Valentine, NSW, AU

JPHF 135 F4 SLalom Large Phantom X Mk2 7.0

NNW - 5 - 25kts- Schitzy westerly 8AM sail. Forget how glary it is at this time of day. Should of worn my welding helmet! Overpowered and just putting the hammer down in the lulls. Amazed by the NM as the best ive ever done in a westerly is about a 21. (think thats a PB) Just got lucky with a non lethal gust. Seabreezes cant come soon enough!

Foil session 

7.8/800 wing slalom fuse

was a bit hairy at first, pretty over powered and also up at Teralba

More settled on the warners bay run which was nice and fairly comfortable

Slow day here in QLD. Not enough wind for some real sailing so went for a cruise instead.

Beats being in lockdown I guess.

 10-22kts few puffs more NW Belmont Bay (Slipways), NSW, AU- Marks point 15-21kts av - range 15-31kts but it wasn't getting into Squids

Low tide 0.3m-  9.37am 

water level 0.087 - too shallow to go more than halfway in with an 18.5cm fin

5.5m Mach2- 80 iso- 18.5cm Atomic nuclear weed

Well that was disappointing..After a PB session last time I went in with expectations that were too high. It looked promising - flatter than last time , similar wind on the meter at Marks Point but the wind wasn't getting into the 'flats'. It was also 10cm shallower so the areas I was using last time were too shallow. Add 8 or 9 kites right in the middle of where I wanted to bear away and forget it..Yell

 Note to self- don't go to Squids on a weekend, especially if it's 25 degrees +..Undecided

I rigged down as I wanted to get some gybe practise. I'm starting to get a bit better but still rusty. Still I feel good that I went for it powered in the choppier sections..Hard to get a powered entry and exit though..

 On and off the plane and not that powered on a few bearaways I tried.

The best wind was over near Marks Point where I was gybing. I wasn't going in that close but it may be worth a look . If it's deep enough it could get some flatter water.

A better day to just mow the grass out in the deeper water. Next time it's a bit patchy  I might rig the WT and go out in the chop.

 I think rather than expecting Squids to be a Budgy substitute I should just look at it as a safe place to sail Westerlies. I'm getting sick of sailing a small area. I want to feel free out in the middle again..Tongue out

Just me with Mark and Maree out later as I took a break.

It must hvae been much better early as clearly it's not possible for someone to be this much fast than another foiler

Well done Jeff the numbers speak for themselves, you are flying.
