5 mile - Lake George SA

YEEHAA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Did a Maree  today and decided to just have fun.Still tired from yesterdays distance..

16 - 19ktsS 5 mile 79ltre ff + 6m OD + 25cm lessacher weedie.

Powered in gusts but gusty and had trouble getting into the top of the speed strip and then not powered enough so decided to go for some reaches -fun for that. Maree had given me some stance tips and worked well in gusts.. Had a ball and thought Id try for an hour..grr Yell stopped 9 mins short came in and had a drink then waded back out through the mud for another few runs. Cripes could have been good if I had kept sailing. Sailed really well didn't drop a gybe even in chop and only stopped once to clear crap off the fin.

Got my confidence and did some runs through the chop to Cockies ( not that big but not flat ) .Been trying to get an alpha over 20kts for ages-knew I was gybing well just out of radius - got 6 alphas over 20 kts and 4 over 19kts today and they were in small chop..Surprised Tongue out 

 Came in and raved at Daffy re best I've sailed ever and he burst my bubble by saying he'd taken video of me so he coukd show me all my bad technique..Frown

B tablet..sorry have to continue here.Followed Daffy across to Cockies and did a little of the speed run..glass like a mirror for c 100m Tongue out Would have loved a few tries but tired and took a few tacks to get back..Hehe..Think the campers next to are wondering what the screech was when I uploaded and got the alpha results..Laughing .Hope I get another similar day as I'd like to up the hour and should be easy enough if I do another 10 mins.Yell Undecided Insert many little excited bouncing icons!!!

Thanks James.. I wear a watch but didn't pay enough attention to when I went out..Embarassed Still jet lagged from the distance the day before. Biggest thing that has improved my alphas is nderstanding what to aim for. A few years ago someone told me I had to recross my tracks after the gbe so for years I've geen working upwind straight after..Undecided

Good going Sue! You must be so fit backing up day after day with those distances. How much longer are you there?

I am only getting to sail about once a week atm and thats not enough to keep the fitness up. I feel like I've been hit by a truck the day after!

It makes a big difference sailing everyday although I think Im wearing out rather than getting fit..Doesn't help thst I only got 5hrs sleep because buzzing re alpha PB's Laughing I'm making the most of it as there will be no wind when I go home and I'll be lucky to get out once a week..Pity to lose the fitness.. 3 more days here..no wind tomorrow..thank goodness zzzzzzz..Wink then looks like 2 big days..Hoping to iup my 2 sec although I still haven't got very good at getting to the top of the speedrun..

Did you get any sailing when you were off?

Only yesterday and that one day a week ago. Shark Bay was looking good but hubby didn't want to go there. Its a long drive and not much else there if you are not into sailing, and the sailing spots are very isolated.

Tomorrow is looking good if I have recovered sufficiently.

I know what you mean about not being able to sleep after a PB!
