Melville Beach, WA, AU

Wind consistently variable interspersed with bullets next to holes.

Saw Danjiel wallowing then almost blown out of the water

Rocket 125 then 105, Gator 6.0m no cam, 32 pointer

Actually got the 29knots on the 125 board, the fastest I have been on the big board, which felt good. Changed to the smaller board as the wind picked up but by then the wind bullets were too fearsome to really let go. At this stage I saw a lot of good sailors rigged up and standing on the beach, so I decided to join them.

Peel Inlet, WA, AU 5.7K 47M 23 tribal weedy

A very comfortable combo when I set off turned into a real handful when the wind went into hyperdrive, especially when combined with the high tide chop. I knew I wouldn't be much help to the team with the 2 sec so I decided to go for my fave nautical mile run, which was hair raising to say the least. Not quite as fast as my Coodanup PB but 10 times more exciting. I should have gone further to get a better nauti but I didn't want to (was too scared to) hold on any longer. It was on the way back that the wind picked up another 10 knots and it was all I could do to sail back (with a number of tacking legs). When I returned most people were standing about in the shallows, sheltering, and most decided to call it a day at that point because the wind was mental and the chop was dangerous. The big guys were still bearing away fearlesssly but still clattering over the chop for 40+ numbers but the mere mortals and those lacking in testosterone deiced that getting home unscathed was a better idea and called it a day.

A good team turnout, thanks for coming along guys, some PBs scored and some really big efforts put in. It was a really social day with a good turnout from all teams. I hope you all had fun and that the chop didn't spoil your day too much.

Peel Inlet, WA, AU

Probably the windiest I've sailed for about 10 yrs. Wind was around 20-25 knots when I ventured out. Rigged a 6.4m RSR and was nicely powered up. First few runs was pulling 34s and 36s peaks on both Grey Pt and inner bay. Channel crossing was dicey. Could not go over a peak of 36.9, then the wind kicked in hard@. Gust over 34knt and still flying the 6.4m. What was I thinking... OK one more run across to Pt Grey and then head in for lunch and rig down to a 5.4m. On the way back from Pt Grey the forearm fatigue finally took it's toll and ended in the drink in the middle of the channel. After several minutes of trying to fly the rig, I finally got back up, but was now fully fatigued. Walk of shame back to the carpark followed by lunch. Deceided to pack it in and fight another day.

Left home early to get a parking spot predicting a busy one, and it was. Rough as guts for Liptons and very gusty. Happy with the 2sec but it really indicates how peaky it was. Just had to fluke a good gust in a relatively flat spot, grit the teeth and hold on, i guess i wimped out at top speed or maybe the 10sec would have been betterEmbarassed. Good to meet Tim and FirieBob finally. Started on the F2 Missile but it wasnt quite constant enough at the time so on with the Mistral sl91. Elmo and Stroppos advice was bang on when i was considering swapping back to the F2, it was wise to stick with the 91. Good day but very tiring. Loads out too.

Found my limit today with the Kode FSW - 3 runs over 37 knots then I started to lose my nerve in the ugly chop. The board was becoming super twitchy - had a couple of epic spinouts.

Borrowed Mark's M91 for a run and went a knot faster and in much better control. Cruisy almost in comparison.

Not great sailing, storm surge meant no real flat water and 30 knot+ short bullets to deal with. Can't argue about the drive though Laughing

Nice to catch up with Chris, watched him doing a very smooth 36 knot+ run, it looked like he was napping Cool

Quick blat down at the local. First run was quickest, then the wind backed of a tad. Never sailed that direction at Peli on a high tide, it allowed for parallel runs with the shore.

Had my arse handed to me at PW. The wind was so late I thought it wouldn't happen per the forecast. It booted in just as I got on the water with a 6.4, some of the gusts would have been over 30. I was totally out of control on the M91. Sideways, tailwalking you name it. Very easy choice to swap to the CA 47. Even still I was overpowered and spinning out on the run.

Good to be scared every now and then.

Nice company in Mark and JJ. Thanks for the tips on setting up my gear (and career)

Melville Beach,  - 118L/7m  then 96L/ 6m

It was not very strong when I arrived so rigged 7m. By the time I was ready, it went balistic but I was too lazy to change, so I went in and suffered the consequences.  Felt like a kiter for a while as the gear would end up flying.

Somehow arrived back in one piece and went smaller. 
Jinxed it for everyone, as the wind subdued somewhat.The gusts were unreal and it was very physical today.

Surprised to get to 28 knots on this wreck FSW board.  Not the most pleasant session at all.

Liptons first. Started out completely overdone tailwalking everywhere. Couldn't even start a bear away in the normal wind, let alone the gusts. A day for all the big fellas today. I wish I weighed 90+kg. No wait......I don't Tongue out Had one 38 but super dangerous. Went in for a break and then the wind backed off so called it. I left a little while afterwards and went to safety bay instead. Catching weed on every run there with the tribal, so eventually called it a day.

Liptons, nice tea party. KA 5.5 race and CA Speed (kermit). Great day out but pretty wild at times. First proper sail with the 5.5, very nice (I didnt notice it except for choosing to "stand up" or keep the power down) so it must have been working well. Pretty busy with watching the water in front I guess.

Nice session on home turf with JJ and Chris. Some real bullets coming through.

Squeaked a 40.1 display but obviously peaky.

Nice one Mark! Lunny was needing some good backup. Jake was doing his best when I left Liptons.

Well done, Tim! Very challenging conditions there today and you with a big sail up. With a bit of coaching I can see you getting 40+ on the right day.

Whoo hoo Lunny! That hardly got downgraded at all. AWESOME!!! A huge increase in PB, and very courageousin today's conditions. A BIG increase in our 2 sec. Thanks guys! Thanks also for the nm - you've given me a bean - (until Jake or someone else posts better). JJ - we could have used one of your awesome nauti's today. You are getting tired of flat water? Well there wasn't any today!

Jeff- Penance done. A big effort in going out again when most were leaving.

Ballistic Craig, wish I had been watching but was a bit busy at the time. Thats great it didnt get rounded down much at all! I dont think there was any wimping out going on in that run.

Sorry I didnt catch up Tim, I was in the overflow carpark Smile and got there late. Nice to say hi to the loclas, I thought they had taken up bird watching. You could tell how wild it was by the number of people leaving while it was still windy. The old packup before an injury made a lot of sense.

Top team turnout today, and at least one more still to post.

Well done to everybody who sailed (in trying conditions) today, especially those who scored PBs and those who earned jellybeans by advancing the team score.

Mostly, thanks for your excellent company and support.

 

Jake, Safety Bay would have been even wilder wouldn't it?

Mistral SL91 are the new speed board. Anyone want to buy mine?

Anita, it was. Out in the swell it was a washing machine, gybing was pretty tough. Super hard to pick out a swell from the chop. I managed 90 minutes there on the 5.7, but then ran out of patience with the weed - it was everywhere!!
