Put the knitting needle away for a quick blast at Peli, bit choppy but not too bad, good to see Ricey and Vince out there as well as Neil, just caight up with Greg as I was about to leave I'm sure he'll put in a stonking Nauti and expect to see some good speeds from the boys who ventured down south. Was good to be back on the race sail the little KAR got some grunt in it.

Pretty much out of control with a 15 year old 5.4 wave sail so I packed up and watched Woody and Windxtasy. My geriatric sail rigged really nicely on the RDM mas and carbon boom, but with non-existent twist. Maybe should have shoo'd the family of rats out of the 5.0 and tried that.

I made it over the bank with a Delta 18 but was too scared to try at speed, despite the tempting smooth. The seagulls walking around picking up worms was very disconcerting.

Pelican Point, WA, AU

Arrived about noon, moderate wind and very low tide. Rigged 6.0Koncept with 105Rocket and a 19cm delta that I have just modifed.

Had a few runs and the delta managed to clear the flat water shallows, but the wind picked up significantly.

Rigged 5.0Koncept, 80L RRD, 20 weed fin special. They worked well and enabled me to keep sailing the flat shallows, where hardly anyone else was, except later when the kiters came out to play.

All in all a very good day: I have not managed a 30+ for ages, and to get it at Melville was a bonus.

Great to see Boz risking a run in the shallows with a larger fin and scoring 36kts; probably would have been faster had he not been scouring a shallow groove in the sand.

Good to see Vincent out playing on his wave board.

Whoooohoooooo. What a day! Not such a good top speed  I had to flatten out the 5.8 ( you were right Boz it was too big) so it killed the top end and just felt wrong.

But what a blast! Toured around the river with a grin for hours. It's days like these that make you feel alive.

What a top day for wind. Shame I wasnt able to make the most of it. No excuses. Just sailed like Crap. Still enjoyed it though! Every day sailing is a good day. Well done to Geoff who I am told will post today. Good to see Rob, Ben, Anita and Chris making the most of the conditions. Manta 61 Vapor 6.4 wp 27

Farrrk that was windy Surprised

Overdone on the M112 + 7.0 TR9 + 33 Tribal WS combo, but I foolishly left the 6.6 at home thinking "Nah it won't get to 25K+ today".  Well it did and then some, with gusts over 30K.

I knew the tide was super low, so I went for an exploratory cruise and tested the depth out on the point, shallow but do-able was the conclusion.  Yeh nah Frown

After a hell fast run that got me a 39K on the screen and a 36.7K 10-sec I was pumped for more, so I had another crack.  Unfortunately I went a little too deep, grounded the fin, and had a massive stack at 36K.  Somersaulted twice and came to rest in shin deep water.  Quick check, I can still feel my fingers and toes...all good Laughing

The kit wasn't so lucky.  Snapped a mast, the tendon ripped right out of the mast base, blew a panel in my sail and snapped a harness line, which no doubt saved my boom.  Snides was standing in the shallows filming a sailor on a Wally, and he came over to lend a hand and helped me haul the mangled mess into the beach.  Very lucky not to injure myself, it could've been a lot worse.

So a disappointing end to my sesh, after less than an hour on the water.

Still I managed a PB peak speed for Peli, and another fast mile.  I was crazy lit on the mile and even after rounding up to approach the chop at a more manageable angle I was still averaging over 32K.  The last 300m killed it when my speed dropped below 30.

The alpha track was too shallow this week, so I was sailing further out in deeper, and choppier, water, so no chance of repeating last week's feat of a 25K+ alpha.

Melville Beach, WA, AU 54Manta, 4.9K, 18 Kestrel

Strong and gusty wind, very low tide but not very flat, not enough fitness, and not enough courage to send it over the shallows. 

Not only have I forgotten how to gybe but I have also forgotten how to tune my gear to go fast.

At the end of the session I decided to raise the boom to unstick the board and what a difference!

All in all a challenging and scary session but the first time I have managed over 30 knots at Melville, so I finally have that monkey off my back.

Great 'after work' session with Craig, Stropp, Yoyo, Tomski and Hardie. Wiiiindy. Got down about 4 and Craig had already been out for a few hours. Saw Stropp had rigged the 6.0 and Dave the 5.7, so knew it was windy. Out came the 5.7/SP47 combo. Thought I'd go for an hour, but turns out with the low tide and the weed that the run was just too short. Lit across the middle and going in to Point Grey, but just too many gybes for it to be a quick one. Will be good to give this spot the beans on a better tide and really get over the end of Pt Grey for a longer leg.

2 hours of sailing and a few yeeeehars later, time to call it day. Nice to catch up with all the guys afterwards, and to see Elmo, who had driven up from Novara.
Time to hydrate and get something to eat. Another awesome session! Cool

Launched from foilville to get the better wind compared to melville. Went for an hour which was exciting in the rolling chop. Was holding on for dear life at times so surprised with the PB. I guess that means the new board is working. 

