Arrived just before low tide and rigged the smaller sail today so I would'nt be so overpowered on the beat as I was last outing with Tricky.
The weed fin is working a treat in the stronger wind, and the flatter water out by the second oyster lease was perfect for improving my times.
Probably did my best carve jybe ever today but didn't improve the Alpha score because of the big bearaways and not being able to get back within the 50 meter zone. The sputniks not far away from 35knots and when it reaches it I will retire it and get something newer,perhaps a Isonic 101 or JP Slalom 101,( which is better?). Would have liked to stay for a bit longer to get out onto the main spit in close as the tide rose but saw lightning out to sea and decided to call it a day. Another good day.

Very disappointing day at boggy expecting 25-30 knots only got a very gusty 15-20 SE Hot sails Maui Speed Demon 8m, Hifly Madd 165, 2 x 36 freeride.
Teaches me a lesson for abandoning the shop in the expectation of wind it was barely 10knots when i arrived at boggy
Congrats to all the PB….

Had my fastest speeds ever and I was the slowest sailor for the day. the standard and expectations has stepped up so much here now,
really too much for my setup today was in survival mode had a 40 first run just going out and had to stop each end and adjust outhaul 2 notches to get upwind, need to work on technique and get off the 24 lines and get out to about 28's. and I will definetly be getting an adjustable outhaul. I didn't even do a gybe for the session.
was a bit of a pain getting in and out. some rain soon will help heaps.
Well done to the rest of the demon crew and to Hamma Rick Choc and Carl on the PB's.
Hamma was smoking it, his jp45 and pryde evo4's where absolutely rock steady and he was on a 5.8 when I was wishing I had a 4.4 or smaller. the vector weed fins he was running where bullshit good i'm sure Jesper will see a lot of orders for them.
Ricky has stepped up big time, wish I had a bro to pass down gear all setup and ready to go.
Choc had some sick speeds when I got there but had to go, I think he was on starting nights like me
Carl is like an energizer bunny that just gets buzzing and is so into his sailing right now, sure he would have been yapping all the way home and he was travelling by himself, well done 45 next ?
The Vic blow ins where cranking though big tony was like a weed plow sometimes, Jarques was flying well done on more pb.s, I think it was his third trip over.

Very Happy with my effort, was a bit out of control, spent the last half of the day watching the boys breaking their own records records.
Congratulations on all the PBS

Very Happy!!!!! In over 20 years of sailing i have never had so much fun in 3 months. Lake George just keeps delivering. Had to drive home just after lunch so decided better head out early. At the time was only 20 knots but rigged the 5.1m for the forecast and it paid off. Wind picked up to 30 - 35 knots and the 6.3 would of been a handful. The weed is growing to the top of the water and in alot of places has died. It is hard to start off but when you get going it is INSANELY FLAT.
Managed to keep heading up toward the flatter water and numbers just kept getting better. Had my goal of 43 in no time and every run increased - 43.3, 43.4, 43.5, 44.04 - was pretty happy at this point and next run 44.74 on the screen with 43.19 10 sec. By this time i was stuffed and had to start packing up for 4 hour drive home - WHAT A DAY! Very happy with PB's on 24cm choco weedy - wasn't sure if capable but has delivered beyond expectations. Good to catch up with Hamma Bros, Choco, Jimbob, Vic blowins and Dimond in the end - thanks for the beer and hope you get a good ride tomorrow. Well done on all the PB"S. Sorry you missed it Sam but hopefully next weekend the wind delivers so we can do it all again. If not this is definately the last ride at Lake George till October.
Lake George - 30 - 35 knots.
