Coodanup, WA, AU. Dawn patrol with many of the usual nutters.   Wind was brutal and freezing whilst rigging so went with the smallest gear I had.   Went with V1 asymetric morphing fin and hope today was to also test out V2.  As soon as launched wind died off but chugged up to the top of pond.  Wind booted a little but was way underpowered for the one the one run I did but managed to get back to the top before wind died again.  Stood there for an hour getting colder and colder waiting for something to happen.   Wind spun more easterly and eventually picked up.  Did one lap before deciding to use this wind to escape which looked like a good decision as dropped off but managed to chug out the passage.   Nearly 4 hrs sitting around freezing for a few minutes sail but good to get out.  Main objective was trying out the fin which both survived, despite some serious dredging whilst chugging and was rock solid but not a great day to do comparisons. iSonic 86, KAR 5.2, FF22 morphing V1

Melville

Got there at 9am to see it glassed off after a few hours of rubbish bins being toppled and contents spread over the burbs. Figured it would come back for a bit so rigged

6.2m 118 34 MK3. Wind looked like it was coming back around 9:40, so I plodded out, to the other side of the sand bar, and it stopped again...so waited in the water for about 30 minutes until a squall came through... nor very windy- not powered up on 6.2 but planing at least for a few minutes, then 10 minutes more plodding, then another squall came through... this one had a bullet in there where I was absolutely lit, but the high tide washing machine had kicked in along with the 30deg wind shifts making it far from flat... hit my fastest peak on that run with 39 on the dial past the outside end of the sand bar (thats where the wind was). more wating, back and forth plodding, and one more OK gust (not fully powered) for my fastest 10 sec. Called it quits at the next glassoff... not a lot of ks for all that time sitting around... Maybe I should have gone to the pond? hmmm

A very up n down session with a few die hards at the pond. Looked promising to start but missed the big gnarly squall. Ended up coming in to swap the Tribal 53 speed with Windtech 64 SB and managed to get a couple of runs. Maybe Albany will turn it on this weekend.

Walked for half and sailed for the other. Well sort of. Had a few runs. It looked so promising too. Great company regardless. Next time...

Glad I stayed home in the warmth! Wandered down to Melville at around midday to see a balst of wind for less than 10 min during a rain squall then nothing after which the wind went offshore.

Sounds like I didn't miss much. I drove to the pond after lunch hoping for the more consistant wind that follows the front. Wind was consistant but I didn't think 12-15 knots wasn't worth rigging up for. 

Well done on getting out and perservering through the glass-offs.

Richo, consider it a practice run. Fingers crossed for a big winter. The stars will align soon enough
