Great day.  Early start with Sam getting there at 7am.  Wind was 15 - 20 and w / sw perfect direction for the top at boggy.  Took the 102 as it didn't quite seem strong enough for tb58.  1st time on the 2011 5.8 ka koncept - "another brilliant sail".  Sailed for an hour and it picked up so i went back for the tb58. 

At the shore ready to get on and something painfully stung me right between my toes ouch:-(  Sam thought is was a yabbie or shrimp - not sure.  Sailed back up the top and unfortunately the wind had swung to the south and chopped the water up.  It  was blowing 18 - 25 knots.  No flat water but great fun squirting into the chop.  Was interesting headed back to shore in the chop:-)

Off the water at 2pm as the wind cracked to 25 - 30 and the water churned up like a washing machine.  Home in time for a bucks show but all night found it hard to walk with my bite.  Off to emergency at 2.30 Sunday morning to find i have infected foot and 3 lots of antibiotics to take and also had a tetanus shot.  Only 1 hour in emergency so pretty happy!

All in all an action packed day but well worth it:-) 

Exocet tb58 / 2011 5.8 ka koncept and 29cm s07 select.

Boggy lake - 18 - 25 knots.

Lake George from the 5 mile drift, S 20 to 30.

F2 stoke 11, 4.7 ezzy wave, 30 select weedie.

had to bloody work today got on the water at 4 and had to be out to tea at 7 so just a quick blast.

was going to go out in the surf so only took the wave sails, but a mate turned up who haden't sailed for 8 months and wanted to go out the lake, it was smoking out the lake running constant 25 with the gusts to 30 and found a fantastic flat weed section upwind near packers point, wish I had the slalom gear, still 29 on the wave sail was cool. was good to have james back out sailing and keen to sail all summer.

hope you recover Carl..

Thanks Jimbob.  Good to see your getting on the water.  Looking forward to coming down there again for some 25 - 30 knot actionSmile.  Might try and come for a couple of days in January!
