20-30kts+ WNW Budgewoi Lake, NSW, AU- Yeehaaa!!!!!!!!! What a day..
The planets finally lined up with strong wind at Peelie! Had to get home by 4 for a customer but buggered by 2 anyway..
Noone there when I arrived.. Got the 7.5m out but wind picking up so rigged the 6.6m Severne race with 115 Xcross + 20cm delta..Unreal flying through flat water.. some nice gybes. Picked up wildy but luckily close to launch so in and rigged 4.8m Hucker + 78ltre Tabou Pocket wave + 18cm freemove weedie.
Didn't bring my 68ltre as I didn't expect any wind.. Bugger could have gone even faster with it..After looking at the bearaway that gave me my previous Pb a year ago realised I needed to bear off WAY more..Did a couple of really long ones and stopped and looked at the GPS 33.04..Let out a few yeeehaas! people on the cycle way gave me a funny look ( ended up being a sailor so he knew what was going on ) and went out to up it.. Wind really came in and pretty dangerous at times but adrenaline up and didnt stack any although too windy to try and gybe.
I reckon with a slalom board and cammed 5m I should be able to do 35kts +
Frothie killing it + Byron ( be a few PB"s tonight!) Mick , Milsy , Wayne , Paul , Mat and others..I was pushing my luck and going in really close and went past a 6 x 4 piece of wood! (marked on google map below so be careful)
Norah graph reads ridiculously low at that angle..

Budgewoi Lake, NSW, AU CA44 TR9 6.6m 20cm vector 48 deg weed also tried 19 delts. 53 Mark Pederson with 19 delta 25 plus year old re-built.
Had 43.09 one second so a bit disapointed it smashed me down again both GPS units showed the same over 43 knots.Did this on the speed board early when there was a big gust of wind. was always searching for that gust at the time you wanted.
Got over 39 on the old Pederson and I am sure it gave me the Alpha over 25.
Great day very sore I just love speed sailing.
Great to sail with so many people.
Lake mack will post a good score today.
Great to see Nick on the water again you ride a speed board like a slalom board.
Hue and Greg smashing it pushing the 40 knot barrier just searching for that extra gust today.
