Another fun Lilacs session, but nowhere near epic. Started off wth the 5.7 koncept/speed?  and the 48cm board with the 18cm starbord assy @ 50deg. This worked very well, but not enough wind for it. So I tried the 6.2 Koncept, The fin didn't like that as much, didn't spin out but there was tons of yaw. Tried more downhaul, but that just killed the sail, so I let it out again and went with 53cm board and 20cm@55 deltoid. This was the right combo for the conditions, so used this until lunch time, then it looked like the tide was about to go over the bank, so didn't bother withan arvosession

Albany, WA, AU CA66 switchblade 6.8 fangy22 gear selection based on ease rather than speed. I tried for an hour and alpha but got neither. All my good alphas were too big and the easy rotation of the loft sail caught me out a number of times and ended up in the drink and destroying my hour. Not so long ago I could only dream of todayís numbers so Iím still happy with my session and enjoying Albanyís goodness and the company of gentlemen. I wish the old body would stand up to the demands though.....

Lilacs Mistral91 SL (57W) TR16 7.0 Tribal weedspeed 28ish

Today was about trying out a new rashy, it is great Laughing

Good to sail with Cam, Mie, Alby, shane, Cliff, Mark Reg.... not sure if you sailed today, and Gazman

Wind up and down, at one point nerly changed to a smaller board, and a bigger board at another time. Sticking with the Mistral was the right move. Tried one NM, it was awful!

Oh and I got a top 5 diatance. I thought I had put that division behind me. Today it just felt right. Had to stop as had things to do, else could have kept going.....

I left Elmo at it, he looks like having some good numbers too.

Peel Inlet, WA, AU

 On a one day pass from Saint Hughies Home for the Teminally Optimistic . Joined by fellow inmate Joe.

At least had a few planing runs. The the wind quit. So did Joe . So did I.

Then the wind returned. Rocky Hammond had launched by this time and was going well .

I blame Joe. No telling has well I would have sailed if I had not come in.

Fangyland with Iain, Ricey, Pas and couple of others.  BoM was going for a big breeze, but all the others were far more circumspect, so I was thinking the BIG kit, but then Iain  went out on a 6.5 and seemed OK. Change of plan, Strategy Lazy Man, left the Barge with FF28 in situ but rigged the Avalon 7.0, which hopefully would cover most wind eventualities. Which it did and I had a good old cruise around the paddocks. I enjoyed myself tremendously but then I got greedy and tried to change down to the Cruise Missile. The wind immediately sodded off…sigh

Then Kato messaged me that he has just done almost 38 knots on the his FF28 at LG. Now I am feeling a bit inadequate.

Big thanks to Iain for moving my trailer down to the foreshore.

Plan today was to try for some distance, so rigged a board which would get going easier and a sail that would be middle of the road rather than my usual brute force and ignorance Tim the toolman approach. Set up the hanress lines to take as much weight of hands as possible and worked on sailing overhand with thumbs over the bom as well.

Session started out with a very low tide so the runs were quite short, but got to a nice length as the day went by.

Felt like everybody was passing me today (they were) first stint went for +90mins before I realised that I'd blown out a batten tensioner, so back to shore for an Elmo Dodgy bros repair, sorted, nothing a junior hacksaw and some cable ties can't fix, now I just have to fix my 5.0 wave sail which sacrificed a component.

Saled another 90mins and came in at 1300 for lunch.

Went back out at 1400 only to find the wind had dropped considerably, it was fun and friviolity trying to keep the gear moving and planing for the next hour and a half sometimes sucessfully some times not and at this point I was ready to throw it in but the wind came back and was able to rest in the harness with and nicely loaded sail.

Sailed as long as I could but had to get of the water, derig, shower and (unsuccessfully) make myself pretty for a awesome curry dinner with the rest of the degenerates.

Realy happy as I only dropped 4 gybes all day, I did stall quite a few though, but a dry gybe is a good gybe.

Had two pretty serious off's, first when I was just starting to send it on the weed back, hit something sizeable swimming which lead to an instant stop and slam.

The second was where I gumbied one of my gybes and rounded up on myself, fell backwards into the water only to watch the mast coming chopping down, just managed to get my chin to my chest enough so the mast collected the helmet rather than my face, as it was my two braincells were ricocheting around for about 10ins

 Great day out, respect to Steve who was in machine mode today showing how it's done.

That was mostly great fun as always with distance made better by having others out on the water to chase.

And the curry was excellent. Next few days here have some promise, but no more accomodation avaiable anywhere I hear.

Reg I had to check my geography but of course you are correct. Not sure how many will see the reference Laughing.
