Great little sail, very shallow in parts and a hell of a lot of boats on the river.
Might have just pipped Stribo will have to wait for his post.
Had fun staying this side of the fleets coming up the river and not falling in during the lulls.
Hats off to the new Captain who ventured into the fray and got through them.
Scotty's foot is pretty badly swollen, hope it improves fats and you get it back in the straps mate.
Hope the rest of the crew had fun in Cervantes.

Futura 122, Tushingham T3 6.5, 39"weedfin,
Got my princess outfit wet doing some Gybe training while everyone was trying their luck in the middle of the river. A little bit fatigued from morning exercise. Going the middle tomorrow. Tide lowest I've seen (ever).

5.9KA Koyote & Naish Titan - Todays sail - nice but shallow - somebody pulled the plug.
Gave myself a chiropractic adjustment trying to gybe with a bit of speed (all I managed was around the front at speed - slightly winded, checked all the bits - of me, not the gear, seemed fine - back on the horse).
Great to be out having fun in the sun with quite a few PSS'ers.

F2 Stoke 115L with 6.6M KA Koncept & 32cm LE Weedy
Chose the weedy for safety as it was a tad shallow today.
Came across a couple of yachts out in the middle of the river, there was so many in a line at one stage you couldn't penetrate the bastards, and the chop, they turn the river into a bloody washing machine.
Spent an hour trying to get upwind to the party boat to see the entertainment but they buggered off just as I got there
Did a big downwinder in pursuit but she was putting her top on as I got close enough, Bugga!!!!!
In hind sight I should have rigged a 7.0M as the wind faded all afternoon.
Good turn out from the crew & a nice afternoons sailing
|Scott (5272km): |
Sorry I didn't sail today Captain, my big fat foot wouldn't fit in the footstrap, I will bring a note from my mum next time
|Darryl (23390km): |
8.4 Street Racer, 135 isonic, never got comfortable today, I am going to have to get my other fins sorted to use with this sail, spent most of the time crabbing sideways.
|Windrider (12353km): |
CR6.7, Sonic85, Falcon28. Gusty, weedy, shallow, but still fun!
|Annika (2359km): |
Fun day at Cervantes. Nice place to sail. Spent a lot of time trying different boards... still hunting for a fun midget sized ocean board.
Quickest was 6.1CR and my trusty Isonic 86 slim... just need to shink it a bit for the windier days (eg 5.1 weather). And maybe add some more V and concave... and maybe round the rails a bit.

Annika for Jesper again. Having some GPS card issues so only missing part of his session. Will try antoher card reader at work.
He sailed the futura 93 and CR 7.0
