Happy we decided, albeit a bit late, to make the treck down to Albany. Wind was solid when I hit the water but was gradually fading and tide was also dropping making the weed a bit less forgiving. Was worried about running out of light but in the end I ran out of wind first. First attempt at the hour I had to stop a few times to remove some weed, second attempt I let go of the boom mid jybe and had to fetch the rig, third attempt I ran out of wind. Great to see Boz, Lunny and Woody all have great sessions and cheers to Lunny and Woody for waiting around until I drifted back in.

Invasion, more blater, Woody, Lunny, Andrew, Bem and a lonesome Shane, Fangy you let the team down. More Later

Didn't plan on going down but with all the txting last night between the guys thought I better go and cancel the appointment I had today. Great location great bunch of guys to have a awesome session, Thanks Morts for the sacrafice you did say it would be goodLaughing Watch played up this morning constantly searching for a GPS signal while sailing so lost a few k's and then the watch ran out of juice on the last NM runSurprised 

Cut short the hour again this time by 4 minutes, got to get my act together might try Liptons on MondayLaughing

Great watching everyone sending it down the strip, great to catch up with Shane, he did try to put the gate up Fangy but he was overwhelmed by the Peskys.

Phew made it home, what an awesome day it was, a good comfy breeze with some great company.

Got a few broken bits. Harness hook, a few battens and a little chunk out of the board and thumb. Something fishy decided to stop me rather abruptly.

Good to catch up with Shane and meet Gary who kindly slapped a few bandaids on my thumb. Come to think of it the Albanites probably dont like human blood dripping in their playground. I'm sure theres some big greycoats out the back.

Awesome adventure and look forward to the next one.

Well this has been an interest few days. Just managed to retrieve the data from the Locosys GPS60 with Flatchat and was only minutes from starting the Van to crush the watch for failing to upload my second session yesterday. Took the back off and left in sun for 10mins which did the trick then connected to hear the connection sound.Laughing Cheers Tim for the help and I was almost convinced to pack the watch in rice for 48 hours to remove the moisture from the watch. Looks like Jules gets to cook her fried rice tonight!

Anyway left yesterdat at 3.30am and arrived to see a sail in the distance at 8.30am. Who could that be...Boz of course after saying No to Albany hours earlier! Lunny and Tailwind arrived shortly after to accompany Boz in the 18-20 knots. I was off horseriding with may patient daughter Sophia who agreed to accompany her dad 450km to Albany for the day. Hit the water at noon to join the local Shane and the pinnas out in the smooth. Tried the Manta 59 with the 6.4 Vapor and CLDelta 18. Felt good but not that quick so opted to try the new 61 Manta. What a combination. The most comfortable combination I have used. Couldnt get enough and tried for what I hoped would be an hour. A couple of stacks and jumped off to check how much longer were the obsticals in the hour. Was curious on the results so came in to load the data. Was happy so went out just to try some alphas and a few more naughtys. Couldnt upload the second session as the watch took in water. Anyway, one of the best days at Albany and a joy sharing the experiece with Lunny, Andrew and Ben who arrived better late than never and who stayed out to past sunset just to make the most of it. 

Congrats Boz on a top session with the 3pbs and Andrew on your pb. Lunny and Ben great sessions and great day guys. See you again soon Shane.

Fantastic guys!!!! Big congrats.

 

Mark, apart from letting the battery run down, the only other way is to disconect the battery. That's a pain, I'd let it run down, should only take an hour or so. There's a chance you could be disappointed withthe alpha though. The watch calculates it differently to all the other software. It depends how close you were to the 50m separation. If you were well inside, it won't be a problem, but if you were around 48m there could be a problem. We've seen up to 2m difference in the watches calculation of separation and all the other software.

To dry it out put it in a warm dry place with a couple of buttons clamped open. But if you've got salt water in there, eventually it will corode the contacts, and you will have to pull it apart and clean it.

And you'll probably have to dry it out before recharging. Good luck mate!

Lunny where did you go whack on the fishy?  Shane & I have both clipped something at the Kiters end in the last week or so.

 

From your tracks it looks like the tide wasn't high enough to do full runs for the hour.

Lunny, did your mishap cause you to stop early? Unusual to see you so far behind Boz in km, although I do know he started first.

Congratulations on the distance PB Tailwind, and 3 second best scores. Could easily have been 4 PBs there.

