Foreshore Rd, Botany, NSW, AU 15-25kt W || 118 Manta 6.0 Simmer/7.7TRX 44 T-Lab

Fun session in the westerly. It started strong so I managed to get in a fair amount of planing on the 6.0. Happy with those kms in the bank, I was prepared to risk another step up to 7.7 when then wind backed down a little. When I got back to the beach though, it stepped back up to well over 20kts again and I was thinking game over. Knew it would be too lucky for this to work out 2 weeks in a row......BUT!!!!! Not the case because lady luck shined again Innocent Had a go anyway and once planing it stuck to around 22-24kt and I was nicely powered up with the TRX handling super easy. So amazingly stable you could almost just hang off the boom hands free, sip a cappucino and catch up on your text messages while planing through the gusts Cool
