Foreshore Rd, Botany, NSW, AU. Building WNW mostly 25-30kn once it set in. Started out at about 9:50am on the RS5 122L, 7.0m Severne and 44cm carbon fin. Surprisingly stable down the runway. After about 1.5h, changed board to Isonic 107L w 40cm G10 fin. Lots of fun sailing with Remi and trying to keep up (never did of course, not even close!!), first section of the runway was actually pretty smooth, but got pretty lumpy further down hence the many short runs, Coming back towards the beach not so great with the chop, felt like a boxing match getting constantly punched in the ribs and kidneys. Not sure I can still walk.

But yes, still waaaay better than being sat behind a computer at home LaughingLaughingCool

Gusty session at Primbee, in a Wisherly. 

RS1 80L really needed a bigger fin

iSo 90L with narrower tail felt better

Spweedie 19cm? was  a bit/lot small. Suited the iso better. Much less spinout and less severe. 

TRXI 6.3 broken mast and main panel

TRXI 5.5 going strong, but over/under/perfectly sized

good crowd on the water. Bloody cold though. lost feeling in my toes about 30km into the session.

 

So there I was on about the 3rd run.... happily planing upwind after a long run, when slide, the back stepped out over a chop... as it had every run before, but before I could bring it back, the leward rail caught a chop and over we went. Surprised. When I got up, I could see something wrong, half the sail didn't come with the boom, which had cracked at the clamp. and the Mast at the boom. and the sail panel. Money mouth

After a long walk back, I had no choice but to ride the 5.5 which was good in the gusts, but a tiny bit undersized for the bear-aways... couple of guys cracked the big 40 today!

Foreshore Rd, Botany, NSW, AU

Exocet RS4 - Loftsails 7.0 - 35 fin

Another top day with Jules and a few others than came and left while we were motoring through the Westerly.

Had some great side to side runs along the runway. Just needed a bit more Norht in it to get to 6th gear ;)

Pretty rough down the runway and especially the ride back!

Primbee, NSW, AU 15-30 W with some gusts around 40

JP69/ Koncept 5.2 speed/ MXR22-wsp 45deg. and a couple of runs with RS2 and Fangy Fin 21 speed

 

Challenging gusts, one lifted the board out and I landed spinning out, but somehow managed not to crash. Great to see team mate Berowne, great day on the water !