Anita, too many critters on the road so 4pm finish was pushing it for the drive back home, i started 1.5hrs before the lunny, we both hit something as well, mine just out of the carpark launch about 400m out, next big easterlie kenny you gotto come down, 18-21 Delta worked well just couldn't get a proper start at the top on the NM too much week/shallow but the run all the way to the sandbankwas possible. Bit dissapointed that I didn't go for another 5 minutes on the Hr I was mucking about at the begining of the hour forgot to take that into account then stopped to check the watch 10 minutes before the end, ah well what could have beenLaughing

basics for a good hour -

1. sail without stopping for longer than an hour - 

2. don't guess the time, use your watch. An hour seems so much longer than it really is when you are sailing non stop.

3. start timing the hour after you have made all your tuning adjustments

4. don't fall in during the hour

5. don't stop to chat

6. don't stop to check your watch

7. sail fast and avoid upwind legs

If you have a GW60, you can set the hour, the screen goes into reverse at the end of it. Trouble is if the watch is wet when you hit the reset button you could end up with Woody's problem.

Boz

That's the trouble with the watch those buttons, plus I'm just lazy normally don't plan the hour I just keep sailing and then decide I'll go for it, will have to get serious about it, thought I got it right yesterday apparantly notLaughing

Yikes Lunny that sounds like a very sudden and scary stop! That's the problem with sailing with Boz, you just never know if you are going to get hit with some stray Boznium, he sprays it around like it's closing time in the Pub loo.Laughing

I might have upset it a little as this is what i saw up the Kiters end. I'm sure it was the same fish.

 

 

Ahh maybe thats why Boz started at sunrise...to plant Boznium traps all over the place. It wasnt supposed to get me Boz.Smile

Don't worry Lunny I got caught by my own trap as well, Mark I had the same probloem with the first watch, trouble is it died after about a mointh afterwards, water through the seal. Best thing for the watches is what Fangy does and sails slowly no strain on the watch if you do come off, I'm sure thats why Fangy potters around his grassy patchLaughing 

Decrepit

HMMM, I didn't put that very well did I!

No you clamp them in, I used a g-clamp with plastic lined jaws, think I managed to get 3 buttons.

 

Mark this is probably the worst problem with the GW60. When the button is pressed, it allows the watch to breath, if there's a lower pressure in than out, it will suck in the water trapped behind the buttons. It doesn't need very much to cause major problems.

Oh ouch, I just got whipped with cooked lettuce again. Laughing

Just for the record I don't have a watch, just crayons, a sharpener and screen cleaner. ( The crayons are made by an off-shoot company of Garmin, so they are tots legit) KISS at its best.

Woody. Glad you could recover that data and to see your results are all legit now.

Improved in all but the hour and alpha. sensational results!

You must be a little disappointed that the  screen alpha did not count, but you still scored a PB.

That would have been an amazing hour without the offs...

Cheers to your little girl for playing along and etting up at 3.30 am!

Top session Mark, that new 61 Manta was amazing even with the delta was impressed how much get up and go it had, rekon you'll be happy when the wind boots in proper. Big congrats to Andrew knocking up the k's, and yep came to my senses not to miss another epic session, lots of big grins at the end of the day by an awesome crew. Defo another road trip before the end of the year on the next EasterlieLaughing

Speaking of problems with teh GW60, after reviewing my tracks there are a few drop outs where no speed was recorded and some dead straight lines without any data plots recorded. This is the first time I've seen no speed displayed on the watch mid session. Don't think it would've affected the results much although I aborted a naughty when I checked the watch.

Woody, Glad you were able to dry the watch out. I was going to drop by tonight and see if I could have a look at the watch. I highly recommend getting a waterproof pouch like an aquapack and put your watch in there. After damaging one watch already I use an aquapack now.

Kenny

Cannonball, I checked your Albany track and there are a few gaps in the tracks. Didnt notice a gap in your 22knot hour or NM though. Dan had a similar problem with gaps in his tracks. i think we concluded that it was an issue with a drop out in signal to satellites for some reason. Should probably keep an eye on it. 

Boz

Ben/Kenny had the same issue in the first hour, not registering speed, I checked tracks quite a few gaps considering I didn’t stop. Concerning if you have just gone for a hour and not checked.
