Fangy's, fun sail with good crew out, just a bit up and down, frontal winds, not a seabreeze.



Elmo (31413km):

Tabou rocket wide 108L, NP RSR E7 7.0, Pepe weed 60º 25cm, JP weed 36cm

Franga's good crew out, started with the smaller fin attempting the hour 25mins in blowing harder than the breeze decided to write of the run and change up fin which was cavitating a fair amount.

Changed to the 36 and found the tide had dropped 3m in the time it took to swap over the fin, which wasn't realy to much of an issue as the fin was being rapidly abraded away anyway.

Twas definately quicker with the 36 and some nice fun runs, but eventualy the wind droped of more and the tide felt like it was dropping some more.

Had a lot of fun, a nice way to spend an arvy

Good conditions for the first sail in forever.Actually made most of my jibes.For me a successfull jibe is a downwind turn of about 180 degrees where I dont fall off.Good fun.

Met Toby at Wamba st and it looked deep enough, so waded out in boots and smugglers, found it knee deep about 20m out. Interestingly both Stretch and I decided on using 5.8s. He thought one of us must be wrong, but it seemed to work for both of us.

Must admit I don't understand how sail size works with different size sailors???????

I went with the 19cm 50d stainless palm, carbon weedy, plugged into the 48cm board. This combo fely nicely balanced and I was surprised how well the 19cm fin worked in the chop.

The crew arrived fairly quickly after that, great to have a nice turn out to keep Toby company.

'ken suggested trying a NM, followed him all the way to boundary Island, but decided I didn't want to go behind it in it's wind shadow, so abanded 'ken and went for it. Too choppy and wind too up and down for me to do much good, but the 28 is a bit better than the 26-27 I was expecting.

Longest sail for a while, trying to lift our hour and distance, was tempted to keep 'ken company and go for the 100kms, but my shoulder started to complain, so I thought it would be better not to stress it anymore and risk delaying full healing.

Had a really fun sail. The longest I've been on the water for a long time. Great to see so many people out and nice to meet Toby. Well done on all the PBs Toby.  I only went out later in the afternoon, but took a few photos in the morning. Will try to post a some on here after dinner and shower.

Nice and tired now.

Great to see that you guys all had fun & managed to enjoy a nice team session. Doesn't seem like you've had very sailable conditions on the weekends lately so hopefully that's starting to change for the better.

Some cracking PB's there Toby, your absolutely smashing them out Smile Hopefully you'll get the chance to further improve on them during your trip South & get in some more great sails Cool

Need some top speed tips!!!!! This speed sailing is complicated!! Firiebob when are you round this way??
Decrepit

Well toby, there may be a clue in how close your 5x10s are to you top speed.

You typically have a 1kt difference most other people are over 2kts. This is possibly because you aren't bearing off a bit more in the gusts, that should get you another kt.

Also that fin I lent you today, was probably a tad big, I was using the next size down. When going fast, fin area is an appreciable part of the wetted area.

When going dowwind you don't need a lot of fin, so you can sacrifice some upwind ability for down wind speed. I've no idea how much faster you'd have gone with the 19cm instead of the 20cm. Might be an idea to do some experimenting while you're here.

Think we need to do some experimenting first toby.

Stretch got his PB on a 5.8sail and my 19.5cm 45deg. It's also my PB fin with a 5.0 sail.

Also depends where you'll be sailing, at what time of year. As you said it's all complicated!!!!

with your board and sails, the fin I lent you today would cover most bases but if you just want to tune for max speed with the smaller sail a 19cm 45deg or 17cm 50deg.

Musings from Relay for Life with 13, 13 year old girls: It's now after 2:30am. Most of the kids have crashed, but a few are hanging in there on a diet of chocolate lollies and chips. I have done a few laps of the oval and chatted with a few other committed souls. The wind has dropped, the dew is on the grass and it seems cold for late October. Now for the long hours before dawn. Hopefully Ratz is pulling a night shift as well to keep me company in spirit. Thanks for all the photos Paul. It was great to see such a good Mob turn out. I am missing Wazzasaggymanbra. Not for his sailing mind you, I just feel sure I could have convinced him that he would have been a better man if he had taken my place here. It's a small consolation that my sacrifice today seems to have paid a handsome dividend in jelly beans and good times. On one of my trips home to get supplies, I stopped to have a quick chat. It was good to meet Toby at last, albeit very briefly before he went charging back out. I was a bit disappointed with the degree of smooth. The surge pushed in higher than I expected and covered all the weed banks. On Friday there was a carpet of green running from Wamba east to S bend. On Saturday the only sign was some areas of quite small chop, but no magic carpet ride. Hopefully lower tides, sunshine and sea breezes will improve matters. I stuck around long enough to see Stetchy and Cap'n Calm put the pedal to the metal. I still really like watching someone fully locked down and flying. Especially when you can drive along next to them at the speed limit and not leave them behind. Don't get me wrong, I would prefer to be the sailor, but if I can't be, watching the mobbers get some smiles on the dial is a fine alternative. Which brings me to the numbers and Fangy trophies. Stretchy has made an ambitious early bid for both trophies. His 5x10 has topped the table, but his 10% handicap has relegated him to the back of a crowded field of Hards, Elmo, 'Ken and Cap'n Calm. The end result I think, allowing for it now being 3:00am and my mental maths somewhat deteriorating, is; Flying Fangy : Hardie Fangtastic Five: Cap'n Calm Finally, great work on all the PB's Toby. Keep em coming :-)

Hey Toby, no more Master Chef, now it's Mr PB, good stuff mate Cool

Wednesday we start our road trip back to WA, no idea how long that will take but no caravan just our son's Mazdarati. Fang the Border Patrol wont catch us so no point setting up gate.

Good to see so many team mates on the water and thanks for photos Paul, a Halloween dance party ?

Great PB's yet again Toby....nice work.

Good to see you all had a good day at Fangys. I miss the place and the company.Cry   Nice photos 'ken.  Fortunately the school holidays are not far away so you'll be on the water after your morning paper round is finished Fangy. I expect great numbers from you.
