JP Slalom 92 KAR 6.3 BP WS34

Damn, should have gone to Budgie. Looked awesome on arrival so got the small gear out but the easterly just seemed to be dying as it hit the hot air on land. Some OK gusts but they few and far between. Really pleased with modest increase on my alpha as I wasn't very quick today.

exocet RS2 slalom, Maui TR11 6.6, BP18 kestral

Great to finaly get some wind in a ne at Budgi it is special when it happens so flat just unreal.

PB on the slalom board top speed with a few runs over 40 very happy with that.

alpha I tried many times but realy strugled to come out with any wind as it was very gusty. so alpha potensial is huge if it blows strong NE.

For people useing the BP kestral I found I had to put mast track all the way back its center of efort is diferent and it made 2 knots diference.

Great sailing with everyone.

Great day at Budgie. FF79 and 6.6m. But most of the day on F2 Speed board, which was a mistake because it wasn't really that strong.

mistral sl91, 6.2 reflex, 18 kestral.

great day at peel st, was a bit light first off ppl were coming in with 7m, even sue had a 7m up.

2nd time with the kestral think i had the uni a bit to far back was spining out a bit this time.

plenty of wind for the 6.2, a bit more constant would hav been better but im not compaining.

heaps there 15 20 guys & girls. so flat up a bit higher when i was up there.

carnt get up wind as gd as others though.

Funny arvo, sounded, looked & felt like the best NE of the year but couldn't get the good bearaways. Unusually gusty, came in early to keep some energy for the FW regatta tomorrow, probably a mistake. RS1, 6.6, 17MUF.

15-24kts ENE - NE Peel st Budgewoi Lake, NSW, AU

7m OD - 79ltre FF- 19 delta

6m OD - 79ltre- 19 delta

6m OD - 89FF - 19 delta

 Yay a distance PB by a bees dick..( pinched Dezza's line..Wink) If the iwind hadn't died I could have got more..

I took an hr to get on the water at first due to rigging issues with adjustable outhaul clamp coming off and inhaul jamming so that ate into any distance time.

 Initially I wanted to improve on my distance and hr but once on the water I decided 2 sec was the go. Stuffed up on an hr ( didn't drop a gybe and only stoped once for a drink) by not having a watch and coming in to change down at the 50min mark Undecided. Got to get another waterproof watch.

I need a 6.6m ( coming from Vic) had to decide between hanging on with the 7m or underpowered with a 6m. Put the 7m on even though bigger guys were going out with one and flying. I could see there were lulls though so crossed fingers and went out.7m was ok! Tiring and the big rig on the little board made it hard to get upwind as well as I'd like but kept me going through the lulls. Got 33.18 early on.

 Followed the guys for once and found the best area to get flatwater and possible gusts. Bit hard to get as high up as them.Very happy with my gybing. Back to pre injury standard. A lot of good fast planing gybes and even consistently got them out in the choppier section with a few fully planing ones. Smile

Now I need to finetune and get the front arm straight , rig further away from my body and get pulled forward..Surprised

Getting tired with the 7m and figured I'd got my decent speed for the day so I came in and rigged the 6m. The wind had come in and this was now a great size with some good gusts ( 33.37 with this combo).

 By the time it really came in I was pretty stuffed.

I had a bad headache ( probably from being a bit tense in my upper body) . I pushed on for a while because you don't get days like that at Budgy very often but came in. Saw I had a decent distance on the GPs so decided to up it a bit . Wind was getting iffy so went out on the 89ltre Falcon. Good wind in the chop but buggerall in the flats.

Wasn't expecting a PB..would have pushed more if I'd known. Happy with that as the previous was at LG with long runs and consistent winds. This with shorter runs and heaps of gybes was more of a challenge.

Heaps out! Lots of newbie youngens ( even a girl - go girl! ), Frothie , Mick , Milsy , Pete , Mat , Paul , Tibor , Bruce, Rus , Michael , Andrew x 2, Byron , Steve , + heaps more.

 Great to see Michael and Ris fanging around together. They both looked great and we could tell Mick was going to get  pBs as he looked fast!

 Stitched hand and ankle handled sailing ok but the ankle has been giving sharp stabbing pains since the sail. Seeing the specialist in 3 weeks so will hopefully find out whats going on. I suppose it's only the 8 month mark though..

 Great fun sailing along with a disposable glove on and a finger rips off then another pulls longer and gets stuck in your harness lines..YellUndecided

 Heat wave conditions - driving home in my aircon audio capsule I noticed it was 32 degrees all the way to near morriset then it jumped to  39-40 degrees. The NW obviously persisted. Record 30 degrees overnight - Thanks god for air con! Bring on some rain!

 

 That's a PB 2 sec for a NE at Budgy +Distance.

Big day out, Sue. Some very fine numbers there. It will take me some time to catch you on the alpha - if ever! Might be a while before I manage 33 knots again too.

Congratulations on the distance PB.

Thanks everyone. Anita I seem to get 33kts + a lot these days but still hanging for 35kts +. My PB 2 sec was on the slalom board so I'm waiting till I finally get the speedboard in flatwater with some decent wind and catch that elusive gust..Undecided

Great stuff Mick - You were looking good. Great alpha Byron! Congrats Tony on the hr.

 Just noticed the 5 x 10 + alpha are in my top 5 ..+ a PB so a great day!

Sue, I got a string of 33's before I got my 35. I was struggling to get over 34 if you remember. I'm sure it won't be long for you.
