Sorry Evets & Hardie, no back up from me today, may be tomorrow?
Conditions looked similar to yesterday so rigged the same stuff, 6.6 on tight, 53cm board and 21cm broad base weedy.
Trouble was, wind didn't pick up, justed wafted around up and down, no squall either. Maybe I should have let some downhaul off, but I didn't think it would make enough difference, to be worthwhile.
It was Ann's day today, think she had more fun than anyone, zipping around on her formula board and 5.3 wave sail, especially since it's a long time since she's been out on it.
Really nice to see 2 ladies on the water today having fun!!!!!

Lilacs, Albany : Well the MOJO well and truly returned today, probably because the conditions were perfect for NM's, had a 5 x NM ave of 33.373knots, and that 35kt NM just felt fast the whole way, what a magic feeling, Doddi was here WooHoo, I'll let him tell you his tale, and Steve was here too, cant wait to see whether he smashed his NM PB as well. What a buzz, I needed that beginning to wonder whether I'd lost it.. Its a magic place this
Fave gear as usual. TR-7 6.3m, Manta 54, Pepweed 24cm, 42degree rake. Speacial mention to this fin, I think it contributed to staying fast the whole 2 kms!! Thans Pepe you're a star, wish you'd been here too!!!!!!!

Great conditions and great friends on the water. 3 pb alphas inc 1 port 1 starboard 25+.
4 pb miles.
Forecast was brilliant but suddenly dropped last night. I did not believe it would change and it was sensational.
thanks for the rigging advice Hardie for the alphas.
C'mon Elmo, I can see you not far off
That was brilliant fun. The NM runs were fractionally shallow so still some drag of fin on weed ( storm surge low today). But what was great was the wind was steady with gusts to top it off.
