Stansbury, SA, AU FF102, GPS 6.6, 28 choco weedy

Forecast 10 knots but it was stronger than that in Minlaton. Didn't call Tricky 'cause 10 knots is sh#t, and not worth bothering him for that. 

Got there and it was 15-20 North so rigged the big gear, wanted some speed on the bearaways so used the Choco 28 weedy. Gusty but fun for half an hour or so then the change hit and had some fast bearaways on the Westerly heading straight out on the flat spit. Wow, couple more and then the dust storm hit and it picked up to 30 knots. I was down in the water with my back to the wind waiting for the dust to dissapear and then it went SW and the show was over. Walked some and caught a light breeze back in. Not many Ks but a fun packed hourSmile
