Fun little arvo session with Freddo. Nice 15 knt'er blowning at the mud pit, maybe touch stonger out wide. Sun was shining, plenty of wildlife again and rough as guts out wide. Had to really keep an eye out for a patch of flat water between the swells to get any decent speeds today. Nicely powered up all arvo on the 7.0 OD M1.....Noice, noice, noice. Was a real pleasure to sail today - after yesterdays debacle. Fred was hooting along today and I have a feeling there wasnt to much between us all arvo. Pretty much just followed each other blatting around. Fun, fun, fun.
Used: "The Bludger", 7.0 OD M1, 47 S10.

One of my favourite days. Sunshine blue sky- nice 17 knot breeze. Atomiq 120 and my Neil Pryde V8 7.2 - the perfect amount of wind to hook in and cruise along. A bit rough out the back but nice and flat inshore. Played with the kites all afternoon. Old mate, Lync came out to play and is listening and learning - adapting to the modern speed board and sail technology and techniques. He is still building fitness and sorting out the gear. Still in love with the Enigma Boom - just fantastic.

HOLLOWAYS BEACH sailed with young William on his 'Bludger'.....recently reincarnated.....30+.
Late...ish start arriving there as Billy had just finished setting up about 2:10.....quickish setup
and on the water about 2:35. Billy had completed a couple of runs and looked the goods on the angry seas
with his 'serverne' -#@!* locked down hard on the board reminded me of 'Herby'.
Even though it was low tide as we ventured out it was rough and murky but managed to sail pretty much together
as we used to before GPS's urging each other on. Both had decided we would only try for an hour as we had other
commentment scheduled later in the afternoon.
Used a liitle outhaul on the Koyote today and that seemed to work.....'stopping him from running off and doing
his own thing' ....bit more control.
Great afternoon ...quite good company. (even though Billy had sailed 3 days in a row).
