Belmont (slipways), NSW

GTR+ foil SS7.0

A snappy hour in my window between lunch and school pickup. Started around 10kts NE and slowly built to 15. Couldnt get comfortable today. Just Andy out and Lyds getting ready as I was coming in.



Lyds (10267km):

Belmont Bay (Slipways), NSW, AU Fun foil with Andy with him trying for a speed PB, then a cruise down to his place to change to his fast wing Cool Evo foil and the 5.8 (fun sail)

Yes..yes...give us the summer and the summer winds..

Used the SB 95+fuselage with the 800 wing and my 7m .

I find this shorter fuselage a lot less friendly than the longer ones but  it seemes like it did go  bit faster..

Coal Point, NSW, AU, NE 15-20+

Stingray, 800.95.255 then 550.95.255 then 800.95.255 all with 5.5m

Starting to feel a little more comfy on the race wings. Great sail mostly with Lyds, but quite a few others out.

PBs in 2Sec, 5*10, Alpha and NM. So not a bad session!

10-18kts ENE - NE Peely Budgewoi Lake, NSW, AU- mainly 15kts level 0.19m

7m OD - WT57 - 16.5cm FF one run

 then 7m OD - WT64 - 24cm FF

I rigged for the forecast expecting it to pick up but it didn't..Undecided I should have had the 7.5m up.

A rather frustrating session.

Took the 90ltre out with the cutdown 22FF ( 16.5deep) as I thought it would open up more sailing area. The first time I've tried that fin with the 90 and 7m and it was too small to get upwind. If the wind had been a bit stronger it may have worked.. A few runs then I gave up and came in for a bigger fin. I ended up putting the bigger board on. I forgot to turn the watch on for this section so I've posted the full distance from the GT31.

I usually get upwind well but I struggled today. I was going upwind well in the stronger stuff but there wasn't enough of it and with the short runs and wide gybes I was working hard to keep upwind..I wasn't powered up enough to do many bearaways the 2 sec was on the run in..

At least the gybes are starting to come together. I got some good ones. Now I've just got to work out where to gybe to have wind for the exit. A lot of the time I'd flip and be hanging off ready to power away but it would be 10kts..Yell

Plenty out going well. Glynn was killing it as usual.

 Wayne , Pugs , Mike , Glynn, Pete , Paul? Matt ( later) and others..
