I came, I saw, I rigged, I sailed 'round out of the harness in a very unflattering puckered poo stance, and I made it home intact.

Survival sailing with 50+ knots registering on Holfuy and a hand held anemometer.  Deep choppy water.

North Warp 5.2, Carbon Art 47 Speed, MUF Delta XT 20

 

Edit 

 

Couldn't help myself, went back for a second helping in the afternoon.  Much flatter water, modestly more sailable wind.  Same gear.

What a mixed up afternoon for me. Sailed out ALL the way to Windang, hit a sand bar and broke my boom clamp. Tried to do a repair on the water but that wasn't working. Did the 2+km walk back and after an hour and 20 minutes I was back on the water with a wobbly but hopefully good enough boom to mast connection. Had missed most of the strong wind but managed two great bear aways before I had to retighted my boom repair. Got back on the water again for half an hour but the wind had died off and my boom was loose again anyway.

Great to watch Tim, Craig and Matt making the most of it.

5.2 evo12, 46cm speed board, 18cm weedy.

Primbee, Lake Illawarra.

AB 54 78L, SV OD 5.2m, XT delta 18.

After work session, still had the 40-50 kt whirlwind gusts coming through but that did drop off to more managable conditions in the flat water. Low water level and lots of weed keeping it nice and flat, though quite shallow (and that shallowness was always in the back of your mind during any bearaways.)

Trying to work out how to post again..... anyway today was squeeze my ass as tight as possible and try to work out how to use the water ski and survive today's epic washing machine on super max cycle Yell.  Not the day to testing  my injured self,  but I did make it back in one piece, thank God..

Pop's, full respect in the condition like today, survival mode and to the everyone else as well. Great to see some familiar faces at the Local again Laughing. Next time LT in super cruise I think its a better and safer option at the moment.

Please keep my water ski dry please and make sure you tuck it in at night as well!
