Sitting in my car at marmong watching the gusts.. it was utterly feral. windy but just not a fun situation. I decided stuff this and went down to budgie. That was a lot more fun. Apart from the flat water, the breeze was a totally different kettle of fish. Still up and down but nothing like the dementor gusts that marmong was throwing out. It was worth the trip just for some decent breeze.
I only got wound up twice in the smooth stuff and my 50 degrees fin was speed bumping a fair bit but it still brought a big grin to my face. My home made fin worked great except for the rake angle. It couldn't quite handle the heavier weed. Great spot though I can see why you guys like it. I was running a 90 litre falcon with a 7 metre. What size delta fin should I be looking at for that combo?

Arrived late and missed the best of it. Pretty poor session, but at least it was warm and sunny.
Cluffy I use a 19 with my 6.6, for a 7 I would be thinking a 20

Good sail! All started rigging big but then it came in so went down a bit- died off as soon as I hit the water but in typical W style came back in and fun sailing. Better angle for bearaways than yesterday. Got the 2 sec in one of my first runs. Disapointed in speed - considering how flat it was and i was comfortably powered I expected better.I think the thick weed is giving a lot of drag.
Didn't get one alpha as too shallow to gybe! Planned to get one and hit bottom half way through - pity as dead flat. I'll have to plan for some next sail.
Mick , Milsy , Wayne , Byron and me then Andrew and Mat . Tired but happy.
As usual better wind at Newie but not much flat water!
