0-20kts NW then 25-30kts WNW Teralba, NSW, AU

7.5m GT Turbo - Rs4 ( 111ltres) - 39cms C3 sting pointer

 then 5.7m gator - Rs4 - 36cm drake pointer

I didn't enjoy the first bit with the big kit. When the gusts hit I was worried about being thrown over the front so I was sailing very defensively. Got the 2sec then.

After an hr or so I decided to rig down to the freeride gator. It's actually a good combo for 5-23kts odd . It doesn't have the grunt of the cammed sails but it's  easy to control and much lighter and I had some fun runs before it turned ballastic..Frown

 I was over the other side and managed to get in near the sailing club. Getting back was 'interesting". Undecided

 I had trouble waterstarting as I was so overpowered and wasn't game to sail hooked in which meant the board was trying to fly off into the air..Undecided. Then I spunout and sailed sideways for 500m before falling in. I finally got in amongst the boats and started to swim in but it mellowed enough to risk sailing the last little bit..

Well at least I was on the right side of the lake..Undecided

 Tried to walk back down the shore but I was in a gusty lee and too much hassle so I just left the board on the shore and walked back to get the car.

 It would have been ideal for a 4m or smaller sail  on the 85ltre WT , there was decent size chop everywhere.. It seemed to only last about 30mins.

 Sunny and nice to be on the water. I hadn't given it any thought but Gert said the water runoff from the rain had sewerage in it..ugh! I took in a few mouthfuls..Foot in mouth

 James, Tony , John ,and a few others  at first  then heaps of foilers ( before it hit) , wind thingies , Lyds made a short appearance and had a hell of a ride back to Belmont. Gert and lots of others later.
