I went home happy ...YAY. Took a punt and headed upto the home of the legends. Arrive to bright blue sky's and a complete white out - the choppy kind. Wow, it was honking. The best i have seen it at Tinaroo for over 12 months. Andy@WSG's little thingy wind measurer bobby doohicky was being kind and read 20 knts at the shore, but it was crazy stuff out in the middle for a while....oh well, whats a lad sposed to do, just rig what you brought up mate and have a crack.
So up went the 7.3 HSM GPS with me old mate Bluey the Bludger, dinner plate eyeballs and we just held on for dear life. Had a ball. Couldnt land a gybe to save myself to start off, just to rough and couldnt get my balance right so we just persevered with NM's & 2 Sec. Could have done with a shorter fin today. The old 49cm S10 was very draggy at the top end and cost me heaps i'd say, weel thats my story any way . Andy was smoking out there. Looked real fine and had the old Futura cranked down wind and was laying down a real nice session. Glad I made the effort guys - safe travels home next week.
Started to die out as the early arvo progressed so we voted for an early knock off.
Used: 125 AHD Blue Bludger, 49 S10, HSM GPS 7.3

Such a beautiful day out there. Rigged 7.2m V8 and Atomiq120. Nice 20 knot breeze and sunshine everywhere - I would still be out there but I had an appointment. Left Ed Wheatley out there, working on his 90km afternoon. He looked happy with his 97 isonic and 6.6m S-Type. Veteran, John, turned up for a sail. Benny has sold him my old 7.2m Fusion and he is going to get a lot of use out of that. Also sold him a boom and leant' him an old 122 litre Futura that was gathering dust in the container. Hoping to pencil in a Friday session.

Green Island, QLD, AU 20-30knot forecast but didnt eventuate .Rigged the Evos 5.8/6.4 last night for an early session -best water was going to be ~ 630 but 15knots only at 630 .
Shed is locked until 920 am so no chance to access bigger gear .
Spent my time on the Iso 80 /Tribal SW 27/Evo 9 6.4 .
Beautiful warm day so disappointed with lack of wind but still a great place to "skunked".
