Sandy Point, Vic

 

It looked like it was going to be a Classic Sandy Point speed day, and that was pretty right. Various forecast models has it West (270) to WSW (250) early morning and almost all said 260-250 WSW sometime early arvo. Pretty much what happened. Wind was WNW to West all morning and then went West to WSW to around miday, but swinging back and forth with squalls. I arrive at the beach at about midday and took my time rigging.  Just as I finished Gary (Gaz) from the FNQ mob turned up. Whooohoo. Not on my own anymore! Laughing

I waited for a swing in the wind and finally had a run. Good angle but only about 50% lit, for a 38 peak.

Did another almost straight away and got on a small squall. What a difference a bit more wind makes! This one was my best run of the day, and I still only felt about 80% lit. 

I walked back during the post squall Lull and stood around for quite a while waiting for another squall and wind swing. It had been down to 12 degree overnight and was still in the mid to high teens so I had worn the 4/3 steamer as I thought I might be standing around a lot waiting. I was right and it was perfect! Just on an hour later the wind swung to 255 again and some squalls appeared. I did 5 more runs and pretty good conditions and then it eased again. A couple more 40's and some 39's. Just not quite enough wind for my gear. 

I waited for another half hour and had 4 more runs but by then, although the angle was great, the wind was dying.

Great got get out again and have a blast. Just a bit less wind then suggested by the forecasts but very satifying nonetheless. Laughing

Very nice to have Gaz to sail with! Cool
