Melville Beach, WA, AU,GUSTY !!

F2 SX Medium,7.5 Overdrive,38 Goldwing,got over powered later in the arvo,should have rigged a 6.5 but was too lazy to change down,was a fun sail

Pelican Point, WA, AU

Sonic 85, 5.7 Firefly, 32 cm fin

I was a bit worried I might be overpowered after rigging my 5.7 when else seemed to be using 5.2 and smaller. Decided to give it a go anyway. Good for blasting but a bit scary to gybe. A short but fun sail.

Hardies.  iSonic 94, MFC Weedburner 29, Ezzy 7m then Loft Blade 5.6.

Today's mission was distance, so got down to the estuary and found Lao Shi rigging up (we were the first ones there).  Initially rigged the 7m, and had some really fun racing with Lao out to a marker and back.  We were pretty evenly matched in the light winds, although I had it over him in the early planing stakes, and he had a good knot more than me in the gusts.

As the wind was kicking in we stopped for lunch, and changed down sails... then it was on to our hour mission.  Up we went to the top of the estuary, then fanged downwind.  All was looking good until the wind dropped out halfway through Yell Lao had some periods of slogging, so his hour will probably be a tiny bit less than mine... still happy with it though, considering that the wind wasn't going to play ball.

Afterwards we had some of the most intense slalom racing I've ever raced, we were really really close, although Lao had just a tiiiny bit more speed than me on the run back to shore most legs.  Some race smarts help as well Wink

Highlight of the day was Slowy sailing along 50 cm upwind of me yelling "Can you feel it?", after discussing the finer points of airflow over two parallel surfaces... Anyone else I would have been sh!tting my pants but man that guy knows how to sail Laughing

Great day out, fantastic to catch up with Hardie, Elmo, Evets, 25, Slowy, Lao, and all the other sailors whose names I've missed.

This beer tastes like manna from heaven Cool

Melville Beach - Sonic 95 , Ezzy 6.5 Infinity. JP Weed 31 / Choco weed 27.

Goal of the day was to break 100K (and get a PB). Got one of the two. The wind was very gusty, at times I was thinking I would need to change down but then it would drop out again. By the end of the day the wind seemed to have gone completely. I suppose I should have been able to bob another 250m but the conversion from nm to Km had me confused (and I had to be home to cook dinner Smile, and I was stuffed).

Chris and Jemma , huge congratulations , the best days of your life are ahead of you Embarassed ,  I couldnt sail Friday as it was my youngest sons last day of school !

Only realised after posting that I got an hour PB as well  - that was unexpected.

EDIT: Big day all round. Well done team!Cool

track

A great day of racing about with Nebbs. Very telling the difference weight makes. He had me on early planing and light winds and completely smoked me hard upwind but I got him in the gusts. The numbers don't show just how close it was.

Started with some lap racing to the first channel marker. Very close and great fun. That's when we need the helmet cams!

Rigged down and spent an hour getting to the top of the estuary to go for an hour.

I was well underpowered in the hour (should have rigged the 6.3) but wanted it to be a fair fight. Off the plane 4 times and so amazed that there was only 800m in it. Honours to you Mr Nebbian. 1 all on our Hardies hour races.

I had hoped that when we got to the run you would call it off but no Mr Sadist wanted to do the full hour. It was hard work.Cry

After working back upwind the wind kicked in ( ho, ho Mr Huey). 

Round 2 of the lap racing commenced. Some very physical one on one fully powered up. Exciting stuff.

Wind dropped and we called it at 90 miles. Wanted to do 100 but could not be stuffed rigging again.

Koncept 7.5, warp 5.7, sonic 100, elmo 29 cm weedy.

Well done on the Pbs guys. Sorry I was too lazy to do another 10ks for a distance PB.Embarassed

Far canal Nebs, you weren't joking yesterday when you said a double ton was Sunday's mission! Surprised

Not far shy of that, and given the patchy wind a bloody good effort.  Go Pinnas!!

Thanks Nebs.

Epic distance! Your're a machine. I'm always impressed with track pics from Mandurah how 170km can be so few squiggles...

Neb and Lao Shi, how long does it take to do 170km? Your average shows 21knts, hence 4-5 hours?

(For me - I know, takes 25 sessions Smile)

Thanks for the kind words Pinaroos Embarassed

Hey Obelix, it took us 5 hours and 40 minutes, although we did stop for lunch and to change down.

It's a lot easier sailing at Mandurah than Pinaroo, because the water is so flat.  And also time flies when you're having fun Laughing

Good to see a few PB's coming out today Wink. I had a quick bash at pelican point with the centurion, which was a refresher to say the least..gave up pretty quickly due to the gustiness.

Yaaarrrrhoooooo, well done guys. Looks like you all had a great day back home. Me, I was standing on the shore at Karumba, with the breeze a consitant 15-18 knots, flat water just beckoning, and all cos them furgin crocs live here too, I was checkmated. Cry A very sailable place I can tell you. But I would prefere I wasnt wanting to be lunch for a some hungry reptile, so just had to sit there and drool Laughing

Another great place would the fressh water dam at Mt Isa. No wind so couldnt try it out. But a stong breeze day and it would be great I reckon.

Keep the PB's hammering guys and girls. Cool

Only the mile and distance to go for a full set of 2010 PBs.

Damien adds to his ashes PBs. Well done!

Nice hour, Hardpole and so close to the ton for distance. Only alpha and mile for a full 2010 PB set for you.

Mineral, I will take the crabs at Hardie's over the crocs thanks. Thanks for keeping us updated on your trip.

Good work on the PB's guys! Two for Jeff! How annoying that you just missed out on the 100km. At least it gives you another milestone to go for I guess. Smile
