Pinnaroo Point, 5m 76wing. Early foil, 6 out of 7 days starting to take its toll.

Melville Beach, WA, AU. Quick fun session in the sun with a few other Pinnas and Slowy.  Looked like I missed the good wind so rigged big and big board.    Got out and wind picked up after a while, probably should have changed boards but was parked a long walk and couldn't be bothered.  120 Tabou Rocket, 7.8 Severne Overdrive M2, FF24

SSW'er at Melville with David, Jim, Tim, Andrew & Ben. Sailed Attadale foreshore mostly with a bit of Pt Walter where it was even gustier and stronger. Almost thrown by a big gust on the way to Pt Walter.

My main mission was to improve my gybing on the smaller board today, so I didn't do any speed runs until I was too tired to gybe anymore (which is not the ideal time to start speed runs).

I made a bit of progress but I am still a way off. I have forgotten how to throw the rig forward after the flip. I used to be able to do it but I can't anymore. 

I tried one speed run and got a 31.5 peak, so I thought I would try a few more. Next run too high up to get into the smooth. Third run well positioned to take advantage fo the smooth but there was a big lull right where the smooth was. Gave up after that as the wind had picked up and it was getting too hard to keep sailing upwind.

So, disappointed with my results - I feel I am having to learn to gybe and sail fast all over again, BUT it was a lovely sunny day with warm breeze and warm water and great company, and I definitely got a good workout.

Another great day in the shallows at Melville, once finding a place to park. A lot of south in the wind, usually I would try Wally world but Slowy said there wasn't much wind there so I tried stringing some gusts together at Melville and was tempted to get in close to Attadale foreshore but wind was a bit flukey in the shallow areas. Good to see Tim, Scott, Andrew and Jim for company.

Plan was to go winging today but huey looked too good so back on the slapper for another session. Stayed off the Melville sandbars until late in the day as the tide slowly came in. Good to see Scott, Ben , Andrew and Jim, along with a host of the usual local suspects. Sun + seabreeze = fun.

Nice long session down at Liptons today, plenty of crew about so was good to see. Took the new WindTech 12'6" custom out for a spin on the flats to see how it performed. Very happy apart from Ant giving me a hard time. He reckons the wake from the board caught him out a few times - he said it was like a ferry and I should get a horn fitted! Good fun out the back of Pt Grey doing long runs across towards Boombas. Lot's of mobsters down there today so Pinnas were a bit outnumbered.

Peli on the foil.

Pretty windy, I was going to rig a 5.8, but the long extension I had with me fouled the mast when it was only set for 6cm, so I had to make do with the 6.6 TR7.  First hit-out with my new 550 front wing, which took some getting used to, but it certainly made the 25K+ gusts more manageable.

Too overcooked to really go the full send with the new wing, I was in survival mode for the first hour, but I can definitely see the potential Smile

Lovely conditions overall, and pretty light on the boat traffic, which made it even better Cool

Daniel, that board was huge for the conditions. You did well sailing it for so long. Sorry I didn't get to chat with you - you were out too long!

Cannonball, another good solid session from you, and I see the alpha is in the 23's. Nice. 

Good work on the hour Scott and Ben, Ant probably put in a good hour too.

Thanks David. 30+ is much easier at Liptons. Maybe becasue I don't use speed gear at Melville because of the gustiness

Almost a third of the team on the water at the same time which must be a worldwide record! Well done everyone especially Ant, Scott and Anita. Sorry I can't participate on windy days.  

AMENDMENT.....Pinnas had 10 out of 45 on the water on this day.  Meanwhile, the next day, the Mandurah Mob (a team of mainly "experienced' older fellows) had 10 out of 37 on the water, which is an even more amazing effort, and they went very fast!
