Slogfest on the big gear. Water clarity was great. Jumped off and stood on a huge stingray, luckily not the pointy bit. Nearly shat myself.

Sensational afternoon in the "Holloways Smooth" ...and it really was quite smooth today. Some of the nicest sailing conditions had today, warm water which was very blue today, 15knt breeze,  and great company - Kel, Ben and Peter. Plenty of wildlife out wide with schools of bait fish busting up every where. Only thought about what might have been chasing them after i'd hit the beach !!!

Top 10 Day - 125 AHD Diamond, 7.5 T4, 49 S10.

Nice afternoon sail with Billy, Kel & Peter.  Definately more wind today than yesterday - pretty good conditions for Holloway's overall.  Had some nice long runs without lighting up the speed dial.  Just couldn't really get moving today.  Kel and Billy looked to be racking up some km's further out.  

Session was cut a little short when I took a tumble over some swell and put my knee through the bottom of the sail.  Of course it had to be quite a ways out...  So being a bit out of condition (ok, maybe more than a bit) I decided to go back to point with my tail between the legs & call it a day.

I've heard the saying "a sail really hasn't been tested unless it has sail tape".  Let me just say this sail has well and truly been tested!  Consolation is at least I have given this particular sail a flogging over the others leaving them with some more life.

Still very grateful to get some time on the water over the weekend with good company.

Nice day at the beach, 15 to 17 knt easterly with clear skies, first day of any wind for weeks so the swell was almost non-existent.

Happy with the hr off the beach, even though i dropped off the plane on a couple of gybes.

Used Isonic 107, Overdrive R8 7,0 and C3 Sting2 38Cool
