Our first sail on the TI with a bit of wind at 10-15 knots! No real idea of what speed we reached in the gusts, but in the smooth waters of the Hastings River at Port Macquarie, my guess is somewhere around 8-10 knots. Regardless, it was totally awesome, and my son Kobi's eyes were bugging out when the spray first started really flying!

Max, great sailing -- loved your camera angle -- and music.

It sounds like you were possibly hitting the stops with your Mirage Drive -- if so, you might try adjusting the pedals forward one notch. 8)

Thanks Roadrunner!

Yes, they are hitting the stops... I'll try moving them from 4 to 5, and see how it feels!

Mate, that's just Yella Fever talkin. He didn't even put his sail in the wind..

Aside from the fact that he could TOW a TI an still pass one, you win hands down with that big Hobie grin and that great father/son moment.

All without any $100K yacht payments!

Thanks for posting it.

G'day NOHUHU, it's the 'Yella Terra' going for it, can't wait till I'm up to speed, and get offshore for a bit of wild action! 8)
