Woooooohooooo! A very solid breeze this arvo after work at Sanctuary Point. Felt like 23 - 33 knots with some real punchy bullets. A great breeze for speed sailing, but the rolling chop made it a bit dangerous, as I found out (much to the amusement of the locals). I also entertained with some comical stacks trying to enter my gybes at 30 knots.

A sore neck and a new hole in my sail, but still carrying a big smile with an alpha PB. Even my 2nd best alpha was a PB!

Melville Beach, WA, AU 18 - 22 knots My fave combo 85 Sonic + 5.8 Koncept and 28 FO weedie.

Whoo Hoo! Passed the 28 knot mark at last. Surprising. I kept looking at the GPS thinking it must be 26. something because it didn't feel that fast. Why is it the fast runs don't feel all that fast?

A good workout and a few whoo hoo moments.

Looking at my top 5's it was a good session. 1 PB, a second best, and two third bests.

South of perth yaght club, WA, AU

had to take my sis to sailing so thought i might as well go for a windsurf

with the 6.2 out of action at the moment had the choice of 5.0 or 7.0

i was tricked a bit and thought there wasn't that much wind and therefore rigged the 7.0

was very powered up but the reflex just showed me why i like them so much and with a few tweaks she seatled right down

but was very choppy everywhere even over at peli and couldn't get over the bank thanks to the weed, tried once but didn't go so well

had some good blasting with peter mac and jake ( who were on 5.6 and 5.7 sails Surprised )

sailed upwind, racing against the sis and the other 420's for a bit then had the mission to get back downwind without going through a wave and over the front, made it with some near misses

congrats on the PB anita 30's gettin closer Wink

snides and troutty came out later too once again on 6.2 and 6.5 sails Surprised

can't believe the control in the reflex Tongue out

need to get a softer fin though the 32 carbon thingy is way too hard on the legs in that nasty chop

7.0 reflex, 85 sonic, 32 ? pointer

Late session after the W word.

Forgot how physical a Woodies sesh is. Wind was South so getting in to the run with any speed was hard.

Wind didn't seem to be as strong as expected and never really got the lorch flying. Probably would have gone better on the old girl.

Nice to have the chance to play with mast base settings and get some cruisy 10 sec runs. Straps are next to get the board feeling right.

 

Huge alpha PB for Chris of over a knot and his second best of the day a PB too! A really smooth corner with a min speed of 16.4!

Sorry I couldn't produce the back up. Was already on the water when your text came through.

Windxtasy,woohoo!!Cool over half a knot jump in 2sec. What was your display speed? More to come.

Snake! No Gps!Yell I stayed till shark o'clock trying to get my average up thinking I had to try and back you up!Frown Oh wellLaughing

That was good fun out there today Sean, amazed you held down the 7.0 Surprised I changed to 6.3 soon after I sailed with you and Peter the first time because the 5.7 was just too small for that gusty wind. Sailed up to shitsville and greeted Jesper with a big off (weeeeeeed much?) as he and Peter were standing on the bank Tongue out good fun at peli but as snides always says melville is utter crap in comparison!!!

Not at Safety Bay today Snakey? and where are your numbers?

Sean I knew something was wrong when I saw my 2 sec was just behind yours. You must have been struggling. It was pretty rough ou tin the middle.

Thanks for all the congratulations Guys, it makes a PB extra special.

Damo, it helps to be getting some decent wind at last, and it's nice to be out on my ol' favorite Sonic again. I do wish it would get up and sail off the fin like the Futura does though. Makes for a much nicer ride over chop and easier to keep up the speed on those downwind runs.

Mark, the display speed was 28.28. Far enough above 28 that I felt confident the 2 sec would still be above 28, even though the 10 sec on that run was only 26. As my previous PB was only 27.7 I knew it was a PB at least.

My goal for 2011 was to get above 30 knots. Only a month to go for a two knot increase. Can I do it?

yeh easy anita

come down with us to saftey bay on the right day and you should smash 30 easy

pop up the 4.9 koncept on the sonic with the 28 FO weedster

and do a nice bear away down the bar in the flatest water you have ever seen in 30 knots and you will easilly reach wind speed

just need the right day and to get your 4.9 tuned up before hand
