GUSTY - 10 to 30 knots, a liitle frustrating at times Yell

Tried an "Hour" a few times but fell into a hole in less than 5 minutes each time. Went gust-hunting instead.

Fastest run again on port heading to Majestics - I'm not sure why, it's much flatter the other way...

Got stuck in a meeting at work today and was resigned to the fact that i'd missed my chance. On the way home I got angry, so I pushed on to Melville and decided to try for some sort of hour even if I had to sail into the dark...which I did. On the water at 5:30 and off at 6:30.

Sailing angry is good for endurance.

Good to see Mark, Patrick and Greg out there doing laps. Heard Greg hooting as he was bearing down on me in a nice little squall on dusk.

Arrived home to be greeted by Arie - "Good windsurf Daddy?" which made my day.

Very up and down, hard to tune. Ended up changing the fin, moving harness lines about six inches forward and the mast track back a couple of cms and it started to feel better. Great to see so many out on a crappy arvo mid week. Good turn out for the Pinnas - saw el capitano, Pointman, Hardpole and Ports

Missed the best squall of my session and had to do a run coming back towards the carpark half way down the bay for peak speed. Rigged for the squall but only one more decent one came and should have rigged the 7m.

Wind was full of holes and looks like I packed up as the steadiest wind came in.

Mile has a gybe in it and was the first run of the day in the squall.

Great hour, Chris. Sorry about the back upEmbarassed

Fun sesh at Melville after work.

Late start, on the water at 5.30, and it didn't look windy when I arrived, so I went large...8.4 TR8 + 135 Patrik + 46 Sting.

Gusts were solid, but I was a bit overpowered on the 8.4 and couldn't milk more than 28K out of the big board.  Breeze filled in around dusk so I grabbed the F111 + 40 Sting for the last half hour, which was the right call.

Even then I was struggling to find a 30 peak.  I thought I was going slow, but I think it felt windier than it was hanging on to the big rag.  7.6 would've been a better choice, but I was determined not to get skunked after 2 and half weeks without a sail.

The back held up well, so hopefully a bit more TOW for me next month! Cool

I thought you might be out there again, JJ. You must be as fit as a flea with all this TOW this month.

It looked windier than yesterday, with less holes. Was it?

Frustrating to not have my car, although I did need a rest day.

The down side is that I start my work day now...

It was actually much gustier today - at least where I was sailing!

Yeah, good job Chris, I found it impossible earlier to get into a groove to do an hour - the wind was soo gusty.
