North Haven, SA, AU. 28-35Kt. NW. Finally, finally. Cracked 30 at my local speed strip.
109SS + 30 MUF slalomweed + 6m NCX. 1 run !. I knew that would happen.
Go back in, rerig: 85 FSW + BP 20 freeweed + Hucker 4.2.
Conditions were MENTAL. You know how I joke about "Boggy: Home of the airborne gybe" ?. Well, it was like that. Not very flat at all. I know the upper wind limit of this new Hucker. It's definitely a 4.7 in a 4.2 size. 18-32kt comfortable wind range. Impressive.

Lake George - 18 to 30 gust nw.
Fun during the week sesh with 5 other keen bogans . Forecast was epic but as usual not quite right but still a great day. Overnight camp at Cockies with a fun catch up with the boys. Drive in was interesting with a creek crossing and a few breskis.
A little rain overnight gave Tricky a sprinkle to wake him up. Bacon and eggs for brekky - cheers Casey and slow to rig as the wind was slowly building. Decided on 5.7 ka speed so could change board - either 87 or falcon speed 51.
Took out the Patrik 87 / 2021 ka speed and Tribal delta 20 and glugged for a bit with a couple of semi planing runs.
A little frustrated i was cursing lol and soon the boys went in and i managed to get hold of a rain squal to see mid 37 on the dial.
The wind was in and followed up with a 38 and the other boys joined in.
I saw the boys cruising up near the flat water and thought they might be doing a one hour - so decided to go for one.
Managed to get the Garmin up to a 24.2 hour and it dropped so i decided to call it with 100 k's on the dial. Managed a 39.3 on the screen so decided to head in for speed board and used the XT-50 16 with Falcon speed 51 and 5.7 speed.
Big mistake the wind became more fickle and the Xt-50 16 doesn't suit my riding style or gear - was crazy scary in the chop - did manage a slightly higher 2 second but was suicide.
Went back to change fins and tried to borrow Tricky's delta sym 16 but wouldn't fit and decided to watch the 5.7 do some rolls downwind - no damage at all just up ended in the soft mud - :-0 - lucky.
Fitted the Delta 20 and headed out - another mistake with the wind even worse and the Tribal 20 was too big.
We all ended up in the weed monster at the top near spit and decided to head back to shore.
Most got going and got most of the way back to Cockies but i ended up stuck in the mud for what seemed like ages as it started to get dark. Managed to get going and with a bit of sliding and walking we all made it back.
Interesting drive out with the water all over the track in we had to follow the edge which was muddy wet and slippery - almost got bogged lol.
Cheers Casey and Tricky for the company and the drive down port and food and laughs.
Great sailing by all and Daishy you are smoking mate - we knew it was only the matter of time...well done.

Lake George, SA, AU N to NW then to WEST, mistral speed 95 / 7.0 / 22 tribal delta speed
lg DIDNT REALLY DELIVER TODAY AS EXPECTED. 5 crazies travelled in terrible weather and camp in crazy conditons.
wet and wild all day 5 knots to 35 knots, I found a great gust and annoyed after having my gps off for 5 km and doing a wicked nauty ,...I let loose on big gust.
big stack at 37 knots, luckly harness let go and double sommersault in air meant no gear broke, but body sore, knee now stuffed.
lucky really, jumping chop thinking I was indestructable !!! not so.
went in for small speed board mistral and 6.3 . could hit 40 more comfortably but not real gusts to go faster.
Lucky I got in before a 45 min lull, the other 4 were not so lucky. GREAT to be out there with 4 crazys plus BUShman came out for a welcome change.
nearly got stuck at cockies as the 1st lake filled with water, lucky we had 2 4Wd to go through the back paddocks, super boggy
great sailing guys.., great team effort for the points
thanks Carl for doing a hour effort!!
