Inverloch, VIC, AU

Had a play all over the Inlet today and took advantage of the high tide. Had an early start as family needed me home by 2pm , made it by 3pm Wink as the tide and wind just kept me out that little bit longer.

Started with the light wind combo as the wind was a bit on/off and I needed a bit of fitness time with the big gear and bouncy waves. Rain squals made it interesting esp when I couldn't see the beach through the rain. Needed wipers on the Gath.

As the bars came out the wind filled in so it was onto something smaller for some play time. Played on all the bars as some were better with a bit more water and finished the day in the "Kiddy" Pond buzzing the kitters and rounding up a few windsurfers.

Great to see Dougy scoot along after his long rest on the couch while getting better Laughing

Sandy Point. Vic.

 

A classic Sandy Point fun day! 20-25 knots SW to WSW. Winds up and down and swinging with the cloud bands and squalls. Fantastic! Tongue out

We got down the inlet to find the tide out furhter than we had anticipated so straight into rigging. The forecast was calling for 20-30 knots fo we rigged 5.4's, but while we were rigging the wind was down to 15-18 so I rigged the 6.2m as well and went out first on the slalom board. It was great and fully lit for a few runs and I was getting 35kt 2 secs, so I came back to ponder the speed board and 5.4m. The wind was holding but I could not get started at the launch. I walked down to the end of the dunes and got going easy. A couple of runs in the 34's, and the a reasonable gust came through and I got 37.

It was great to be able to sail upwind without undue effort and get lots of runs. The angle and strength of the wind was varying. Sometimes I struggled to sail back, but by watching the clouds I was able to finally latch on to a couple of squalls and was getting faster and faster runs. 37's, 38's, a 39 and finally a 41!

I missed one last really good squall when I tried to water start and the sail got pulled under by the tide. In the couple of minutes it took me to swim the sail around again and waterstart, the wind was gone. It was that critical to catch the small squalls.

Great to catch up with Mat, Peter and Brad again for some fun! I was toasty warm all day which was very nice. Laughing The British sure know how to make a warm wetsuit! 4x3 Gul.

Wind at Yanakie during session. Pretty much exactly what we had i'd say. Nothing over high 20's

Sandy Point Vic, AU.

Day Trip, left Melbourne 11.30am to arrive at 2pm for the low tide.

On arrival WSW 20kts+, rigged and on water at 3pm.

As Andrew said a classic Sandy Point day.

First run - warm up speed 35kts on the dial. Oh Yeah!

The board seemed to max out at this speed, so changed to the the weed fin and got a 37kt peak.

Isonic W54, ReflexR4 6.2m, C3 StingII 30cm, then Techart WSL 22cm.

Well done on the PB's Brad. Cool 

You timed it right for the best wind of the day! By hte time you had to fix your fin I was burnt out and it looked like the wind was dying as well, but you must have agot a few more good runs.

Thanks all. I must just need more wind to break the 40. I was thinking of you Boston when I hit the east bank trying to get upwind, luckily only going slow off the plane, no damage. Yes Andrew the wind stayed in after I changed to the weed fin which felt like less drag. Was the only one on the inlet as the sun was close to going down - was time to sail back to the car park!
