Teralba, NSW, AU

Exocet RS4, TR8 6.6, JP 38 - Wind WNW 15-25 kts

Top day on the lake.   Almost 28 degrees, sunny, and windy.   Water still cool but not bad in a springsuit.   Didnt expect any wind today but drove past the lake at 12:30 and it was a solid 30 knots.   Took a while to get down there and it had backed off a bit by then, but still well powered most of the time on the 6.6   Good to see Ian, Byron, Tony and Cluffy down there.   Welcome back summer Cool

Teralba, NSW, AU TR11 6.6m, Exocet RS2 90l, gasoil 32 and V max 33.

Realy nice sail gusty NW but some of the gusts got up near 30 had two gusts that powered up the 6.6 and got me over 37 one second.

Very warm spring suit on and sailing with the locals it was great.

The gasoil had great control and was very fast but no bottom end compaired to the V max. 90% was on the gasoil a very quick fin. Love pointer fins no comparison compared to weed fins.

now that's what I call an august westerly! some gnarly gusts and some frustrating lulls but mostly just trying not to get smashed. I went for NCX 6.5 and the 113 hawk the 6.5 was way to big for a while but was ok later on. The hawk was loving the bumpy stuff I could have gone for the falcon 90 but I don't think I would have gone much faster due to the bumpy water and my frilly white blouse. I watched byron hook into a pretty gnarly gust and not even budge out of his stance just turned it all into forwards for an astonishing burst of acceleration. I am also now part of a very small club. People who have seen byron fall in. I don't have pictures you'll just have to take my word for it lol.
