c 15-23kts odd SSw - S  Buff Pt Budgewoi Lake, NSW, AU.

 Went out with the 6m OD -FF79ltre + 20cms delta. Probably needed the 6m for bearaways but too much gybing in the chop etc. Tired today and couldn't be bothered. Got top speed with this combo.Hung in c 40mins then in to rig 5m. NM was my run home with 3 gybes in it..Frown Also surprised my best speed was going out into the chop.Probably because that's where it was windiest..Undecided

 Bryon going with his 6.6m. 5m much more managable and it had kicked in a bit so ok in the gusts although I always seemed to be working out into the chop when the gusts came through and missed them in the flat..Yell Shallow. Hit bottom quite a few times mid gybe and jumped off..

Andrew, Byron and Wayne out. Bruce arrived after I finished and it was dying a bit.Surprised more people weren't there.

 Love the way the falcon rises up onto the fin as you take off beachstarting..Tongue out Don't know how I'll go with it in the chop- might be a handful.It seems to like a large radius gybe in the chop. Went for a few alphas in the flat but bottomed out halfway round.

Arvo shift, after Sue & Byron had quit, Wayno & Andrew came in for a break & went back out with me. Was nice & strong, about 18-20 knots, never off the plane except for falls. Rain was a bit annoying but just a drizzle. At least the water had cooled down a bit. CASL62, 6.6, 19MUF

Wayne said today than he ran into a large log. Looking at his track I think I can see where it happened.

I have superinposed all our tracks to see how close we came to hitting it!

Surprised Cripes I was close..at least I was going upwind so I wouldn't have been going very fast..I hope someone can move or mark it.

 Great that you could find it on the tracks Andrew.

Thinking I  will need a normal ( non delta ) weedy for sailing the Falcon in chop ( Canton / Lake Mac)..Does anyone have a tuttle decent weedie for say a 5 or 6m sail..I usually use a 29cms for that but maybeI  can go a bit smaller? It would be nice to sail it with some fin pressure for once to see how it goes.

Hey Russ that old board is still staying together..UndecidedLaughing

 Andrew I'm not very good with a GPs but now you have the position surely someone who has more knowledge can get the coordinates of the log and use these to go out and mark or remove it? Take their GPS out with them to find the obstacle?

The coords of the log are

 33°14'33.62"S   151°32'49.03"E

Sue, I have a couple of weed fins you might like to try, they are too small for me, but may suit you.

Andrew,

Good work, laying the tracks over each other is fascinating. Scary how close we came to the log. One thing for sure, when you look at all those tracks from just 4 people it is not "if" someone will hit the thing, it is "when" & 'how often".

Great detective work Andrew. You have nailed the spot I reckon, just need a crew to find it and move it/mark it somehow.

Bruce is right, it's just a matter of when not if.
