I had a great day sailing yesterday on my annual holiday at a place called Denham ,nor west Oz ,shark bay .
most days we have been doing 3 sailing sessions a day ,and the wind came up to 26-29 knots ,i don't have a too many small sails ,but it was a treat to go out on my 2008 north natural 5,0 and do over 35 knots (65.42 kms)
I just brought this second hand 93 Patrik ,off buz in gero on the way up ,it was a still a bit lumpy ,hope to go better
but pretty happy to finally get over 35 knots ,my fastest very
Gday Dude! You got your goal in the first week. Awesome!! Just looking at harness lines. Is that front hand heavy?
I Know mate ...surprised me too watching the vid ,but i was running right off the wind ,and thats what felt normal and safe .
when running back up wind ,hands went back to equal spacing .
Tardy you in paradise! Looking forward to a vid of sailing the great Lagoon.Enjoy.
We did have a few , lighter wind days 14-18 knots so pack a 7.0 if your coming up here , I had 116 manta which worked a treat , 8 days of sailing everyday, averaged 6 hours a day , sore visited the hot pools , just 15 minutes drive away to sooth the body
We saw Dugongs, turtles,manta rays and a couple of small sharks ,
