Holloways with Ian and Billy. Ian was/had been on the water for about 30 minutes before I got there.

Wind was a little on the light side initially but came in nicely towards the end of the session.

Good to see Ian on the water again and Billy sailed well towards the end of the session.

Great session ....for a long time a Holloways.

How lucky are we. Middle of June and the 3 of us just sailed, open ocean in BOARD SHORTS. What a sensational day and throughly glad I did it with my mates.

The other Doc, Dr Ian Bally(esq) graced us with his company today and had already eaten his jelly beans when I arrived and was way out on the horizon chasing the white specks. Fred managed to talk the Handbrake into letting me have the afternoon off from painting which was particuarly good work (even if I do say so myself - he didnt really, I just used his heart attack last year as an excuse. Couldnt let the vunerable old bugger sail on his own, could I !!!) so of we toddled. 

Looked like a dredge again out to the wind line on arrival. Cant wait for the day we actually get to plane straight of the beach. Pretty flat today, by Holloways standards and just a real noice winters sail. Touch stonger out wide. By out wide, im talking halfway to Arlington. Managed to get the last of the solid breeze all the way to the beach on the way in which was a real surprise. Id make a call and say that was a pretty solid entry into a Top Ten Holloways sail.

Used: 125 Blue Bludger, 7.3 2012 HSM GPS, S10 47 - was my old 49. But its been re jigged.

Billy, are you saving that Carbonart for special occasion use? Wish I was up there, withdrawals are starting to kick in. Can't seem to get wind, tide and work to align at the moment.

Hey Troy, Ive tried, how I have tried, but the breezes have been so fickle in close to shore lately. The wind line has been sitting at time way offshore and its been a struggle getting out there with my 95kg frame and a 108lt board. I find it far easier to use the Bludger, can manage quite well in the 20knt plus stuff out the back and still get through the lulls closer to shore. If it turns off all together, Im not left doing a water dance to stay upright.

Good one guys. Glad to see my old AHD still going hard. Yer Billy is a bit quicker on it than I was. Has done a lot of hard Kms that board. Lost track of how many paint jobs it's had. Glad everyone went home happy 😊 Well done
