  • Sailed on Saturday, Need Some Technique Help!

    Mon, 25 May 2015 17:59:28 +0800


    s, need tome help/advice on why I couldn't sail upwind on Saturday. I was sailing on Saturday arvo at RQ beach (Manly) and a couple times I pointed too far downwind, so I tried to head upwind to correct, and kind of stalled, and ended up drifting sidways. I ended up tacking, heading back out the other way and then coming back in and made sure this time I didn't point to far down wind to get back to the beach. Context; Winds were decent 17-25 or so knots (I guess?) I use a Mistral One Design raceboard (as in my avatar). Centreboard was up when reaching/heading downwind.

  • Windsurfing Learning Curve

I am 105k - purchased a 200l mistral pacifico with a dodgy retro 4.5m sail and rig, was enough to get me going - I did purchase a new Severne 6m synergy this week from Simon at Board Crazy and have been out once so far - wow what a difference. Not sure if it my imagination but it seemed to be more forgiving - or maybe I am getting better perhaps a bit of both. Took it to the train and had a really good run to the sand bank and back a few times. Arms are canning now though next it has to be the harness. Do feel as though I have progressed but soooooo much more to learn. The Windsurfin... >>
