NM Heaven

Well the Goolwa - Clayton channel(nicknamed Grundy's after the launch road) is starting to show its potential with all team members who sailed on Saturday getting Nautical Mile PB's. It has also become the premier Australian mile+ venue with Anthony(Hamma) getting the Australian record of 36.79 - he had 3 runs over 36 Knots. Sam also set an Australian 1 Hour record of 27.07 knots.

See the session comments and gear used here:

Well done to all, here are the days PB's (so far...)
Hamma - 36.79 NM (Australian Record!!!)
Chris - 35.99 NM
Choco - 35.61 NM
Sam - 34.43 NM and a 27.07 Hour (Australian Record!!!)
Carl - 33.94 NM
Joe - 31.47 NM and a 22.43 Hour

Add to the PB list Geoff with a 30.37 Peak and 28.48 5x10 Average on wave/freeride gear.

Sessions 09 - Goolwa 8/6

As is usual this time of year, the forecast came through 10 knots less than predicted but that didn't stop some of the crew having a bit of light wind fun.
I caught a bit of footage tailing Carl & Joe. At least the water is flat when it is this light...

I looked at the camera after the run and noticed condensation inside the housing and thought the video would not turn out at all. In the end it is slightly blurred but still shows the action.
