Slalom sailing at Sandy Beach

Got a good session on slalom gear this afternoon. 7.0 Reflex 3 with iSonic97.

I shot some GoPro video using a ClewView for the first time. I need to work on sailing while looking back at the camera though ;) [1:20 in the video]

2015 Walleye Wagatta

#WalleyeWagatta went great this weekend. Upper 70s air temp Saturday with 10-20 mph wind. Did 3 course races then a long distance on Saturday. On Sunday we were treated to sunny 80 degree air and 15-25+ mph winds. We completed 6 figure-8 slalom races. Some pictures from land Saturday morning are attached.

I raced the Phantom 377 with the Raceboard 9.5 to win 2 of the 3 course races Saturday as well as the long distance race (counts as R4 and R5). I sailed the new Reflex6 7.8 on an iSonic 121L (75cm wide) with a 42 cm Vector Volt2 to win the first four slalom races before the wind started to back off and I had to settle for second place in the last two slalom races. Overall, it was good enough to win the event.

Also, we had great photos taken from the committee boat by Dan Seaborn. Here are the first three pics he sent. I'm attempting a 1-handed laydown jibe. But, it looks more like I'm trying to catch flies. Having my eyes closed probably indicates the small chance of this going well.

New 2015 Severne Gear

Just received shipment of my new 2015 Reflex6 7.8 and 460 SDM90. Can't wait to try this rig! The ice on the lake is really thinning and hopefully will be gone in a week or so.

Also got a new Raceboard 9.5 with 530 Enigma and a 430 Redline to go on my Turbos, and a nice Trident board bag.
