got the call Steve and Geoff were trying the river so had to go and suport them. Even though there was zero wind anywhere but Steve told me it was blowing 20 and look at Maitland. yep maitland was blowing 30 knots. crazy the hunter valley efect.

It was very gusty and hard work but so flat when it was up near high tide. it did  changed when tide went low it was gustier and no where near as good. I also hit ground in the midle found out there is a sand bar when it gets low.

The potential is limitless in top speed but the best spot is only accessable by boat it will be heaps better there but must be on high tide.

Peelie has been a bit crowded lately so good to see that everyone left it all to me today. ERS2, 7m, 17 muf. A good half hour or so.

Great to sail somewhere new but the conditions were as difficult as I've sailed. You would think the river location and flatness of the landscape would allow super clean air but it was the opposite. 10 X gustier than Teralba and choppy if you were in the wrong spot, which I almost always was. I must have fallen in the water 20 times and in the process went through my 6.3 lower panel. Bah! Don't know if I will be rushing back, but it was kind of fun. With Lyds and Byron.

It was good to finally try the river and you smashed us Byron. I might give it another go in a NW on high tide
