Boombas: Timid and pathetic is what I felt out there, have become paranoid about breaking bones, no flat water, just different grades of chop.  Best part was the tournout of so many windsurfers, great to see and to catch up with peopleCool

first session back on the main land.

after two weeks of 30-38kts off shore watching the turltes surfing.

rigged a 7m - over powered

rigged a 6.2m - found the balance

top end of the estuary was a sand storm

i was the only one out - rough water

almost ran over the orange pole marker

had a good time - looking forward to a foil session

Boombas with a big mob. I went for the earlier session hoping to catch a decent breeze on the lower tide. I didn't quite get it right and ended up floating around with  Sludge for the first hour. Then Sludge went back around the corner and left me in Boombas with Pat Malone for company. The wind was pretty lacklustre and I only got a couple of nice little runs. I persevered for longer than I probably should have, mainly because it was actually quite pleasant pottering about. But I got caught out by a rather rapid increase in wind strength. In seemingly a blink, the wind picked up to gust into the high twenties and I was a long way from home on the Barge and 7.5. 

As a result of trying to get back to base massively overpowered, I ended up tuckered out and that was just from the freckle clenching moments. I had every intention of rigging something small and heading back out, but then hit a wall of sociable chat and coffee. So, just as I decided I really was done for the day, and de-rigged, the wind immediately dropped back to manageable. Huey dogged me twice in one session.

Regardless, great to catch up with Stretch, Sludge, Cap'n Calm, Swindy, Johnski, Hardie and an absolute Pinvasion of Pinnas, too many to count. A pretty soft session from me in the end, but still put a smile on the dial.

Great catching up with all the crew. 

Got overpowered on the 7m and changed down, Joe read me my last rights as the wind suspended his board against him and my sail choice went down to 5.5

Have to mention Mike that I think you were still alittle tipsy from last night, Falling around in the grass like thatTongue out glad you were okWink.

Maybe more FUN tomorrow,

Well if the wind hadn't arrived we could have had a party, biggest mob I think I've seen at Boombas, Pinnas making up most of the numbers.

And that's what looked like happening for quite a while, Stretch Fangy and slugger, went out to test the water, and were dogging the whole time.

Wind finally arrived just before 12, I had the 6.2 on the 53 with 26cm 45deg ready to go. Started off just right, but by the time I'd reached the end of the 6km  run  and headed back I was getting severly overpowered. Had a couple of short runs to see if it would ease, but didn't happen so went in for lunch.

Everybody else followed and started changing down. I couldn't make up my mind whether to change down or go home, Swindy convinced me not to be a wimp, and rig the 5.0 on the 47 with the 20cm 40/60 weedy. Of course by the time I got back on the water the wind had eased a lot, the previous combo would have been just right! So I dogged around for a while waiting for it to pick back up, which it eventually did. That was much better, the long lull had reduced the chop, and I started enjoying myself. Thanks Roger, glad I listened to you!

Big crew down there today when I arrived and soon got even bigger. Not my best session at Boombas, spinning head, sore hand and a new sail that wouldnt rotate at all. After waiting ages for the wind to arrive it struck prety quickly. Had a few overpowered runs and came in to change down. 

Big restectp to Ross, many would have come in and changed down long before him in them conditions.

After I de rigged the wind died so I pulled the pin to save some for tomorrow.

Speed sailing seems to be all about being in the right place at the right time on the right gear I was none of these today and did more chatting than sailing. Good to catch up with so many even those pesky Pinnas were Ok I guess (:

BOOMBAS, Point Grey, WA, AU. FF113/CA52/47, GPS7.3/6.0  Arrived to no wind and left with no wind.  Bit of a frustrating sail given the forecast, but did have some good wind around the middle of the day.  Great to have a big turnout. Good luck tomorrow boys, it should be good because I'll be working Smile

Glad you enjoyed it Mike, everyone seemed to be going well when I left. Had it not picked up you would probably be swearing about me now.Smile

Thanks Rog, but I had no plans to be hard core, I just got caught over the far side when it filled in faster than I thought it would - probably more my stuff up, than anything else.

Just so you know. Every time the Pinnas come down to Fangyland and nearby sailing spots, we pick up strings of weed around our footstraps. We take them back to Smellville and soon we we will have our own weedbanks and Fangyland will become a worthless banana republic ruled by a forgotten despot.

MWWWWAAAHAHAHAHAAAAA.   Cough.  Ha ... er belch.

Thanks Firie,

For all those puzzled by the reef location, it's clearly visible in Fangy's tracks to the right and above the point.

I'm Immpressed guys, well done on the sailing and finding the only patch of wind.

In all my travels yesterday the strongest wind I saw was about 15knots at Kwinana, the ocean had next to no whitecaps most of the day, the only noticable wind I got was with the wonderfull light show when I returned to Mandurakastan after dark.

Good to see a big turnout.

All good here so far Ross, hopefully when the wind goes from the North to the West it will help & not make things worse. The photo below is looking from town back towards Little Grove & Lilacs where we sail. The one at the Stirling Ranges makes that look tiny Surprised
