|Scott (5272km): |
Futura 93, Firewing 6.2 & Vector 38 SLW - Finally got the board sort of trimming right with Firewing, but maybe a bit more to go! The Firewing, what can I say, awesome sail! Has to be the most balanced sailed I've used, rock solid in every gust! And its a tad faster than my old sails! Looking forward to the speeds when I get the Futura unstuck, it was triming very flat today, but still good enough for some PBs!!!!!!!!! I came in for a rest and gave Col a go on the Firewing, thought he take it for a few runs, WTF!! he didn't come back till dark!! Oh well I was happy anyway and still a bit tired from yesterday. By the looks of it Col liked the sail too!!
|Borgy (16631km): |
6.4m Lightning, 34Choco and RRD FSW 102 (after 7m & 98 Xfire & 36 Volt)
Hit the water and felt like I was going to get blown off it.
Decided to just sail some k's on the wave board for a bit of fun and relaxation. Bit choppy to begin with, then settled down towards 5pm.
Good to see the youngest team member with mum and dad on the beach after!
|Annie (12406km): |

Nice to meet J.V. O'Neill & also check of Mum's welfare, nice family
|Nelson d Foiler (29509km): |
RRD Firestorm 101L with 7.0M T-bird & 36 EX Vector
Changed to the 34 EX soon after hitting the water as the gusts were trying to launch me skyward
Eventually had to change down to the 6.5M T-bird but in hindsight should have changed fin.
Changed down to a 29cm Select fin & the board became super comfortable in any water state or direction
Spent about 5 minutes up in Scotty's corner watching something in the water (less than knee deep) about 5 meteres away, thought it was a stingray wing popping up but realised it was a small fin, then it came right out of the water & it was about a 20cm fin so I'm guessing about a 1.5M shark, I lost sight of it so got out of there
Top day sailing fully powered up
|Windrider (12344km): |
OD5.4, Sonic85, WS26. Melville. After some discussion on the beach wrt sail size choice I went with the 5.4, which seemed to work OK on the day.
Well done on the PBs Scotty!
