Short but great session. I was talking to Hardas before going out, told him this will be my 2nd sail since August, he said gee Bob will you be fit enough. Yeh mate piece of cake, in Tassie I did 54 walks in 4 months and climbed every mountain, I'm a machine. Bugger I was kidding myself, it only took a few runs and my arms were shot, one of my last runs I lost feeling in my arm while going for it in the smooth, shit no strength to pull or turn up, ended up doing some gold medal gymnastics. Went in for a nice long break to rest arm, went out again but water level had dropped mobs so I just couldn't get going through the weed, once deeper all good. Turned around, wind's great, off I go, as I'm flying through the weed doing what felt like 50 easy knots my arm went dead again, lost my grip and did the old skipping stone on my arse. Time to give it away but shit was it hard to get through the weed, I'm lucky as my legs at least were up for it not like my arms. Got my peak on that run, oh what could have been ha.

Butttttt what a great session, caught up with old friends and met up with some great new faces and share their PB happy days. I've only sailed twice in months, the last time was a top 5 2sec and 5x10 and again today, got to be happy with that. My gear felt so good, loving every bit of it Cool

Lots of blah blah but it's what we do in my mob Laughing

CA SL87, 27 Tribal WS, 5.8 Koncept and a rubber for protection.

Lake George magic.  Quick pitstop heading for Adelaide.  Went out w 6.3m hit 41.3kts on my first run always wanted to do that, certainly takes the pressure off for the rest of the session.  Next run 40.9kts.  Next 2 runs wind picks up and I can barely hold the sail up getting lifted onto my toes, so went in and changed to 5.9m.  Best speeds on this.  Had 7 or 8 runs in the 41's, the rest 40's and 39's.  Even with the 5.9m felt getting lifted onto my toes.  Feel today I was at the limits of my skills, and set-ups, lot more to learn about this sport.  More later back on the road

That felt the fastest I've ever sailed, probably stronger than any seabreeze I've sailed in WA, I was sailing in the flattest water which had weed standing a couple of cm under the water so there was definitely drag, but I didn't have the guts to sail where it was deeper as the chop was higher and I felt on the edge of control as it was.  I don't think I am currently able to sail much faster than that.  I'm not sure I've got the energy or inclination to put in the effort to get to the next level.  I'd have to plonk myself in Lake George for about 2 months and hope for a windy season and good lake conditions If I wanted to get to the next level and at this stage I'm not prepared or able to do that.  I feel quietly content, and will try and focus on enjoying windsurfing more and worrying less about numbers.

In motel Adelaide

Gear : Mistral Speed 95/55 TR16 6.3m  TRXI 5.9m  Pepeweed 20/48

Edit: Forgot to add did my fastest 10 sec run ever at 40.84, which is probably why today felt the fastest I've ever sailed, Oh to sail in these conditions regularlySurprised

Made the most of a single sail selection from non-planing to being blown out in the one session:-) Changed all foot straps x2 holes back on Falcon and still not finding the setup right. More tinkering needed.
