What an afternoonLaughing Only just a PB, It showed 38.00 on the GPS. Wind just kept building but after 4.5 hours out i was buggered. Looks like there will be some great numbers to come from the other gurus out today.

Great Day!!!!

Thanks for the loan of the fin JJ!

Another dismal effort to back up my team mates!Embarassed

I really should retire while I still have a shred of speedsailing self respect left!Undecided

Decided to sail across the river to Wallyworld after the W word to get out reasonably early.

Bit of a gamble on the 91 with a 23 fin. GAF trying to get across and wasn't much better on the other side.

Think it was Somepunk fanging around when I got there but he soon left.

One nice squirt for the peak but usual rubbish otherwise! Why do I sail here?Yell Not sure!

Wind started to drop out around 5.30 so decided to get back while I still could. Found that the fin bolts were only finger tight which I am sure helped!

Good to get out for a sail with a few of the Crew (Pinnaroos and Swan River Mob). However, still dealing with the effects of a cold so decided to call it a day early. Jake was just heading out as I Ieft.

Well done with the PBs Craig – great stuff!

Safety Bay. Some real wind!

Good to go fast again. Feels like a long time away...

Plenty of familiar faces. Lunny I must have missed out on meeting you, I think I know who you are now. Great scores!

Reasonably flat, nice breeze, a bit under done on the run.

Safety Bay, WA,

Super fun afternoon in a proper seabreeze at last.

Did a bunch of runs trying to catch up to Norts Frown and then more (total of 37 for the day) keeping Jake company later.

Good to see Geoff and Chris out and Jake smashing out big speeds on his new speed board - Greg will be happy!

And Lunny - awesome PBs, I know you're going to get a speed board soon Cool

Unfortunetly I didnt have time to make the trip to SB today, but managed to get an hour on the river. The wind was GAF, 25+ then literally NIL and back to 25+ again every 50m. It was hard to link together enough gusts to get a decent runFrown

I've been gaging to try out the Lorch speed board for weeks now, and although the conditions wern't really suitable I gave it a go anyway with a 6m. it was just to gusty to get it wound up to full speed today, but a lot easier to sail than I had expected, so I am optomistic that I can get a few more knots out of it when the conditions are better. In the end I gave up and had a few runs on my 90 Xfire before I had to go.

Lorch speed, 6.0 overdrive, 23 Tribal sped weed, then Xfire 90

Speeeeeeeeeeeeed booooarrrrrdddsss!!!!!! Love your work clockwood KissKissKiss

Safety Bay, WA, AU.

A mad rush of an afternoon. Left work at 3:15 but copped a stream of 'let's drive 40 in a 60 zone' chimps on the way down.so much rage. Probably not even on the water until 4:50 or 5:00. JJ urged me to get the runs done quick as the tide was coming in. He wasn't wrong! Choppy entry to the run made for an additional challenge, as if sailing a new board wasn't enough.I was really worried about spinout today for some reason,  never happened. Mind games meant I wasn't really pulling the trigger, frustration!! Got a few good runs but catching weed so went in for a break(down) and a quick briefing with speedy. 37 was the average target so back out to try again. This time the chop was breaking and rolling whitewash over the bar. Stupid traffic. Any way, played around with the sail and squeezed out a few more knots out of the run. Finally getting a string of mid to high 38s on the dial. Called it a day when a shark ate my 40 knot run.

Nice work Craig! It takes a lot to wear you out.

Lao - don't even consider retiring. 36.6 is pretty handy for Wally world, and it's still faster than I have ever managed...

Geoff- good to see you getting back into it! Get well soon!

Bono - Nice work in getting a top 5 2 sec!

Great back up by Lunny, Ports, JJ, and Geoff. Smile  Great PBs Lunny, nice speeds on the 91. Cool

Mark it's not you it's Wallyworld, the place sucks big hairy ones. Wink

Great scores everyone.

 

Hey Patrick - watch out for infection with that stubbed toe.

I trod on a sharp object in the shallows right in front of the rigging area at Peli about three weeks ago.  I went to my doc to get a tetanus shot and some antiobiotics and thought it was all good.  The infection spread and I've ended up with celulitis in my lower leg. I'm in hospital and have been on IV antibiotics since Wednesday night.  On Thursday I couldn't walk more than 3m. Hoping to get out of hospital late this week.  So..word of warning for everyone.  You can get very nasty bacterial (staff) infections with any open wound.  Consider appropriate foot protection.

JJ and Jake, thank you for easing my pain at not being able to sail today. 

Great work guys!!! Jake, why have you not had a speed board before now? We should have clubbed together and bought you one!

JJ - Mr Reliable, we are so lucky to have you on our team! You can always pump out the big speeds and inspire others to join you!...and only 2 knots slower than Slowie. I do believe you are catching up.

Super team turnout for a weekday...

Happy, happy captain - living vicariously again!

 

Birdman - I hope our team score is helping you feel better too! Prayers for a speedy recovery.

Jake, super effort in less than ideal conditions. Love to see what you can do with really flat water.

Pity about the traffic but you made the most of what you got. I'm sure that 39 made up for all the frustration.
