Dnick's Friday Report - Going 30+ knots in Speed Creek

 Friday Speed

Speed Creek, Tauranga
Windsurfing: Speed
1:30 pm - 3 pm yesterday
my rating 5 star rating
Wind Direction: W Wind Strength: maxed   using 6.1 - 6.5m sail. Swell Direction: Swell Size: nonexistent Tide: Low - Rising.
CA SL58, warp 6.4, MFC 34 course slalom
A planned low tide session actually worked. Wind was more WSW to start. Rob was on the creek early on a 5.8 x-15 as it was really honking 33-35knots.
By the time Darryl and I hit the water it had back off to under 30.
Good speed runs, if a little short compared to yesterdays airport sesh.
Some nice flat out gybes made life interesting laying it down at 30knts on a flat as channel.
Darryl didn't break any gear today
Craig showed up late as it went back west and he was flying on 6.4, in 35+ knts, clocking 34.9knts max, but Rob had the speed of the sesh with a 35. something, a PB for him....still waiting on the C3 Sting to arrive...
