5- 16kts E -ENE Marmong Point, NSW, AU

7.5m Severne GT turbo- RS4 ( 11ltres) - 38cms makani weedie

Few nice 15kt patches so I thought it would be a great day to go to the sand islands..Undecided Bad choice.. Started out nicely powered with c 15kts ..got to Eleebana and it was about 10-12kts then dropped to 5-8kts in the lee of Valentine but I persevered thinking out the other side would be good. It was still 10-12kts on the other side although looked much better over near Coal. I figured I'd be overpowered at Coal and that I should head back in case it died.

Died off Valentine . Not enough to work out where the wind was coming from but I managed to stay upright and the closer I got to Marmong the better it got although it headed me for a while. 

 The best sailing was out the front of Marmong so I had a few nice runs before going in for a nice warm shower and the end of year BBQ.Smile

I could have used a pointer at Marmong but I wanted to try my new Makani weedy. I had a powerbox one that never spun out and  I loved. They've changed the design to make it faster. It's now longer and narrower and I spun out a few times..It could have been pilot error as it was very gusty so maybe I just need to apply the pressure more carefully. I was glad i had it as the further east the worst the weed was.

 

Silly season is upon us..there was a 40' cruiser that had been run up onto the beach into the trees on Valentine by it's drunk captain..Undecided

 Merry Christmas everyone!  I hope it blows and you can get a sail in..Smile
