The moral of this little interlude is: Be Like B2, not like B1.....B2 rigged big, B1 didnt . B2 sailed like a champion, B1 didnt. Dont be like B1.B1 grovelled and drifted, B2 was on the plane all afternoon. Everybody send the hate to B2 .
Past that, it was a sensational afternoon at the mud hole. Dont understand why the alpha didnt register, they were the only shining light in the whole afternoon - best dive into the GPS and see what the settings are on??
Used: WTSB72, Tribal MK146, ODM2 7.8 - and there was the issue. Breeze was 10 with 15kt gusts. Hardest 2sec ive ever had to achieve.

Holloways Beach, QLD, AU Pleasent little outing on the water with B1, albeit in light marginal shifty wind conditions.
Rigged the KA 8.7 for the first time- geeze these sails must have been made for small hands... found it very challenging to connect the boom to the mast when rigging with the super tight luff pocket... apart from that, the sail seemed to handle the light conditions reasonably well.
Felt a little sorry for B1 sailing underpowered with the 7.8 - still didn't stop me from yodelling on the drive by's, all in good fun!
Just another day in Tropical Far North Qld Paradise!
Surely not too much longer until our sailing season kicks into gear!
Used the KA 8.7 along with the JAG 125 & Venom 48
