Melville Beach, WA, gusty as ! good fun, had to stop once I was getting tired. Didnt really trust there was enough water a lot of the time. KA 6.3, Mistral 112, tried a 21 delta for the start of the session then a 28 weedy. The delta was fun but did tend to lose its grip every now and then. The weedy just had me worried about hitting the bottom. Great to say hi to a few people.

Melville Beach, WA, AU,

M91;27 Tribal 27 WS;Reflex 6.2 then an Overdrive 5.4

Some good fun trying to find the bullets tried a 5.4 overdrive that I have had for over a year and never used it made things more managable but top speeds were with the 6.2

Was all set for the drive down to liptons but it was getting late and I got a message that it was not too good so stayed local.

Spotted Jeff and Lester enjoying the wild stuff

Started off at Safey Bay but quickly realised Peel was going to go off. Snake your a champ mate awesome sailing. Firebob good to meet you that Carbon Art really looks the part.

Peel Inlet, WA, AU 96 Supercross 5.5 Gator 31 JP Weed. Awesome day! My first sail at Liptons, had a lot of fun. Would have liked to be able to get into the flats and have a cammed sail but alas use what you have. Caught up with Tim, Jake, Ken and Anita. Think most of the team came away with PBs or at least a very impressive result! Was good to get a feel for the area nad talk to a few locals who handed over some great knowledge (beware of the bank!). I think just after my 2 sec peak that I got chuckked by a gust and went skimming like a stone along the water. Nothing cracked beside a big smile. I'll be eye balling a few smaller weedies for the next while so I can get intot those flats!

Liptons, WA, AU. Fun session in some pretty windy stuff for the most part. Great turnout of Pinnas with everyone pushing hard - awesome to see. Cool Never really liked the corner for wind - there's so much waiting around for gusts, and so many underpowered run, so all the best runs were over at the start of Pt Grey closer to the point, which was consistently windy, but also a super short run (wind wasn't across the full run). The runs were quite peaky and the 5x10 suffered a bit but really fun when the gear was powered up! Got my 40 for 2016, yeeeehar! Cool

Liptonlicious!! What a great day to be at Liptons. Plenty of smiling faces and good wind to boot. I had one target today and that was to get over that 37knot hump which was starting to become inpenetrable. Great to see so many out and some big PBs being being broken. Now to crack 39!!

AAAARGGGH! I spent nearly two years on 33.97 before I could crack 34. Today I got a 35.18 on the dial and it has been rounded down to 34.999! Will it take two years to get a 35 2 sec?

edit - whew! the GPSTC site has rounded it up to 35.00 Yay!!

An interesting day. Looking at this morning's forecast I suggested a road trip to Liptons. Later the seabreeze graphs were not looking too promising, and a Fangy report from Coodanup sounded really good, so I called in there to check it out. "Acres of ripples" was the report, and it looked good except it turned out that those acres of ripples were very shallow and studded with weedbergs. Sailing through them was like playing dodgem cars. When the wind picked up and I needed to change down sails, I decided that a change of venue would be wiser and headed off to Liptons. 

I arrived at Liptons to find a very excited crew. It seemed just about everyone had scored PBs. Hardie said "There's a PB for the taking as long as you don't rig too big". I quickly rigged my smallest stuff and headed out only to be overpoaered on that. Amazingly I managed to hold it all together for one run and was amazed and excited to see 35.18 on the screen. I wouldn't have believed it except the 10 sec was 34! To think that three days ago I cracked 34 2 sec for the first time and now I have a 34 10 sec. I had a couple more runs which exceeded my 5X ave so I tried really hard to get 5 good runs but it wasn't to be. I would hammer through the chop powered up and then there would be no wind where the smooth stuff was. I would have liked to try out my fave spot down by Ward Point but it was late and it would have taken ages to get back. Eventually the wind fizzled and I gave up, but luckily just made a 5X PB anyway.

I am pretty sure my 2 sec and 5X were faster than most of the drive down on the freeway. It looked like everyone was leaving Perth to go south for the holidays. The only evidence to counter that argument was the clogged up freeway coming back into Perth as well - all the people like me who have to go back to work tomorrow.

I am excited by my 35, and my 5X PB, but wondering what might have been if I had arrived earlier, or if I had used the 47 board, which would have been better considering how inconsistent the wind was.

Sorry I was last off the water. I missed catching up with everyone and enjoying the buzz of PB excitement.

First time I have used the 4.9 Koncept on an rdm mast. I think it works!

all numbers checked and verified!

First time to speed sail Liptons as I missed the big day on Xmas eve. put on the 25 weedy which was just short enough to go over the weed without losing too much speed. had the first few runs and was getting 32s and 33s. Tim let me use his 6kg weight vest for a run and thats when I noticed the 37.1 knot 2s peak on the GW60. the Canmore showed a knot slower 2sec max so I was doubting the 37. Fortunately the GW60 data has been verified.

Finished the day with some gybes which were nice to do on such flat water.

A day to remember for myself and fellow Pinnas. Nice to meet Decrepit, Stroppo, Shane, Oaf and other mandurah regulars. I will have to come back soon.

Thanks Slowboat for lending me the fin and Tim for letting me try out the weight vest. I might also need to invest in a vest (on second thought a water bottle  would be a safer option as it wont sink you in deep water).

Boz, sensational numbers. I think you may hold the record for best numbers in your first month with the GPSTC. How I wish you had bought a gPS sooner. I have been waiting months for you to join the team.

Gustenzo - great work on two PB's. It was lovely to see you again.

Tailwind, super river speed. You would have smashed it at Liptons today. I didn't get there until around 4 

Jake - sensational numbers all round again today.A third best 2 sec and a second best 5X. What a week you are having. Well done, and thanks for the support.

Ken - huge PBs! You are sailing so well, and your gybing technique looks beautiful

Sounds like it was a fun arvo, Anita you were certainly hunting down the best spot and deserved to take the 35. I was on my way to liptons and wanted to get a Fin from Slowy, when I gave him a call he said he was at Liptons and there was no wind, he was thinking of rigging a circus tent. So that made up my mind to stay local.

Boz, next up 40Kn well done fantastic session.

Gustenzo, the smooth is adictive nice pb's

Awesome PB's Nick and Ken - incredible speed increases - magic. Tim - I knew you would crack big speeds - 40 coming up. Anita - I think you'll crack 40 on a goldilocks day!!! Vince - nice PB. Jake - top stuff as usual. Bad luck Craig for not getting down there - you would have smashed a 40 for sure

Anita congrats on you continued onwards march. I do feel for you getting frustated as you approach the 35. We all have our personal targets, my 2 second has stalled me for 5 years, my smile will be huge when I finally beat it! And the the next day it will be another target to beat :-)

34.999 explained:

To find out what is 34.999… as a fraction, identify the repeating sequence or pattern, known as reptend or repetend of 34.999 recurring.

The infinitely-repeated digit sequence of 34.999… can be indicated by three periods. For example, 34.99999… as a fraction (repeating 9, the last digit) = 35 .

Alternatively, a vinculum, that is a horizontal line, can be drawn above the repetend of the fraction of 34.999. In addition, one can sometimes see the period enclosed in parentheses ().

Here, we use the overlined notation to denote 34.999 repeating as a fraction:

34.999 =35 
34.999 =35 
34.999 =35

It is clearly 35 Smile

Wind is always hard to estimate at Mandurah because the Seabreeze graph wildly under-estimates in southerlies.

I was in too much of a hurry to get on the water to use my windmeter, but the wind was not blowing me over so it was less than 30 knots.
