Glory Holes, Australind, WA, AU

the local still really shallow.

wussed out and stayed out fairly wide.

stretch was pushing through the shallow stuff

looked nice and flat though a bit hard to link up the gusts for a good nauti.

used a starboard iso 107 with a muf 23 delta and a severne 7.0 R6.

Novara, A bit dissapointed as I wanted to back up Sammy who's in Shark Bay, and the graphs say it was 22 to 28kts in Denham.  But it was still windsurfing which is such a magic thing to do.  Tabou Manta 88L 59wide, TR-9 6.3m, Delta 20/55.  Be interesting to compare today as I sailed at Novara, and could see people sailing at Liptons, and also in the Distance Fangy's.

Not too bad, bud started of with a grovel,... so had lunch before things got underway, then some fun. Wind was a bit up & down.

Tested out the new alpha markers, and found some more rocks as a result of a low tyde.

Had the f2-SX-R, ka kon5.8, 19sla delta in antisapation of a good forecast, but the 6.6 may have been beter.

Anyways not a bad arvos worth of sailing.,,,   Smile

Late start after a nice day out with my chickybabe.

When I got down there the wind was doing it's usual trick as Hardz was now of the water and Huey loves the Hardz nut hates my stylish Red fur.

Still the big fella talked me into going out and I'll be honest, I had a ball it was the left one but thats ok as it gangs a bit lower.

I went for a smaller than normal fin and it worked quite well although the ast foot was a poofteenth to far vack and the board was getting some serious air on the run over to Claudesville, twas nice to step out a longer leg with a bit of power.

Later on Oaf turned upgoiung the "Full Coodanup" Budgie smugglers a seat harness and a wry grin. Divide and seperate is not something you want to see when sailing I can tell you.

A couple of runs later the wind started to disapear further so I decided to flag it, which worked out great for Paul as the wind picked up and he was Flying which was just as well with the outfit he was wearing he had the eyes for it.

Great fun, good to catch up with Hardz and Oaf

 

Tested phone GPS software today Windrace and GPS LOGIT with GT11 as a benchmark, the windrace was interesting as the HDOP was pretty much <1,    whereas the Logit is normally around 5

Another great day at Fangies.Used the big 110L Man Over Board Slalom 22cm delta and 6.4 Tush Lightning.Thank you to Chris and Glenn for the help in rigging the sail.Definately the best it has ever worked .

Thanks also to Alfinn(Pas)and Wassajibe for the Markers.An excellent initiative. Thank you as well to Penny for expertise in rock finding.Perhaps you and Chris should consider a career change .To geology.

On the lefty..

Absolute fun session, did a double one.. 1st late am on my own and the 2nd one early arvo..  Had a ball runing it on both side. Wind was patchy, gusty because it kept changing direction Yell. Had only 2 good runs, then wind dropped at least 5 knts, cldnt finish my runs.. had almost more fun in the 2nd part Smile

The PC boys missed the best part which was short

Not sure what we going to do tomorrow..  wind should be ok, but the direction and tide.. mmh Undecided

I just want a good smoking session with Daff and Matt before they go..

If someone in Perth is sending us bad vabs.. pls pls stop because its working Frown

Misty47 - 21_LSP Sym, RSR_5.4 - Misty55 - 25_LSW - gosh I love those Tribal fins, really good Wink

Distance mission today with the Fin, and a test drive of the wazzfin alpha markers, the markers work well, (haven't analysed them yet), but I think they could get quite congested on a busy day. Main trouble is, it's part of the main sailing area, and there's sailors there who aren't doing alphas.

Anyway mission acomplished, aside from adding to,team points, I wanted to be the first to break the 300 FFT points, and also try to turn my equal 3rd in this years legends, into a 3rd outright. Too early to call that yet, but I've done the best I can.

Day was a tad dissapointing, (especially for salty thingoes, who's been outshined by his lovely wife, and is reluctant to post!), wind was forecast to kick in at 0900,  but was still very light at 1015, I hit the water anyway, with the 65cm board, 6.6koncept bagged out and the big deltoid. Surprisingly I got planing on my second leg, only at 15kts, but better than wallowing. by 1030 I was getting 25s trying out the alpha markers. After lunch it had picked up enough to swap to the 53cm board with 20cm 55deg weedy, and the sail downhauled and outhauled a tad more. Even thought for a while I'd have to waste some time and change down to the 5.8, but that didn't last long, by 1730 the wind was dropping again, by 1815 I had a big wallow almost the lenfth of the run.

Hands were getting too sore to pump, so called it quits.

 

Oh yeah, FFT points 322.679

 And broke through the 35ks mark

 

Didn't bother with the phone, Knew the battery wouldn't last the distance, so took the GT31 for a ride instead, just inaces the GW52 memory didn't hold out. It was a close thing, used about 90% of the data logger, even though I turned it off over lunch.

So just got around processing the GT31 data, it appears below.

2s 32.375, 5x10 29.806, 1hr 19.532, @ 23.074 NM 29.141, dist 208.597

I'm going away no to investigate the alphas, they appear to be different tracks.

 

Very interesting, the problem appears to be with the GT31, looks like the data becane a bit iffy going into the gybe.

Here's the speed graphs of both, with the sdop values superimposed, top is GT31, bottom GW52

sdop comparison GT31 GW52

I gather that the sdop dots shows the margin of error. For the GW52 the margin is hardly visible, where as for the GT31 there's a big margin of error going in to the gybe.

Aptly named Hangover Bay. Vintage Missy edge,Koncept 7.5 ->5.8 JP weed31

No swell so it was just a bit of mucking about in open water chop. Good times but I needed to have a couple of nanna naps on the beach with a few sail changes in between. I suspect the busload of Japanese tourists thought they were taking pictures of a basking sea lion.Embarassed

Nice late evening sail. Felt like a change and headed over to Novara. Good to see Elmo out doing his mega long runs.


It was so good to have a decent amount of fin in the water even if I didn't have enough shorts for Elmo's taste. Very happy to see 30 on the dial and had my fastest run out in the bigger chop heading towards the marker about a mile out.

Huge session Mike, with good numbers all round. I think Mark and Lunny could have an idea of how tired you feel tonight. You have a few years on them though.

Where was it we made our tips on what the winning score would be? My tip is not looking so outrageous now.

I am glad to see you are trying so hard to be amongst the frontrunners for the Fangtastic 5. That must mean you are really keen to have another game of Fangtastic Fangyland...

Good work Fin, firstly with the markers....I gather you marked the hitherto unknown Miniature Hidden Reef absolutely spot-on.Surprised...GirlSpeed has tried to reduce it a bit but with limited success! ....and secondly with your distance too.

Fang, Hangover Bay's a top spot, I've parked the palace there a few times. The only time I sailed there it was howling, I struggled with my 5.8, had trouble finding the gap on the way in, the reef had me worried and wore myself out after a few runs Embarassed
