Falcon speed, redline 5.6, 26ex. Bit underpowered, but a good solid session anyway
|Mike Sinclair (24401km): |
Estuary on SL58 then SL62 with Maui TR3 5.9, C3 Venom 34.
Onto SP6 55cm speed board later, with Mykz 250@25 fin, TR3 5.9......real nice combo.
Water getting faster and faster as the tide dropped but getting a bit dangerous also with the plague getting worse as the water got
Had one of them do a jump right in front as I whizzed past at 35+ and you (and they) have no idea where they are going to end
Would have liked to sail on as the speeds were going up easily, but too dodgy with the kites around.
Nice session and one of the rare (for this year) proper easterly days.
More of that please hughie !

Lake Ellesmere and then Estuary.
CA SL58, C3 Venom 34, Maui TR5 5.9
Went to Ellesmere to try for hour and distance with Mike but way too rough, not possible to get much speed so binned it and back to

Bloody stoked with this session. Great way to spend your 51st birthday. Good solid 25knot easterly on the estuary with the team on a Wednesday afternoon.
SL58 and 7.0 Overdrive, 30 Vector Rockit for first 45mins. Only went up wind for one mile run and finally cracked the 30knots. Saw Mike flying on the flat water downwind so changed to CA SP 50 with same sail and a 26cm C3 Venom.
Been looking forward to trying this combo all season ie big sail, small fin on the speed board. The 26 C3 Venom was frigging awesome even in the chop. I couldn't believe it. Moved the mastfoot forward and boom height up and the board was a pleasure to sail.
I should have sailed the SP50 for the whole session as I think I've found the sweet spot(at last) and the chop is not a issue anymore
Huge distance Terry
