First time at Boombas and plenty of crew already out when I arrived. Good to meet more of the Mandurah Guys and sail with the some other Pinnas. Felt underpowered but comfortable. Really enjoyed the long runs with for the first time in 9 months the shoulder holding out. So cortisone injections do work.

First time here and what a great spot. Was told the tide was too high for the really flat stuff but really comfortable chop. Large turn out for a school day - doesn't anyone work?? Being the first time here, I took the safe option and went quite small with the sail choice. Never really fully powered up but when you haven't sailed for a few weeks, it was probably the right choice. Good to see more pinnas and those nasty Mobsters enjoying a warm sailing day.

Most of us thought there would be a lot of wind, but not so. Nevertheless a few enjoyable gusts on flat water, with plenty of floating around in between.

Well that was different. Far from the best that Boombas can be but some good bullets when there was wind. Tried out Jespers Simmer SCR 7.0 but it was way too powerful for the strong wind so i changed down, and so did the wind. Damn it i grovelled for ages but then it came back just enough for the 5.5.

Showing signs of backing off again we decided to head back, only the wind shut down again so it was quite a long grovel/walk until Kenny kindly came to the rescue with Jonskis floaty board. Thanks KennyLaughing

Ahh finally back to shore but one slight issue of another Craig still out there with no wind and fading light. We decided to grab a couple of floaty boards so i could drag Jonskis mothership behind me to find Windsup. I found him derigged and paddling with around 2.5km to go so it was way quicker to drag him slowly back onboard the mothership. The memorable bit was the storm clouds closing in with some thunder & bolts of lightning way too close for comfort. Not sure the 100% mast it such a good choice with lightning overhead! Nevermind its a smiling moment now we made it out alive.Smile

Probably a good incident to learn from, respect the gear we use and think of potential rescue options.

Great to catch up with plenty of friendly faces.

Boombas-raid by the Pinnas! Not as windy as was expected so was a little underdone on the 5.5. Went for a good hour straight off the bat but the wind dropped to almost nothing at about the 50 minute mark. Grovelled back in with the others when we noticed Lunny stranded near the point. Sailed out with Jonski's 110 board and swapped boards with Lunny and grovelled back in. Cheers Jonski for lending the board. Big ups to Lunny for towing in winsup with all the lightning happening at the end.

Wind is absolutely howling right now. Looks like tomorrow could be the better day.

Boombas with a big team turn-out.

It was windy when I arrived, so I rigged the small combo...90 Gladiator + 6.6 TR7 + 27 Tribal WS.

The breeze backed off and the first hour on this combo was underwhelming.

Came in and upsized to the trusty M112 + 7 TR9 + 33 Tribal WS, which was much better (the breeze also returned).

No real flat water on offer, but smallish chop, and some nice gusts coming through, so I decided to have a crack at an hour.  Awesome potential for a fast hour at this location with long long runs (7 kays) on offer.

Today however the breeze was too inconsistent, so despite some nice runs where I was averaging 25-26K across the breeze, overall it was average, and it shut down completely 50 minutes in, so my hour includes the upwind portion at the start.

Props to Lunny for heading back out late in the day to find another sailor Cool

Left home with Melville water showing 17 - 22. Arrived to find 15kn. Decided to rig big but I had taken the 7.5 out of the car. 6.8 was the biggest I had. I had the odd planing run but mostly it was pleasant chugging along in the warmth and calm.

I had half derigged when Boz turned up and the breeze decided to have another go. Boz was keen to test his new board so I quickly rerigged and went out again for the best run of the day before the wind died again.

Good to catch up with Boz, Ricey and other familiar faces.

Not a top 10 Melville day

Sounds like you guys had dramas after I left.

Great effort by all!

It's certainly not a good place to get stuck way down wind.

Super speed, Lunny! and well done on the rescue effort. It is heartwarming that everyone looks after each other.

Great hour Pointy! It sounds like the wind didn't exactly play ball down there either, otherwise the backup may have been better.

Woody - congrats on 3 PBs and a nm close to 30!
