Coal Point, NSW, AU

I don't understand this speed sailing business. All year I have been trying to go fast with little result. A few weeks ago I broke my 75% carbon mast. So today I had to resort to my 60% carbon. To make things worse I put way to big a fin (40cm) on my Isonic 101. then the bottom batten cracked so I had no tension in the lower part of the sail (6.8m). There wasn't even very much wind perhaps 15-20 knots.

I was getting over 30 knots speeds on most runs, but only for 2 or 3 seconds (which is why my 5*10 is so far behind). I was staying as close to the sand islands as possible and only bearing away when the biggest gust hit, that way I was getting perhaps 5 seconds of flat water before hitting the chop.
