Poonindie, SA, AU

Patrik 145, 7.8 Overdive, 22cm BP FR Delta. Winds ESE-SE 8-12 kts and usual stronger before and after sailing attempt.

 

I took the dog for a drive and a run and this beach looked good for sail. ESE 15kts onshore with nice flat water in the shallows inside the tape weed line.

Raced home grabbed my gear and headed back. Whitecaps out the back disappearing as I rigged. Went for a cruise around. Unrigged had a beer and watched the whitecaps build again.

Missed out big time the next day. Forecast was for ESE 10-15 so I went and played golf. Actual wind 20-25 ESE and constant.

Maybe next time.
