44kt 10s is a pb, just couldnt get the extra runs, it got v windy and alittle dicey, as i got tired and that was that.

Simmer SD40, evo XI 5.2, Z delta 19, 9kg lead.

First time at Kirby.... A lot of walking though...

Thought the conditions would improve so was saving myself for later. Later never happened as wind went too broad. Testing to many changes at once...so a good session but had a lot of potential to be better. 

Haha, my shortest speed session ever. On the first run, my ruptured patellar in the right knee was hurting in the rolling chop and I just didn't feel safe, so opted to do just a few runs a finish early. Good turn out of UK speedies, Jim flying as usual and Scott had a great success on his first trip to WK. I think a few PB's where earned today, well done to every one who got them. Was fun. 

Second trip to West Kirby within a week, after a 5 years absence! This was a solid session and a proper chance to feel some decent speed again. It was also fun to do the road trip with Scotty Stallman for his first real speed session. Great to see fellow speedies sailing at speed along the wall. Such a great spot. Well worth the 5 hour drive!

Another Epic Day! Great Turnout, Lots of Speedies

 

Wow another one of thoses learning curve days,  Rig sail up perfecly, sand down fin to get flush, oh dear, sanded the bottom as did not know about sanding the ends, school boy error, sanded it and sanded it and sanded it and still not getting lower, put in tighten up and back bolt rips out fin insert, shit, so took a risk and had first two- three runs down wall, made me very nervous as fin now also had alot of side to side movement as only being held in with one bolt so could pull back part fin out, then on way back and still worring about fin got pulled into sail and put knee though second panel, well game over as no other small sails or small fins to used,  Dam it, this could, would have been my fastest ever day, lots of speed sailers here today so good to see everyone. as always, better luck neck time.

Great day! Acheived my target of 45 knot peak! 45.66 peak, 45.2 on the 2sec. Added a bit more weight today, maybe 3-4 kgs and it helps loads. Also learnng to froth less and be patient. One run when I couldn't wait to get down the wall so went anyway, but it wasn't anywhere near windy enough with a 39knot peak. Had my first big crash too, full bouncing bomb with limbs flailing evverywhere. Shame nobody saw it or caught it on film! Great to see everybody out, and great to see all flying. Scotty Stallman was sailor of the day for me, so quick from the off and his first trip to West Kirberitz. Hope Joe is back out again soon, two big crashes and a snapped mast on his last putting an end to his day.

A great day at West Kirkby after a long break
