Lake George - 20 to 30 again - probably not quite as strong as yesterday.
Day 3 - another superb day. Had to leave early so got there at 8.30 to a firing lake. Had mind set on 5m but with a gusty sw i decided on the new loft blade 5.6m. Rigged awesome out the bag and decided on Fanatic 51 speed with the trusty 23 vector delta - these fins rock.
On the water 1st which is unusual for me lol and off i went. Left Packin point and headed high upwind and started powering off the wind and thought i might aswell do an early mile - saw 39.3 at the start on the screen and kept cranking off toward the end of the spit in some choppy water but kept the hammer down to pull up and see over 40 on the dial and 35.3 mile on the garmin - yeehar - great start.
Stash and daishy joined in the fun and we cruised around for a while all with 40's on the dial - well done boys.
3rd run in had a 41.38 so pretty happy with that and a 39 odd 10 second but time was getting on and wind swung so had to head back and leave Stash and Daishy with some really nice wind .
Another great trip and happy to get the mile in - these Loft blades are great and can't wait to dial them in....
3 different sails and 3 boards used in 3 days and windy everyday life is good .
Fanatic falcon 51, 2020 5.6m loft blade / vector 23 weed speed.
PS next weekend is forecast 30 to 35 again....

Lake George, SA, AU 25/30 knots SW COLD today, WINTER sailing is cruel but rewarding
big walk out from packins, 47 mistral speed /5,7 serverne R8 23 weed speed tribal.
serious conditions today with some flat water but hard to get the gust. wind was strong at start but the time we got sorted with set up the wind dropped and 5.7 was not enough to push into the 43/44 what we were hoping. 42,7 max's but on flat section they were straight forward. if you got the line wrong and finished hitting 1 foot chop then it was crisis management.!!
tried and tried to line up for a gust but 5.7 was not enough.
Highlight was seeing Carl take off from packins go high to 5 mile then just let in go over the chop !! suicdial I thought his new sail was doomed. Great courage Carl. that was not for me. think he got a 40 and 35mile crazy bastard.
finished with a few mile efforts which were fun 34 mile with only a 37.5 peak showed the consistently of wind at times. still ned to take the brain out a little for these mile runs but was gewtting desperate as speed runs were getting frustrating. poor me.
great work guys, thanks for coming over, this time we had 5 guys and 5 cars , 5 trailers and a RV.
