Evans Bay (Kio Bay), Wellington
Windsurfing: Freestyle
8 pm - 9 am Wednesday. February 3. 2010
my rating 4 star rating
Wind Direction: SW Wind Strength: powered   using 5.6 - 6.0m sail. Swell Direction: Swell Size: nonexistent Tide: High - Rising.

First freestyle sail in about a month. Which for this time of year is unheard of. First half of the session I was sailing around feeling like I was dragging a dead dog behind me. Board felt dead and sail felt completely gutless. Eventually came in to see whether it was just the transition from weeks of sailing the 4.0 to the 5.7, or something was wrong with the gear.

Checked for the dead dog . . no dead dog . . then loosened the downhaul and buttoned off the outhaul to get it nice and baggy. Hit the water again and everything just took off. Like a completely different set of gear. the difference was so marked it made me re appreciate the importance of getting it right As it is the difference between a good sail and a crap sail

Did you know the others out there tonight? I found a mast base/tendon from someone.
