Green Island, QLD, AU What an ordinary place to sail!
My arse!!- Super fun had today in our own piece of awesome magnificent tropical paradise!!! It'd been that long since my last session off GI, I had to lubricate the zippers on all the travel gear to loosen them up! Seriously forgot how good this destination is!!
Great bunch of crew out on the water- PD Latte land lads Ed, Andrew, Mark & Rick, Beach bums B1 & Dr Cam and last, but not least, the Brinsmead bandit Capt'n Kel... + our 2 kiters who may one day succombe to the board & sail...
Pretty sure everyone had an absolute blast out there today! Was Mark & Rick's first outing to GI and I could definitely tell by the look on their faces, they were not disappointed!- even Rick still had a huge smile on his dial at the end of the day after an unfortunate incident early on contacting the fin resulting in a decent gash on the back of his leg- wishing you a speedy recovery Rick!
Used the Jag 125 for the first 2/3's of the sesh and then switched to the Exocet Turbo 106 for the final 1/3- found there was nothing in it in regards to top speed, maybe half a knot if that... Used both with Severne 7.8 OD M2 & Tribal Weedspeed 31.
Heading over for another crack tomorrow with Capt'n Kel & Dr Cam...

Great day out with the crew - 9 sailors all up - teamed together for a beautiful day out on Green Island - without the 300 Chinese tourists. The tides were perfect and the sun was out. I wasn't sure about the wind so I rigged my V8 Neil Pryde 7.2 - I had a couple of runs and decided I was overpowered. So invested in a sail change - to my very efficient North S Type 6.6m triple cam. Plenty of downhaul and removed the bottom cam for a bit less power. I had my Fox 140 litre and 44cm fin. For the first 10 minutes I didn't get in the footstraps = I was trying to work out the breeze. After that I settled in to a rather enjoyable two hour session. It was great to sail with so many people - everyone was screaming along enjoying things. I was happy with myself and the wind was pretty much spot on. The other bonus was that it was quite southerly - which meant I didn't have to work hard to get around the point - it was, in fact, very easy to just cruise up and down the drag strip. It was very much my kind of day.

8 sails on the water today and 2 kites. Post more later, but the day was amazing.
The Buggers around me have said it all. Plenty of wildlife on the flats, thats about all I can add.
Used: CASL108, 31WS, 7.0 M2OD

Green Island, QLD, AU..Took the Port Douglas crew for a quick blast at Gi today Haven't been there for ages and was keen to show 2 new kids our favourite play ground..Had a nice 18 to 20 kts of breeze blowing over drag strip with a nice little bit of chop on it..I said to the boys this is about as good as it gets...105 fox ran sweet with no cam 7m and 38cm fin Didn't put a lot of effort in to going fast was happy just going for a nice blast and playing in a bit of chop out in the big pool..My wing man Andrew sailed the best i have ever seen him sail i will be surprised if he doesn't get a least 1 Pb..The new kid Mark had a great blast on one of Cam's old go fast boards and said that was one of the best sails he had ever had..My other friend Rick had a major wipe out early in the session and got a bad cut on his leg so it was game over for him which was a real shame as he missed out on what could of been one of his best sessions, but he is keen to come back and make his mark onGi..The rest of the crew had a blast and should have some good numbers to be proud of.The only down side was we had to catch the 230 boat home as that is all that is running at the moment so know big kms for us..But it was still worth going for a blast..All good fun..Cheers Ed.
