Distance mission. Melville

Started with the first 30k on the Battleship and 7.5 Koncept. Some great runs over to Nedlands and then the wind kicked in more than I expected. Last run in to the beach was totally out of control. Peak of 27.7.

Changed down to JP84 and Warp 6.3 for another 30k including a run to Wallyworld to see if Chris was there. Peak 31ish. Nautical mile on the way back.

Swapped pointer for 28cm elmo weedy and had an immediate speed increase and peak of 34.78 down the bar.

Good to have a few runs with Pointman and meet up with Windxtasy and the Southsiders.

My first session with my own GPS. The first of many. Still learning how to use it.

Sebreeze said 20-25 knots gusting 22-27. I don't think it was that strong at Melville.

5.3 KA Kult, started with 74L tabou, didn't feel balanced, changed to 85 L Sonic which was much better. Weedfin.

Got to Pt Walter late (4PM) after family lunch. Thought maybe the rack of lamb and cheesecake will work like a weight vest. But it didnt, after first hour started to feel OK.

Saw Chris with a broken boom, he was leaving as I arrived.  Having trouble getting upwind on the CA, probably just technique.

CA Sp53, choco 27 weedy, Koncept 5.8 - new GT31 as the old one died yesterday.

By the end of the session was getting the hang of carving the CA, might try moving the footstraps (they are in the back position) and see if that helps with getting upwind. 

Hope you get some distance backup, just couldnt resist trying the new board out Laughing

Nice strong seabreeze at Melville, around 20 - 25K.

Well powered on the Futura 111 + 7.0 TR5 + 40 Talon.  In fact I was over-cooked in the gusts and probably would've been more comfortable on the 93 S-Type, but I wasn't expecting it to be so windy and left it at home.

Pleased with these speeds on the larger board.  Stayed well downwind of the bank, cos with 40cm of fin I wasn't game to go too shallow.  Chased Mark around for a while, and he was still tearing it up when I left.  Sorry I couldn't offer up more kays mate...it was my turn to cook dinner Embarassed and I was home by 6.

Nice speeds Hardpole, bet you're gonna love the new CA!

Welcome to the fray Anita, good to see you posting.

And super effort on the distance Mark, it was pretty tough going in the chop out back today.

Headed to Pt Walter for a cruisy session... limped home after my fastest crash ever.

I was just getting keen after seeing Yoyo and Whitey (on a 25 year old board) both hit 37+ knots on their first run. I finally lined up a good gust through the flat stuff and started to take off (peaked at 36). The gust must have been just too much for my failing boom which snapped during acceleration. Next thing I knew I was bouncing across the water, first bounce slowed me to 32 knots and then the second got me down to 16. Despite bouncing it still felt like hitting a brick wall.

At home today with bruised ribs (fingers crossed) and a mighty sore neck. An impact vest might be my next purchase after a new boom.

CA SP47; Stealth 6.4; FO Weedster 260

Well done all on the PB's! What did I tell you Jeff!

Nice mile and hour, Pointy one! Sorry about the hour back up. Was not really on the agenda. We might get it syncronised one day.

Good bump up the table team.

Hope you heal quick, Chris. Bummer about the boom. Good speed though. No one was out when I sailed up there. I guess I must have been too early.

Nice speed Chris, shame about the boom.  I highly recommend the use of buoyancy/impact vests.  My ribs are still sore 3 weeks after my big stack at Woodies, can't imagine how bad it would've been if I wasn't wearing a vest!

No worries Mark, I didn't really set out for a good hour, as I was quite uncomfortable out there at times, but got one anyway.

Chris, I can't believe you were watching your GPS while bouncing!

Hope you're fit again soon.

Now for the true use of GPS

How far did you bounce?

Bouncing....a new category?

Looks like I travelled 29 metres after first hitting the water (2 bounces from memory).

Here's the interesting one: From boom breakage to rest = 68m. Scary to think what could have potentially happened over that distance. A good reminder not to enter a speed run too close to other sailors or objects.

On the mend! Neck is still stiff and it hurts to laugh.