Went for a quick speed sesh at pt walter to test the board on flat water. Low tide made it impossible to get near the spit. Will have to come back when the tide is higher. 

Good to see many of the team out enjoying the 30 knots winds.

Coodanup, KA Koncept 6.2, Windtech 57 with Fangy Fin 24, then Mistral 47 with Lockwood 16cm Delta First real outing into Fangy's weed garden, amazing experience sailing straight through thick weed in good breeze. Still working out where to go to get the best speeds, but can see it will be awesome with a bit more water. Thanks to Fangy for lending me a suitable fin for the Windtech, and thanks to Decrepit for helping me set up my GT31 after my GW60 died, both very much appreciated

Was on my lonesome for a while but glad to see some friendly faces arrive.

Decided on the Delta 20 fin as a safer option on my own. Quite shallow in places which the delta is good for.

Tried my guts out to get the Silver Bullet 57 rocking along, switched over to a Vector 23 weed speed which was quicker, though a tad small for this board

any bigger i would have likely had a few stacks.

2 days in a row over 100ks, im spent!

What a great day on the little bit of water left in the river. Good day to find out where the shallow areas are. The tide eventually came in enough to run over the sandbar at Melville not long before sunset when the water looks like liquid silk with some nice gusts coming accross the sandbar. The odd weed-berg is growing at the back of teh sandbar. Had a decent run behind the ferry to get my best river NM but could have done with a bit more wind at the time. 

Good to see a lot of Pinnas out enjoying the sun and wind.

Great work, Windtech! Must have been you with the KA sail I saw up at Point Walter.

I feel very humbled that you managed a 30 nm when I struggled to get a 30 knot 2 sec. A 30 knot nm on the river today is a good effort indeed.

That is an excellent hour, Jake! That has boosted our hour average nicely. I hope Lunny was backing you up on the hour as well.

Super speed and alovely alpha too!

Kenny, congratulations on a PB hour. Almost 20 knots on a very gusty and choppy river. Well done!

Thanks, Anita. Just uploaded to KA72, but looks like I wasn't logged in and it's reading as "anonymous". Any idea how I can assign this track to me? I tried re-uploading once logged in and it seems to result in the same anon file. Stupid KA72.

Jake, I suggest you email dylan at dylan@KA72.com to get it sorted.

Sorry for discouraging you from Coodanup today - with the strong wind blowing the water in, it was the place to be, but we had no way of knowing that.

A big team turnout and a big effort by all, with a swag of PBs scored. We improved our scores in all categories, but unfortunately we only gained 3 points!

Apologies for not directing you to Coodanup today, clearly it was the place for speed.

Fangy, the Mistral's not a keeper, its just collateral until I can get your fin out of my windtech. Have to say that shiny alloy fin looks great sticking out of the boardbag on the roof of the car though.

Maybe you should just buy the fin, Pacey? they are very nice for getting over the Melville sandbar on a spring tide... It would have scraped today though.

It is an awesome fin Anita, solid as a rock today, good through the weed and great upwind. Not so impressed that it may be permanent jewellry embedded in the tail of my Wintech though.

I like mine, and it has had a lot of use lately.

what have you tried to get it out?

Pacey


WA

1974 days ago

At the moment just a phillips head screwdriver, a lot of brute force by both me and Fangy, and a reasonable amout of grunting and swearing. Problem is that it is the screw that doesn't want to come out of the fin. Fangy advised me to use extra long screws to make sure the thread in the fin didn't strip (obviously he didn't trust me not to hit the bottom hard), and the screw seems to have welded itself to the fin, its not keen on coming out at all. 

I'll try again tomorrow when the arm muscles are a bit fresher, but if that doesnt work I'll drill the head off the screw from the top. Fin should come out fine then.

Way to go Pinnas. Big turn out and congratulations to all PBíers. Sounds like Huey came out to play. Good to hear youíre ok Greg. I hear the Swan River trust is trying to identify who assaulted the sandbar at Peli yesterday😀. Unfortunately Iím still stuck in Bali but good to see my sacrifice to the wind gods paid off for everyone else. Oh well, Iíll have to drown my sorrows with another Bintang.

Well done Neil, Kenny and Pacey for your PB's. 

Impressive speed for the river Greg, shame that sandbar was holding you back. Another mighty hour Jake. Well don Anita and Ricey for getting amongst it on a day like today and still pushing for speed. Well earn't hour and river naughty Neil in such gusty, choppy conditions and nice distance jelly bean Wink 

Pacey, I'm sure Ross's advice on the extra long screws was just a sales tactic.
