Foreshore Rd, Botany, NSW, AU 15-35kt NW || 118 Manta/94i, 7.0/6.0/5.0, 46FO/33V-Max/32BP

Launched around 9.30am for some easy planing on the larger combo, but it got tough pretty quickly. Built up to a gusty 30-35kt with a heap of chop. A lot of changing gear and a hard earned 30km. Looking forward to seeing how things panned out at Primbee...

3 from 3... after 4 months off I've caught up! Well no where near actually, but I'm sore enough not to care right now. 

Every sail was wrong today. Broke a Loft 5.5 on the second run, just the batten that sticks out over the boom... it's now with Neil at Baracota sails. 

TRX 6.3 was mostly good, too big, too small, just right, but not quite enough for the big 40 today.

And the 7.0 stayed in the car park half rigged. In hind sight I should have used it and left the 6.3 behind.

 

Hey, here is a new one.... have you ever had a mast and extension fight SO WELL together that they form a pressure seal? Mine did, and after a fall, I heard movement and checked... thank goodness, as the mast had moved so only 1/3 overlapped the joint. Spent about 1/2 an hour rerigging it in the water (Thanks Dean for your help!). 

Maui Ultra Fin 23cm is now about 21cm.... Naish speed 60 going strong, and sails... well best left unsaid. 

Good gang out today, despite being a 'work day'...

31kt NM was fun... 1st run of the day. Top speed was the 3rd run. 4 of the top 5 2sec speeds before changing sails. 

Ahhh what to choose:

Andrew, good effort up foreshore. How choppy was it?

Hey Berowne. Despite zero southerly ground swell and a lowish tide it was still really choppy. I guess at over 30kts the other variables had less of an effect. 😬

Berowne, looks like you were barely off the wind for your 2 sec.
