Albany, WA, AU CA58 CA44 td16 Koncept 5.0 Primo Albany day still a low tide but we had wind!! Lots of smiling faces including mine. No pbs but top five and and even got to take out the 44 for the first time since LG last year. All the usual suspects except for woody and Hardie. Albany magic.

Albany Fantastic day sailing and meet new an old faces. Great atmosphere to be had. Good times. Learnt a lot today. Top 5 sailing day in my books. 5.6 loft, 52w fmx with 14 tribal delta. Only done one NM. Maybe should have put a few more down. Time to work on fitness a tuning. Best part was how amped everyone was.

Albany, WA, AU. Terrific day at Lilacs with a big crowd rolling up - great to see Cool  Good wind, with 39s relatively easy to get, but 40s were a challenge. GPS screen said an alpha of 27.12, so thought I had a pb, but KA72 downgraded it. Fab day, it was even warm! Cool

KAR 5.7, 5.2, Manta 54W + Tribal 16

 

Think the technical term for the number of sailors out today is heaps. Even the crew from Perth Southsiders decided to live up to their name & head south.

 

Went faster on the 5.7 but got better Alphas on the 5.2.

 

Good fun

JP Speed 54, NP RSR E6 6.4m, Tribal delta 16cm.

Well that was a bit of a day, the sailing was fantastic, but the drive there and back had me wondering my sanity.

Start of the trip went to the servo just before 7 to fill up and check the tyre pressures, found my trailer tyres were all cracking up around the beads, wasn't going to drive to Albany with sketchy tyres so went into Mandurah looking for tyre shop, furk none of them start before 8, so I headed back south planning to get the tyres done in Collie, decided to to check one little tyre shop hidden in a tiny LIA in erskine found a shop open and after a sob story about wind and needing to get to Albany got them to sort the tyres out, $290 and 1/2 hour later we're back on the road, it's now 0800 and I'm back on the road.

Got to Collie thinking should I just flag it and go home, but decided to press on. Snagged some lunch in at Mt Barker, before the final 50km about 15km out of town see lots of blue and red lights flashing in the distance and a lot of road trains parked up, this can't be good, it wasn't.

Eventually got waved through (thankfully) and saw iit was a grain carrying road train had gone through (litteraly) a  large caravan resulting in caravan shredded and truck and first trailer on its side withe grain al over the place (one poor bugger with a broom trying to sweep up the spillage), anyhoo's we're moving again for a nice smooth drive the rest of the way to Lilacs where I pull up at 1320, not bad time for leaving home @ 0700.

The trip back couldn't be any worse could it? noooooooooooooooooooooooo????????????

Left Albany at 1604, with just under 1/4 of a tank of fuel, more than enough to get to Mt Barker to fill up.

That was until I got to the detour around the accident with they were still clearing up, so I toddle of east on this detour, I keep toddling, more toddling, how much more f'kn toddling? eventually we get to Chesterfield Pass Road, the feul gauge is showing a pixle width of fuel left, 5 min later the idiot lights flashing morse code at me saying "you dickhead you should've filled at Albany". Pull over type in Mt Barker into the GPS, oh joy +50km to go, of goes the aircon speed down to 80kmh the idiot light flashing light a police radar trap on friday night has now occasionaly got musical accompliment, the last pixel has gone, how far have I got to walk to get phone reception around here was the thoughts bouncing around between my two working brain cells?

Eventually I made it into Mt Barker and gave the wee beastie a full tank of blessed enviromently damaging hydrocarbons. Looking up the specs for the vehicle the gauge has a bit iof hidden lee way but how was I to know that and running a diesel dry is not ideal.

So it's now 1730 and I'm just leaving Mt Barker, yay! that nice little delay has me driving into the sun after the Kojonup turn off, that's fun, f'k big fireball and +40 km of strobbing lights in your face (at least it wasn't the fuel light this time).

Give the boss a call from Collie @2022 to tell her where I am, a touch over an hour away (or so I thought) decided to go slow down the first Mornington Rd as Skippy likes to leap out along here and brown trouser you (if you are lucky it's only that. Down the second Mornington Rd decided 80km/h was fast enogh cause I know theres more of the bouncy blighters on this section after dark, sure enough there were two. Ontp the old section of road and I though "Beauty, I'm allmost there" no sooner had those words ricochetedbetween my previously mentioned brain cells when i see shit loads of blue and red disco lights all over the place.

You ripper a escort home? noooooooooo, some bright spark has embeded his comodore in one of the jarah trees on the side of the road, as the road is just wide enough for two cars with trees lining either side I can't even Uturn without taking the trailer off so I sit's and I wait's possibly getting eye damage from the REALLY effecting LED police light's.

Eventually they clear away the carnage, had a chat with the Policeman, who said he was amazed the driver survived, so was I when I saw the car, he had bullseyed the tree front and center with his commodore, sheared the +12"Ø tree of and collecting the one behind it, the front end of the car was a a forearm length away from the windshield.

Once back on the road I toddled the remaining lanes and drove warily on the main roads thankfuly of my light bar illuminating the road.

Eventually I got home @ 2220

What a day.

Oh better post something about the sail, but after breakfast as Im feeling a bit peckish.

 

Ok scoffed down the bowl of porridge.

The sailing was great, albeit wit a very low tide (there was a lot of shoreline all afternoon) went the speed board and my smallest fin.

First run 38, ooooo that's promising. Tried a N-S run 35. next run S-N 39 better, but It's Albany so I just had to give the Naughty a go.

With the low lide there no run in to the Nm run and little room to overrun the Nm so it's not ideal, still it was quite nice bit of a hole in the middle which slowed things up, but still satisfying.

So I went back up to do it again.

Great take of, bang up to speed peak of 39 getting into the run belting along in the 38's quite nicely when the fin let go, not really an issue as it recovers quite well, that is if you don't gumby it and pull your back foot out of the strap, resulting in a high speed enima and and Elmo sized dent in the water. Bugger!

Head back up the top (I was half way there anyway) fix up my camelbak which had the waist harness straps come off.

Hit the run again but once again hit a even bigger hole this time which resulted in a 33 for the run.

Decided after that just to go for glory runs, couldn't get the N-S runs sorted all the best were S-N.

Great day on the water, whole lott of fun, lots of happy people around, quite a few muttering about 40 being a poofteenth away and charging off on another run to try and crack it.

Good times

Stretch, GPSSpeadReader gives you 27.009. But it's +/- .027, if you take the extreme +ve that's almost a PB

Boz that little bird is a lieing bastard,

17cm storm surge that festering cess pit may be ineteresting for some but not this little red muppet.

If I can get into Lipton, Pt Grey will be the go else it will be Lumpy goodness at Novara for me.

If the forecast holds Pt Grey will be rocking, but the sail across will be interesting.

Nice sailing with all you guys and big congrats to Tobychef, Rondog and Doddi for the big PB's.  Sounds like Elmo had the most epic day though.  Thanks Doddi for the master class in the am (I am slow learner though) and Rondog and Antonette for the BBQ...was a bit zombified after one beer.   Happy to report GoPro's survived close encounter of the Stretchy kind.   By happy coincidence Stretch was coming right at the camera and once hit the camera spun 180 deg to get one frame of him retreating and remains of Flag. You could have done it on the other side of flag Stretch as too far away from underwater cam.   Can't post pics but will send to Minion Boz who seems to have knack of posting pics.
