Albany 6.6 TR Race,57 mistral, 23delta Great session with the boys. First time on a delta. Thanks Palmsy for the lend. Very impressed with the fin. Called it a day early as a snapped a harness line and nearly pulled shoulder out of the socket. New sails feel super grunty. Awesome to get away from the heat. Huge effort by Snano and Saltbag on the distance

Lilacs, Albany

5.7 RRD Firewing, 58 Mistral, 19delta then after lunch 47 Mistral, 17 Delta

Forest Gump- Started Sailing and kept onnn Sailing.

All the stars alligned today, good wind, storms cleared, Kaison looked after by Dad(thanks heaps), and my back felt the best in ages. To add to that I didn't hit any fence posts or stingrays or tread on any nasty sea creaturesSmile

After feeding the young one breaky and organising his day i arrived down the bay about 7.30 just as Shano, Doddi and Bono showed up.

After checking out the wind, rigged quickly and hit the water with Shano and Dale. I sailed the first 4 hours straight only to slip of the deck in a gybe in the last few minutes. I sailed this session fairly easy, did some Alphas, but mostly tried to save energy and keep the load of my bung elbow and sore shins.

Went in for 15min lunch(mostly water) at 12.30, GPS showed 95NM.

I swapped out boards for the 47 Mistral and hit the water. I spent the next couple of hours mucking around with a few alphas and speed runs. Tried two nauties but took too much energy getting up the top so gave them a miss for the rest of the day.

Another quick drink break and banana. Next two hours felt like the watch was hardly moving. I was getting clumbsy in gybes and feeling fatigued. Mind was starting to think about quiting.

Came in for another break and more water to find Sammy and Mathew Robertson and his mate talking shop. My fingers were stinging and in intense pain for the first 5 minutes after letting go of the boom and trying to straighten my fingers.Yell  Had 180NM on the GPS.

Considered swapping back to the 58 to ease the stress in the gybes, but forgot and kept plowing on.

Sailed till the sun hit the deck and got out of the water at 7.20pm. The last few hours felt easy and I started feeling better and better, maybe sailed past the pain barrier. Was later joined by Elmo and some locals. Had the same intense finger pain at the end of the last sessionYell

Managed to unrig in natural light and got back to the folks home in time to tuck Kaison in bed.Tongue out

Top day on the water.Smile

For those who might be interested I had a closer look at my time on water and average speeds.

1st session- 8.24- 12.21      95.47NM   176.82KM

2nd session- 12.58- 2.30    130.77NM   242.19KM

3rd session- 2.47- 4.53       178.94NM  331.39KM

4th session- 5.16- 7.20-      GPS showed 229.8NM 425.59KM but GPSAR dropped it to 423.06.

I use two Gps units one on my upper arm to see my speeds and one on my shoulder.

My arm unit showed slightly more 230.1NM 426.14km but I use my shoulder unit for posting as that is the one I use for alphas with less signal issues.

If my maths is correct Approx 9 hours 40 min on the water.

My top 5 x hour average was 24.53 knots.

Average speed for the day 23.77 knots.

Phenomenal Chris! You're in the top 10 GPSTC distances of all time, and #1 in WA, beating Claude by 120m if my calculations are correct. Was your maths excellent, or were you just lucky?

Shane, a huge effort from you too, a mammoth team score, and I think you're likely to keep that jellybean! Well done on the hour PB too.

Incredible effort guys.I do wonder if you are going into scary territory whe you feel  better and better. Your brain is clearly not getting the messages your distressed body is sending.

Great courage and determination

Wow, if rigging time was 45min, i.e. a starting time of 8.15am and finishing time of 7.20pm with 3off 15 minute breaks during the day, then that works out to be about 10 1/4 hrs on the water for 228 nuatical miles - I.E an average speed over the whole day of over 22kts. That is amazing!

I can't even comprehend the first session of four straight hours without falling off, let alone the full day it takes to rack a distance like that. Amazing physical and mental achievement. Congratulations.

[edit] I just replayed your track at 1000x speed and watched you completely 'paint' the inner bay...if there were any fenceposts, you would have found them. :)
