Easterly, Sandy point, SX S, 5.4 Ram
Tried sailing inbetween swimming and spinning out...
|Old Salty (3704km): |
Travelled to Area 51. This place has potentional. Need to sail in differing wind directions and tides but much longer runs than Inverloch but not quite as flat but much flatter than the Bay
Started with the 144 ltr Mistral Explosion and 50cm fin and 7.5 tushy Did one long sail across to the other side of the bay exploring the water depth. Wind was blowing from the NE around 12 - 15 kts
Changed to the 105 ltr SX medium with MFC 36cm fin and 5.5 tushy when the wind swung ENE 20 - 25 kts. Should have come in and changed down fin size but was stuffed. Still working on riding the SX properly but worked out another couple of things with it. Least I am getting both feet in the straps 50 % of the time. Spin out is still a problem
|Drift (6100km): |
Tried out new secret spot- "AREA 45" with Doug, Richie, Ash and Lozza.
We had a NE building from 2 knots to 15 then shifting more ENE
It's got potential...it'll hold any wind except West....a bit lumpy when its in the north but great fun with long runs.
Good rig area, toilets, no rocks once your away from shore and ....NO KITES!!!!!
Early runs were on the Xcite 160 with 6.9 but moved down to the 135 as the wind built. Kept the 6.9 for most of the day...wasn't really overpowered, held it down and everything felt smooth!.
Everyone went smaller but I stayed out on the 6.9 and got my fastest runs. Then in the last hour the wind got up to around 20-25KTS, so I changed down to the 5.2
