100-105 l slalom board.

Never thought I'd see the day where I post higher top speeds than Bart and Chris. But the wind had dropped a couple of knots before Chris hit the water, so I should probably credit my "get up early" skills rather than my windsurfing skills Smile.
