 Patchy E- ENE Coal Point, NSW, AU

 10-12kts out the front but 15-18kts + at Sand islands and above the point although it was patchy above the point.

 Hard work..Frown

1 run 7m M1OD - RS2 ( 90ltre) and 33cm select pointer 

 then RS4 ( 111ltres) - 7m OD - 43cms makani weedie

I think it was best when I first arrived. One run on the smaller board and great in the gusts but not powered up consistently enough to work up higher where the wind was. Changed to the bigger board with a weedy. Fair bit of floating weed but it didn't seem to be affecting things much . Probably should have stayed with a pointer..Undecided

In the lulls I wanted the 7.5m ( even then some would have been marginal) and in the stronger stuff the 90ltre would have been great.. More wind at the sand islands but choppy wind against tide..1st time I've felt the colder water from the channel ( across bootie) .Went for a nm but working hard to keep on the plane . 

 I should have chugged across to the sand islands with the 90ltre and had fun..

 Tried the M1 Od because I like it's stablity but I think I'll go back to the twitchier NCX as the M1 is much heavier with the luff tube full and starting in the sheltered area with cams popped the wrong way was a pain..

I strained my right forearm last sail so went to Coal for longer runs and less gybes than Budgy. It went ok but I noticed I stuffed my port tack gybes..probably being too careful with my arm and not sheeting in as I gybed. Undecided

 Quit early due to arm and I wasn't really enjpying it that much. It seemed to fill in between Coal and the islands for a while then back to patchy.

Just Tony & I at first . Lyds called down from the slips for a visit.Then Hugh , Lajos, Will, Gert, Craig and Andrew.
