I love being on holiday!
Mid-week sail at Kyeemah, southern end. I was avoiding the so-called speed strip sandbar in george's river because I wanted to practice my rough water sailing, both speed and gybes. I'm thinking very hard about the Ledge to Lancelin race next year... so need to build up some endurance and nail choppy gybes with big sails!
Two sessions today. First I was going up and down the bay having a great time. Then after a coffee and muffin at the beach side cafe I stuck to a bit of figure 8 slalom with the crowd. The wind had dropped off a bit at this stage, but I was still powered up most of the time. Lulls less than a minute each. About 10 guys out today at various times.
Exoceet RS2 91L, MauiSails TR6, 7.0m2 and 35cm select fin. Sweet setup that was fully capable with various outhaul settings. Broke 30kts in both sessions!

No great speeds today, just fantastic to be out on the water after an unfortunate forced break. Windsurfing is the greatest activity in the world to take all your troubles away.
Felt very comfortable on my Falcon 89 and Koncept 7.5. Also used my new Simmer V-Line boom and was very very impressed. Super stiff for alloy and my hands feel awesome, no fatigue at all.
Water was ridiculously warm and wind was around 10-18 knots at the most.

Beautiful Spot toSail - Meet some guys from Burrum MOB nice Chappies. I should have listened to the Locals.
Rigged to small wind was directly onshore never enough power to get tack upwind and get some bearaways or longer runs.
Ended up the only sail I got up there.
