Boggy Lake, SA, AU: On water at noon with wave gear for 30min. Wind to high for my slalom gear. Came in and rigged slalom gear and spent the rest of the time on that. It was ok I suppose. A bit of exercise. This place is an anticlimatx compared to Stansbury.

Wind was measured as 25-35 on the bank at 3 mile so I went out on speed kit with delusions of PB's! - Creeper 48, EvoIII 5.5 & Vector 24.  I thought it was going to be another solo session and as I started to walk my gear out I saw Rod(Beachport local) walking out just upwind of me.  He had parked 50m away but I couldn't see or hear him with the bushes and wind.  I had one gusty run and was way oversheeting in the holes so I came in to get the slalom board and Gary showed up from the Pit Crew. It looked like it filled in again so I went out on the speed board again only for it to drop out again.  Back in again for a rig and board change for some cruising action.  Headed out on the 6.1 and Mistral 112 in case it came back but it didn't.  The sail felt more unstable than the day before and I noticed my cross batten had broken and I was finding it hard to gain height so I just cruised back and forth in the middle of the lake for an hour or so with the occasional squirt off the wind near the 3-mile island.  The Tomahawk 27@45 felt better this trip with some new mods - I rounded the leading edge a bit and put a small notch in the trailing edge under the head.

Lake George - West 15-20

Mistral 112 - Avanti M1 6.1 - Tomahawk 27

Nice effort guys.

Tim, great you could have another crack at LG before the end of the season (if there is one)... Gear selection is everything, as is constant wind. You made the most of what you had, and were rewarded with Saturday's session too. Great stuff!

Cheers Chris! A PB or 2 would be nice but I couldn't have done any more than I did except for hitting the water a bit earlier... There is always next year if the lake stays in good healthLaughing

Thanks Chris. My bi-annual at el Bog :). Pity no crew were there. Just me and Mike. Then Christian. Mike and Christian left and then Tom arrived. I was the only one sailing the pocket.
