Peli Pt with plenty of Pinna's. After the first run I thought it wouldn't be a good day for speed sailing (chronic wind and waves), but after watching and learning from Mark and Marcel, I thought I'd give it a go and do some runs off the wind. So glad I did!
Had the board trimming nicely today.

Peli point, 5.0 Ezzy, 88 Strapper, BenderSpecial 28? fin
Wind looked like it was howling so I rigged my 5.0 -- this was the wrong choice, I should have rigged the Blade 6.8 as the wind dropped off.
At one point I was in a total lull, I fell off and when I was going to waterstart out in the middle of the river something brushed my leg... the following waterstart was the quickest I've ever done!
Saw a number of Pinnas out there, hopefully we can do something with our mile score.
Not my best session ever but good to have a sneaky after work sail.

Good to see a top turn out from the Pinnas at Peli. More PB's from the boys. Marcel you were flying. Shame we couldn't get you on a mile. Happy with my Nmile. A swan river PB for me.
Disappointed with the hour as I just couldn't control the board in the chop through the corners. Really struggled with spin out and had a couple of crash bang rail trips as a result.
Would have liked to try Pt Walter today but we needed that Nmile. Well done guys.

Had a good session. LOVED THE CONDITIONS!!!! bit sick of weak light winds so today was awesome!! Good to see lots of pinnas. Did a 31 on my first run so knew the session had some potential.... then broke my boom clamp on my second run... decided to play it safe so couldn't help the team with the NM runs.
Just did runs over the sand bar. GREAT FUN!!!!

Lucky Bay, real easy type sail for an hour and a half Those gybes, so close sooooo close. Gotta crack it shortly Nebs your tips work very well

Decided to spend the afternoon on the river - got there 12:00 sailed till 6:30 - Sailing travel time 3hrs 12 , needed a couple of long rests in there. Great fun, sailed up to Lucky bay, where I got the 2 sec peak. The 1 hour was me going upwind. After a rest I started to come back and realised the yatch racing had started, lot of big boats to avoid. Then met Mark and another rest was needed. Im surprised that the Nm was after that.
I know I will be sore tomorrow - in fact I am tonight
