Fangy's with a damn good breeze and a mob of damn good peeps, except Mineral.The sneaky bugger thought I would forget about that he was banned from Fangys because of his 'Magical Munt Fangys Gear' skills. In fact he was right, I did forget right up to the point in time when my boom disintegrated.
Still it was fun for the few minutes before he wove his magic. Which just to add salt into the wound, he did so when I was right up the top end. Some handy Nanna Crochet Skills and I was able to limp home. Thanks to Obi One Tobi who slowed down fractionally from Millenium Falcon Speed to ask if I was ok.
So I narrowly avoided another walk home through the crabs, but that was probably not enough to make it a TTF day. But I reckon for just about everyone else it will be and that my friends does get it over the line.Top Ten Fangy Day
Now does anyone have a boom for sale?

Novara. It was today or never, long time since I've had an alpha PB, it was a good 2 days leading up to it, good training stronger every day, today felt like the fastest gybing i've ever done (4 x 26kt alphas), conditions were a solid 20 to 25 kt seabreeze, dead flat water (Cheating) in Alphaland (Thanx again Tom Maj, top job on the alpha markers). Expect to see some good speeds and PB;s today if people went to Fangy's or Liptons, apparently Safety Bay was ballistic!!
Not sure I can do much better than today, was on my limits, I doubt the 27Kt Alpha Club will ever be open to me, but ya never know? and never say never, except sometimes

A top 100 Franga day, if only to share Mike's Nm and be the first to stare into his sparkling eyes, good onya mate and good to show me I have another 10 years before I peak
Besides sharing the stoke of Decrepits Pb I had a great day also, not so many K's today a bit worn out, not used to it. I had some good drag races but still getting creamed on the downwinders but loving this place for the windsurfing and people
Normally I hang around till sunset talking crap but got the urge to go home to lovely wife for some reds and the promise of spaget

The wind came in abit late in the arvo, but it came in good. Was a bit shaken, but not stirred, at the start but settled in
for two hrs of fun out at "funjees"!!!
Had the old slalom52 with ka kon5.8 and the demo delta sla19 for stability.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, that's better!!!! As Fangy says a top 10 day.
Anenometer said very similar to yesterday, so I rigged the 5.8 instead of the 5.4, and had another go with the 43, this time I used the 18cm 50deg S assy.
Worked a treat, it's a bit harder to get going in the shallows, but I think it's faster downwind. cause this is my fastest in the estuary outside Creery's lagoon, and it'a a PB NM. I'm sure the 2015 Koncept has something to do with it as well.
Lots of fun screaming around with Firie, this time he only went past me once.
Another great day with lots of sailors on the water, plenty of wind and flat water.
Only down side, the phone told me I had a 37+ 2sec and the GW52's max speed was 27.7, so I was inclined to believe it, should know better by now.

SBay at my local first, full lited on the 5.0RS, thought I could do something there, but got stocked on the bar.. outhere was epic.. about 28knts, did not even got a run!! look the watch 16.00.. thought stuff this.. packed the gear rush down to Fangyss, I was still dreaming of thoses long legs ah ah ah
Fangys, el Capo was all excited, he had some bloody good numbers, and was putting a bit of pressure on me for back up ah ah ah
I say, I see what I can do.. the usual supects was there smoking the runs, looked just good enough the 47.. so used same gear as yesterday, smaller board. Going to need a better fin, I hit the wall at 38, got lifted wiz it few time!!
Not fully powered, but thats was just greeeeat doing those runs, only time for 6 legs, the last one my leg was burning so much, I call it, no need to be greedy . I had 3x 35 NM and 3x 34s, my best speed was the first one, then the wind backed a touch..short session, still bloody fantastic
Like I said yesterday, this place is the nauthy spot , happy wiz a PB
note: I came in Salty was going nuts, I left and he was still going nuts, this guy is on something.. what ever it is.. I want some
