Lake George, SA, 

That's why I drive a million miles. Perfect sou east breeze, 7m, 93 casl, 21 fin then 5.9, casl82,. 19 fin. Best speed at the top of the lake, then met Andy and followed him to the spit for nautical miles, thenback up for a few runs and home just before the wind went dodgy.

Lake George, SA, AU

First day at Beachport. Set up van after a nice lunch at the Cafe, then down to the spit for a late sail. 

Fanitic Ray 102 , KA race 6.3 , Techtonics 19. 15-20ish S/E. Great to be back and sailing at Lake George with all the crew .

Lake George, SA, AU.

Mistral Explosion, TR7 5.5m

Went out and back for one run and came in to change my undies.  Had a break and calmed down and went out for an hour.  After the first run in the wind and chop which was terrifying, ended up getting used to it and having a fun session.  (always in the back of my mind is that everyone else would want it windier - but it was about the max for my skills).

15-20 then 18-22kts The Spit Lake George, SA, AU sailed 4- 7.20pm

5.5m Mach2 - 80iso- 18 atomic delta

 then 6.2m M2 OD

Well it wasn't the glass I was expecting but what a day!

There were a few good flatspots and 10-15cms chop and rollers eslewhere.

Rigged too small at first. I was only powered up occasionally . I could have done with less over in the chop over on the western side going for gybes..Think I got the alpha with the 5.5m but over on the E side...Not a bad gybe, not my best but within the radius and  fully maxed in and out..Tongue out Might be room for a high 22 or even 23kts alpha.. I'll keep trying..

 Missed an Alpha PB by .04kt  Laughing

Got one decent puff in the flats for 32.6kts..After an hr or so I decided to rig bigger.

As I was rigging it seemed to be dying down and the lake flattening out but by the time I got back out it had kicked in to a consistent 18-23kts and I had a ball!

I never really got into the sweetspot with my upwind stance. I'd just get setup then a chop would bounce me out again..Not used to the fin yet..

Daffy  was following people around with the Go pro. He came up close behind me and yelled what I thought was 'slowdown"so I did..UndecidedLaughing

Apparently I was supposed to keep going..Undecided

 I did this epic run later It could have been the nm.

I started out maxed out in the bigger "chop'' then through the flats and out into the chop at the other side where I got the 2sec.

I was yodelling the whole way and he was just behinnd me but the Go pro battery had died.. Bugger..

I couldn't snag the strongest stuff in the flats but would get it in the chop after. I've never been able to get those sort of speed in 10-15cm chop before but I got a run up in the flat and hit the chop in the strong stuff.

I was 100% confident with that fin. It's a little beauty!

 The first time I've noticed the yucky the lake is this year.. It smells of guano and tastes almost as bad as 2015..Frown I wonder if all the rain has affected things? It was  pristine last year.

I was surprised at the distance.. I was just having fun. I could have stayed out later but I was the only one left out and wanted to drive out in convoy..

More please.

Daffy , Wendells, Jill (?) Andy, Ian , Bruce , Andrew and others.
