Green Island, QLD, AU Great Day on the island in 25-33 knots with the odd higher Gust .Kel & Benny Mccarthy arrived a
t ~ 930
Started on the falcon speed 52.5 witht he Tribal SW 25 Evo 6 5.8 -really nice combination..!!
Water got too shallow so changed down to the 23cms fin /briefly tried the JP speed 50 with the tribal delta 14 but falcon speed combo was the faster today .
Great fun & physically challenging.
Had a 43.08 on the dial today so happy !!

Decided to put some nappies on and head over to GI to sail with the Big Guns!.... The sun was out and the wind was fully cranking all day long!!! In fact, it seemed to just get windier as the session went on, especially towards the last bit as the tide was rising along with the chop. Top speed was on the first run of the day... Go figure!... Then my balls started to rapidly retract... Sooooooooo HECTIC!
Dr Cam super kindly sacrificed his 18cm Tribal fin for me to plug into the Exocet Turbo 106, with Severne OD 6.2 (I only had the Kestral 24 in the kit bag)... Thank goodness he did as it was super shallow for the first half.
Tried to give it a good crack today but struggled in the conditions- just couldn't manage to get close enough in to parallel with the top of the island on the speed run. Had some very elegant dismounts, and some not so- Kel will vouch for this!
Dr Cam & Capt'n Kel were both tearing it up on the strip today- really something to aspire to! The next Marvel Superheroes??!!
It is safe to say I am doing my bit in contributing to the sailing community economy... The beloved Exocet board has a pretty bad broken nose which now needs a really decent proper repair...
Top ten sailing day for sure! Thanks for the great company guys!!
Still clinging onto my NM jelly bean for the month...
Might be up for another session tomorrow, perhaps, in a more sedate location...
