Lake George, SA, AU, South 15-23

Isonic 90 and 6.2 then CA44

Moderate day, cruised around doing nautical miles on the isonic 90. Got a nice one powered up most of the way.

Changed to speed board, but nowhere near enough.

Fantastic day. sterted early, CASL 109 7m, 21 tectonic. Then CASP44 with same sail just to see if it would work. Too lazy to change down.

Heaps here, Andy, Ricardo, Ian ( smashing his PB distance) & a million others.

 Patchy 5-14kts S then patchy 10-17kts then building to 15-25kts SSE S Lake George, SA, AU

 7.5m GT Turbo - RS4 ( 111ltres) 24FF

 then Rs4 - 7m M2 OD

 then 7m OD - Rs2 ( 90 ltre) 21.5cm FF ( cutdown 24cm)

 then 6.2m M2 OD - Rs2 - 21.5cm FF

It was supposed to be a distance day today but it ended up a dud. Awake at 4.30 am there by 7am . Just me a lone cow and some fishermen. 5-9kt S - 16 degrees and drizzle.

By 7.30 Tim and Chris from SA had arrived. 8am I rigged the big kit and went out. the first 3/4hr were very patchy managed to plane slowly and keep upwind. It kicked in a bit and I was ok . Kept on the big kit for 1.30hrs but I didn't want to wear myself out with it soI came in to wait for more wind and have a snack.

It seemed to have picked up so back out with the 7m on the big board. Buggerall wind this side but ok on the other. Felt good but I noticed everyone else was on smaller gear so came back and got the 90ltre with the 7m. Great in the gusts but very patchy.. got backwinded by one big gust and feel in and realised how cold I was. My aldi steamer just didn't cut it!

 Went in and changed to the winter wettie and had lunch. I wanted to go down the lake and explore but I was worried about the wind dropping out as one minute there was nothing much then ok. I was going to use the big board again but then it came in.

 Rigged the 6.2m and the Rs2  for comfort. My main aim this trip is to try and improve my gybing and alphas. I was getting 21- 22kt alpahs back in 2015 and although I know my gybes are way better now I struggle to get a 19kts one..

I was going into the gybes in winds I would usually pike at and going well but then had the worst stack Ive ever had..Frown

Flying out of the exit hooked in and getting organised and I let the rig get a bit too far forward and got catapulted. Got piledriven head first into the bottom and then my body continued over using my head as a pivot point. My chin was squashed into tmy chest and my spine got a hell of a stretch.Visions of spinal injuries.. Luckily not that bad but it put the wind up me and I think I've strained some muscles in my left ribcage.

 Very painful trying to go upwind afterwards..

 Got back on the horse and did some more making sure I was in the straps and in contro with the sail back l before I hooked in. did some good one and was Stoked to see 19.8 alpha on the watch for my pains..unfortunately it's disappeared..Undecided This was at the 75km mark. I kept sailing hoping it would stop me from seizing up.

 Headed up to the flatter area and tried some speed runs but couldn't get any decent speeds. I suppose that combo is more for comfort than speed.

Getting pretty strong in the gusts now ( 25kts odd) . Should have been on the 70ltre . Kept going to get 100kms. Still had plenty in the tank but I figured I better look after the injury and not push things too much.

Think I'll be pretty sore tomorrow!

 Great to see so many women out- Dezza- Barb- Salty Nic - Leanne

Exocet RS4 , Severne Overdrive R6 7m. , MUF Delta Slalom 20.

Wind started around 15 knots  around at 11am gradually built to 20-25 in the gusts, then easd again late in the day. Decided to stick with the same gear and just sail .

Had a lunch break and a few short rests . When I was last person sailing , decided that will do me.

Top stuff Ian, great PBs and amazing distance. Just think how much further you could have gone if you'd kept up the cross trainer.Laughing

Nice work on another PB Andrew.

That sounds like a nasty catapult Sue. You were lucky to come out of it so well. I once had to help rescue a kiter who suffered a broken neck from a similar event.

Sounds like there are lots of ladies there this year. I do feel I am missing out. No wind at all over here.
