 Patchy - 15-23kts S- SSE 5 mile Lake George, SA, AU

 Sailed 1- 6.20pm

 6.2m OD- 80 iso- 16.5cm FF ( cutdown 22) one run 

 then 21.5cm FF ( cutdown 24)

 then 18 tribal delta

Well I worked my butt off today for some pretty average results. I didn't enjoy today at all..Frown

 Tomorrow , bugger stats .. I'm going to have fun!Tongue out

I had my mind set on doing an hr. It was a trainwreck..Undecided

 Went out with the 16.5cm and decided I wanted something a bit bigger to trust in the chop as I was pretty powered up in the gusts. Back in for the 21.5cm.

 It was pretty obviously not a good day for an hr attempt. The wind was patchy , one minute hanging on going flatout in chop ,the next trying to keep planing..Undecided But I'm a stubborn bugger and wanted to give it a go.

I've been gybing really well all trip. Lucky to have botched 2..Today  I was pscyhed out as I didn't want to botch the hr. I gybed in lulls, and generally felt horrible! Sometimes the board just went straight ahead..I almost thought the fin was playing up but I think I was hanging back. the few gybes where I did use a gust went well.

 I fell in halway through and took a while to waterstart.. that should have been the cue to give up but I'm pigheaded and thought mabye I could catch it up..Undecided

Anyway  I 'killed' myself for a 19.83 hr..Undecided

 Got the 2 sec on the fat fin down at the Spit. 

I had food and water but I should have worn my winter wettie as I was really cold all the way back which was worrying me a bit. I was glad to have the big FF in to get back. It was an easier trip than i expected.

 I decided to try for some speed as there were flat patches up the top. It was pretty darn choppy at the Spit although the weedbeds were working.

 I would have liked to use a smaller board but it was too patchy getting out. I changed to the tribal for a faster fin.

I haven't used the Tribal much and don't have the skill with it. I was surprised it held well even with me sailing like a sack of spuds but I wasn't game to get up it.

I couldn't get any decent speeds over there. Occasionally I'd get a gust in the flats but I was only getting 31s so I lost interest and just stayed out till I got 100.

Thanks Tony. Its getting better but so is overall speed so I dont really count it as much of an improvement. Laughing I need to be doing those alphas when 5x10 speeds are lower, like you do so well!

Excellent work Ian. The spit was good. I mainly did broad reaches but was surprised how fast the reaches along the shore were. My mini m and laptop are  caput so I will post when I get home.
