It didn't look too promising when I arrived at lunchtime, however as I was rigging I saw a darker than usual cloud so raced to get in the water and managed to catch probably the gust of the day. Then the wind backed right off for ages so after another couple of runs called it a day.
As I was leaving the sky cleared and the wind came in stronger and more constant - happy to make the sacrifice for the crew who don't get to sail during the week

Took the gusty combo today and it was the right choice. A little full on in the worst of the chop but for the most part schmick. My fastest speed on the 111, hook a good gust with a flat patch north of the kite zone and got 32.77 on the dial .
Invested in a PFD/Impact vest today... lucky cause I had my first big off for yonks and took the brunt of it in the ribs. A little winded but the vest worked a treat!
Good to catch up with a few crew. I had one great view of snake and lao come back from the point absolutely flying over the chop.

Melville Beach, WA, AU. 115L, 7m.
Just purchased a new GT31. The Genie display shows 27.6 knts, so I' a bit puzzled, but never mind, there will be other opportunities.
Pinnaroo Point had soem unwelcome guests, so I thouth the river would be safer.
Mark was there, Snake, Jeff. Then just before I left I caught up with Patrick too. I noticed Damo's car, but couldn't spot him. Good to see you guys again, after sailing Pinnaroo's only.

Almost wintery day at Melville with a great team turn out and plenty of crew on the water.
Best wind was at the end of the day, sorry JJ!
Well done to JJ on top Swan River peak! His timing is superb.
Almost a full set of PBs from Obelix!
Macka testing his new impact vest with crash of the day and a great speed on the 111.

got down to melville after a tough 59 hour working week to see chris just getting in off the water and i had to go hit him up for a day on his 112
much to my delight he was nice enough to give it up
rigged the 7.0 to match but interestingly the wind filled in quite strong, so it was going to be a real test
i was realy struggling to start with but tweaking the rig board and swapping fins once i was finaly getting it pretty sweet by the end, i had some good slalom practice in the end and once i got the gybing down pact you can see in the numbers the 112 is pretty bloody good at going around corners
all up can't wait to get mine and get the 6.2 on it
7.0 reflex, 112 mistral sl, clockwood carbon 35 pointer (bit too stupid for me in the chop and over powered stuff) then 34 scarrgo carbon pointer (much better hehehe stoked i can even say those two fins come close net alone mine is better in some conditions for me)

Melville Beach - 7.3 and 121 , when it picked up later put the 95 sonic on. nice sunny day except for the rain ! Almost crowded at times. Nice to catch up with everyone. Great to see Obelix and well done on the PBs - I bet the river felt really flat to you !
