Queens Lake, NSW, AU. Nice wind when i got to the lake. Mark and Maree were going well on the mud bank. Rigged and hit the water and the wind died. Went out anyway, got planing twice. Ten minutes later thunder and lightning, went home. Very frustrating.

Lucky to get a sail before the storm , but we do need the rain
Queens Lake, NSW, AU
Forcast looked promising so the plan was to be on the water by 1pm , lake was nice height today and wind was cracking in from the south when i was rigging up , Maree was out first and looked sweet on the 70 litre patrik and 5.8m ka koncept , i rigged the same board with the usual 6.3m ka race and 17cm kestral , really solid wind rigging at the boat , but as usual with the south wind really gusty , just had to get a good run and the speeds would have been a bit better , too busy sailing and not waiting for a gust to get a good run down the lane , well just shows need to listen to the wifey
Thunder and lightning put a hold to the day and a quick pack up and back to the boat ramp , waited with dion but it just got worse so packed the boat and came home .
