Mistral 91SL Pepe wd 27 TR17 6.3 and TR16 7.0

Forecast was 30 knots, Stroppos measured 31, put 5.5 on mast, took it off and rigged 6.3. Was always 7 metre weather. MNice to be on the water with lots of windsurfers.

Peel Inlet, WA, AU, Quick sail after work at liptons. Wind was offshore and not very strong but nice to be out on the water.

Lake George, SA, AU

SSE 14-28 knots  First 200kms on Fanatic Falcon TE 112-Loft Blade 7m-Lessacher Duo Weed 32cm then JP Speed 54-Koncept 6.2-Techart weed 28cm

Great day for distance and to crack this on my last week of holidays. I've been building up to this and even though pretty average with speed Lake George provides something for anyone! Currently, there is fantastic flat water gybing at both sides with lumpy goodness in between:-) This will be close to my limit or max distance for a 12 hour session at my current speed but if the lake levels drop maybe a 450 km is in the offering for next summer?

On the water at 6.10 am and finished around 6.30 pm. Just a hint of light to start the day. Lightish for first 100 kms then kicked in to being overpowered on the 7m. Came in and debated what board and sail to use, looked windy-ish! Loved the JP Speed 54, very easy on my legs however the wind was cranking and sometimes at my limits with the 6.2m. In retrospect would have been wiser to be on 5.6m, ah well...

Daffy was smoking past me and showing a real master class of sailing skills, speed, gybing. Wow! Jamie also showed and offered his support late in the day. Thanks for that:-)

Used GT-31's (thank you for the long battery life) with the files truncated into x3..... I think I was ripped off 200 metersInnocent

Below is the second 200 kms.

Couldn't resist the Albany forecast, but I had a comitment Tuesday morning, didn't get away till 1130. About 1630 arrived at Lilacs, to an upgraded cottage with hardie on his bed. Too choppy too gusty were his comments, went and had a look at the water and Firie came in with the comment, "No idea what I'm doing out there and the wind's dying off"! Well what to do? I know give it up and hope for smooth water in the morning.

 

That arrived at 0450 with Stroppo banging on my window, yep water looks flat, but it's also cold and very damp. Firie and I decided breakfast was the go, hardie still in bed. Hit the water 0725, with the 5.8 on the 43 with 17cm 50d starboard assy. It was a bit too late all the best speeds had been done by then, should have missed breakfast! By 0815, the little stuff was too little, so changed up to the biggest I'd bought, the 48cm board and 6.2 koncept, with my 20cm 55deg weedy.

Wind hung around till about 0930, which left a few of us stranded at the start of the NM run. Gave up waiting for the next gust at 0942, a lot of body dragging and some upright sailing, saw me back at base at 0957. Straight into Cottage 4's lovely hot shower, then enjoyed a coffe and meal with firie Hardie and Evets at Gourmondies? in town. (One of Evet's favourite haunts, well at least all the staff seemed to know him).

Back at Lilacs, the breaze had come back a bit, so decided to try for as many Ks as I could to help back up PJ. Had a couple of planing runs close to shore but the wind looked stronger out the back, (and it had been stronger there in the earlier sessions) so made my way upwind to the start of the NM run, when hui had me where he wanted me, he flipped the switch off again and I was doing the body drag back to base again, this time it took me 3/4 of an hour to get back, there wasn't much standing on the board. A bit too deep to beach start, not enough wind to water start and board too small to uphaul.

So sorry PJ, gave it my best shot but only a tenth of your distance.

Used the watch data as I have min speed set to "0" on that, the GW52 is set to 2kts min speed, and some of my body dragging was less than 2 kts!

And because it was sail powered, with me connected to it and the board, I'm counting it.

 

Here's my tracks.

Albany, WA, AU

Woke up to a Yowie banging on the front glass door (thanks Strop), I looked out and thought wow that's what a sunrise looks like. Pretended I was still asleep untill Mike started getting his breakfast sorted, oh well got up and looked outside and there was some rigging activity going on but Mike had the right idea.

Wind was lighter, tide was down and water was very smooth, yay. Even though wind was lighter I went smaller sail, I'm loving this 2017 5.8 Koncept. Had a great sail even though I did a bit of dredging around, now I understand what the hype's about. Only downer, I saw the Strop way off in the distance attracting the other windsurfers like moths to a candle, so I head over too. Now that I was about as far from my launch spot as could be the wind died, double drats. It was a long slow dredge and walk back, either high stepping over the weed or trying to water start with 20kg of weed around my ankles. But hey I didn't care, I had a great sail, I can see the potentual and I'll be back.

Enjoyed the company and yacks at Lilac's Cool

Awesome effort PJ. Sailing for nearly 12 hours is a special thing that very few of us have the patience or fitness for. It was great to witness it.😎 I might try something like that again when the lake gets back to its best. Half that time was plenty for me. Felling pretty shattered this morning. 😏

Comments appreciated peopleCool 

Mike great to hear your practicing your body drags, lol!

Location and or long runs help but the hardest part to long distance sailing is nailing planing gybes (they don't need to be fast just planing) and coping with wear and tear to your hands. Gloves and or taping up your fingers may help eg Leucoplast (blue one is waterproof and tough). Only have a couple small blisters and moderate muscle soreness now! The only other non-sailing thing I do to keep a little cardio fitness is 30 mins of Concept 2 rowing and sometimes 5 kg barbells. Highly recommend the rowing as low impact on joints.

I'm glad you saw two of the different faces Lilacs can present Firie. Imagine what it is like when the strong wind combines with the right tide height to give flat water and stronger wind Cool Add to that the summer easterly is more consistent and you can see how some great nuimbers can come from this (sometimes cold) location.
