Peel Inlet, WA, AU M95 Kar 5.5 fangy 21s Couldn’t find the gust today. An easy day with locals and a good crowd of visitors. Good fun.

RRD Xfire V2 102, Pepe weed 27cm, NP RSR E6 6.4m.

Liptons, just going back and forth across the channel enjoying the lumpy goodness.

Pretty happy with the hour, only gumbied two gybes all arvo and one weed ball after a semi gumbied stumble fumble gybe.

Tested another footstrap position today, it sucked so changed it back when back at the car.

Lota fun, good crew out chasing speed, good to see Bono back on the water after a long absence.

Fangyland wiith Pas and a bunch of kiters.  Top Ten Fangy arvo mucking about on the old race board. Surprised by the NM, pretty happy with it given it has a gybe in it. Post more later.

Vintage Windtech, Avalon 6.3, FF21S

 Today was a test session for the latest set of mods to Avalon 6.3. Bugs has increased the seam shaping negative numbers in the mid + upper parts of the sail to increase the high end twist. Happily, that seems to have worked really well. The bottom end might have decreased a smidge, I could not be sure on that end, but the upper end is significantly higher. Certainly there is less backhand pressure when pushing hard and the sail feels lighter as a result. I really liked its predecessor , but I can see that the improved high end would appeal to all those lacking momentum muscle or floating around with only double figure kegs on board. All in all, it’s still my favourite sail.

As for rest of the session today it was going to be the challenge of an alpha day on the WT. Although I am pretty happy getting the board to glide around the corner, I am totally lacking in the discipline required to complete the job and instead head off downwind hoping to connect with a bit of gust. Oh well, maybe next time I will persevere long enough, but chances are; I won’t. :-)

well that was fun!! Wind looked very promising so went with the 48cm board, 5.2speed with 19cm@47 weedy.

Had a go to see what sort of NM I could do across the channel, happy with the 28.7 that will improve my over 77 NM ranking,

Wasn't getting very good 2s speeds so decided to take advantage of hardy's gybe marker, flat water and reasonably consistent wind to try some alphas.

Very happy with a 25.444, haven't had a 25 for a while, this improves my over 75 alpha. (just checked, last 25 was March 2018, nice to know my gybes are coming back) not quite a top 5, probably a top 6, I'll check later. Yep, 5th best alpha was a 25.449, so only 0.005 difference. I'm going to think of this as equal top 5. Especially as the GW60 gives me a 25.457

Fantastic arvo out actually, warm, sunny, with lots of good company, if I try to remember everybody, I'm bound to forget someone, so I'll just say it was good to see Shano and Bono back on the water.

here's the crayons
