Had work in morning, so arrived late. Got on the water about 2.30pm. A 6.3m & the SB W49 seemed a good choice at first, but the wind dropped off loads as soon as I got on the water, I must be jinxed. My three fastest runs were on the W49, then switched to the W58 for the rest of the session. Should have rigged a 7m, short session but still fun.

Finally, I got to sail Kirby and it didn't disappoint.

Thanks to Antony for all the helpful advice, very useful on the day, hopefully I will remember it in the future.

Glückwunsch George, von Fuerte aus. Grüße: Günter

Arrived mid afternoon and most were out on 5.4/5.5's but as the wind seemed to be dropping i rigged a 6.3 KA Race on my Mistral Speed 95 to help get me through the lulls and this combo was good for the first couple of runs but then the wind started to drop off after i got in 4 runs, after waiting around luckily the wind picked back up long enough to get in a 5th run for my 10 sec average. I should really have rigged my 7.1 KA Race but with the wind up and down i didn't want to miss getting runs in when the wind was there as you had to wait for a gust coming through to get a run in. I felt a little underfined but when the wind was at its strongest the 25cm Delta was great off the wind and suits the board well, when the wind drops off though the Mistral Speed 95 will need something a little bigger i think with the 6.3

Great to see Chris Bates back on the water after his injury, also good to see Ant Todd making the long trip up from down south, Mark Hayford and Neil Hardwick

Mast Tushingham Speed Pov 460

session after work. wind had died by the time I arrived but still had a good blast. Started out on the the Ray 100 then switched to the Falcon 80. 

 

My foot is still quite painfull going over the chop at speed but getting better all the time

Well done George on your six PR's for the day and for moving into first place in your age group on the British Speed Ladder.

Hello George, I wish I were there. You got a good speed, but if I had been in West Kirby that day probably I would get 40 knots !!!!

I'm afraid I won't be able to probe this in the next 3 months at least. Probably after Chritsmas, but you'll be here in Fuerte by then.

No wind now these days in Fuerteventura. I can sail 20 days more (if windy) before going to the surgeon to repair my shoulder. 

Try to improve your records cause I'll go for you in a few months.....
