Melville Beach, WA, AU Short session with Fingers and many others. Finback had just stopped to train up the next generation.  Must have been windy as Slowy showed up as well.   I was well overpowered initially then just over powered.   Nice workout. iSonic 97, KAR 7, TWS 31

Denham, WA. First day up here and 2nd sail since last season so pretty rusty. Seabreeze here today howled overnight through to mid-morning and then settled around lunch time (when first hit the water) and then repeated the cycle building up towards dusk-when I went out a second time and recorded the better runs.  The foreshore is a bit like like Safety Bay but I need to watch out for buoys, or more specifically, the anchors attached to the buoys by very long lines in the shin-deep water. Bloody hurt! Nice and shallow if stay out of the weedbank so no water starts required. Patrik Slalom 85L/SV Turbo 5.5/Tribal Symspeed 25

Melville Beach, WA, AU

1st went out on the JP 115ltr, 24cm 8.6m Servern Mach 4 it was nice.

Then borrowed Slowboat's new Tribal 135ltr, paired with a 38cm Tribal carbon with my 8.6m. Went for a good long run across the wind along Lucky Bay. Didn't check my speed until now. Wow Slowboat it's bloody quick across the wind, thanks Chris.

Hillaries Wall, Pinnaroo Point, WA, AU - Second day with new foils. 4.2 again but got to try the smaller (920cm2) one as well. Was a bit overpowered most of the time but the smaller wing was great.

Did you sail straight out from the Denham settlement Paul? There's apparently a good spot near to Shell Beach.

Wow Finback 8.6 in that wind...thats mental.  Even Slowy used 7m, congrats on more PB's and crazy speed for Melville.

That's an awesome nm for Melville, Darryl. If you could do that at Melville what could you do on flat water at Albany or Coodanup?

We may still be able to put down some very competitive speeds despite the exodus.

Nauli, yes, first day so just settling into the vibe here but will get to the speed run down at Shell Beach some time. Unfortunately the forecast doesn't look good this week so might be next week till get there.

FInback, that's cranking across the river there on some big gear!
