Farm Beach, Horse Peninsula, SA, AU

Patrik 145, 8.6 Turbo, 36CM weedy to deal with sand banks and a seabreeze that filled in a bit more then what was forecast.

Wifey thought it would be a good idea to go to a nice beach with not many people about. We ended up at Farm Beach with 8-12kts of wind. Rigged up and headed out for a cruise and some gybing/tacking practice. 

Then the wind filled in nicely and overpowered at the end. The poor old weedy wasn't happy towards the end. It has a funny chop over the shallow bits only small but from different directions.

A nice result for all concerned and I made most of my gybes.
