Another awesome La franqui session, more out today so I'm going to be at the tail end but I'm chuffed with my results and will keep pushing.

I spent the first hour getting the 5.5 dialled in, its the first time I've used it for more than a short sail so getting used to such a small sail took some getting used to, initial settings proved too much DH and not enough OH, once that was sorted my initial speeds on the 78 were the smae as yesterdays top and they started to improve, its also the first time on the 78 and thank god it sails like the 95 so very very similar.

I started hitting 39knts and was a bit stuck before making some adjustmensts to the base position which gained me a bit more but really I should have changed down to the Speed 63.

There were 7 or 8 out and a couple of bathers to add to the interest, Jacques was killing it looking so smooth and I expect to see some good speeds from Ian and Ant as well.

I did have a big 36/37 knot stack when I hit a sandbar and have a bit of sail damage that is now taped up hopefully for a slightly squarer course tomorrow as it was quite deep today so the water was choppy and the back upwind was hard work so I saved my energy and walked most of the time :(
