 10-c20kts SSW - SSE then 5- 12kts S - SSE Coal Point, NSW, AU

 6.6m KA Koncept - RS4 ( 111ltres) - 36cm drake pointer then 

 7.5m GT turbo and 43cm Makani weedy

Lousy stats but that was the nicest sail i've had for ages!

Very unenthusing at home - 11 degrees and raining.. I couldn't get to sail until late. It was a tropical 17 degrees at Coal and sunny! 

I should have rigged the 7m but played it safe as some of the gusts looked around 20kts . I got one or 2 puffs on the first run and that combo was lovely - really light and pleasantly powered up. The chop wasn't too bad once you got away from Coal.

It was starting to drop so after an hr or so I came and rigged the big kit... It had dropped further so I didn't get on the plane much but it was really flat for the lake..I pumped onto the plane in one 10kt gust and then stayed planing after it had gone for around 500ms in about 5 kts of wind! Surprised It felt amazing..

It was a lovely sunny afternoon. As much as I love Budgy it was so nice not to have to worry about depth , weedbergs, working hard upwind all the time and have the whole lake to play in!.Cool

Just me , 1 large cat in the distance and that was it..Smile If only the lake was that quiet midsummer..Undecided

Had a hair appointment all am. She took hrs putting foils in ,shampooing,cutting.blowdrying. It looked terrific for an hr or so then I went  sailboarding.  Going great then I was subplaning out of the straps with.a gust coming., I went for the rear strap and my foot just went straight over the top and off the other side and sploosh! In  I went..wet hair..😁

I won't tell her she'll cry..🤣
