Proper Bay, Port Lincoln, SA, AU

Patrik 145, 7.8 Overdrive and wind that was always going to be dubious in strength and direction. 5-18kts of varying W.

The first hit out with this sail so any spot or wind in the 13-20kt range was going to be good. 

First sail at this spot as well. The wind started at WSW and was supposed to go SW. But instead it went W so down the bay a bit further I ended up. And of course as I finished de-rigging the wind went SW and came in a bit consistant.

The boat ramp where I launched from looks good for SW and down near the pipeline might be better in a W. But there is a rock wall to negotiate.

On the inside there was reasonably flat water but the usual choppy stuff on the outside.

Is Port Lincoln a place associated with Great White Sharks?

Only if you think about them.
