Teralba, NSW, AU

Falcon 113/7.8-7.0 Vmax 37 and Isonic 117W R8 7.8 (RIP) 

Gusty NW/W 5-24kts. Tried the Falcon for a while and was on/off the plane. Got the 80 wide board out and it did the trick. 2 sec of 30.56 and the alpha on the big board. Was going well until I got hit by a Teralba bullet that threw me through my beloved R8 7.8. Straight through the third batten knocking two panels out in the process.  I am just having the worst run with gear at the moment. Rigged the 7m and had a sail with Byron and Cluffy but was pretty spent by then.

Jesus Christ Boston, you should buy a yacht - no chance of going through those sails 🤪

Bad luck Boston, What were you saying about the chances of damaging a sail?

Thanks, Tony, Lyds. Yes Andy, we discussed how hard it is to go through a sail as you really need to spear through between battens as the battens provide a fair bit of strength under tension together. What I overlooked was that if you hit the batten square and with enough velocity, it will break. Then you end up with two blown out panels instead of one and a sail that is uneconomical to repair.

That's a great idea, Mick. Trust a roofer to think of putting rates up! Bloody pirates!
