Annual pilgrimage to Lake George delayed it a few days as no wind earlier in the week arrived yesterday Fisky and Chris Bennett in residence, Fisky left this morning without saying see ya later, Chris hung around for a morning sail in the northerly which was so up and down I decided to wait until this arvo when it was to swing SW 18k at 1.30. It swung but dropped out and went glassy but kicked in at 5.00 for an hour around 15-18. Looks pretty good for the next few days but was happy with what we got after not being on the water for nearly six months, short but sweet. Norm Clark made his annual comeback and Stotty, Shane and Nicolle are all here Severne 6.0 NCX on 112l JP Looking forward to a good week

590km to sail 20 minutes crash at 36.7 knots, break the mast and spend the next 1hr walking back. 🤔🤔.
Despite all that i had a fun day. Met the Bogan blokes. Went faster than I have for a while. Gt a better average than all of last year and now I get to go shopping lol.
Oh and I got exactly 5 runs in before the crash.
Good to see yas hop and trick. Well done on the numbers.
Cheers for the sleepover Carl and well done today mate

Unreal day at Stansbury today with the best sesh so far . Good crew out Tricky, Hoppy, Sam, Chris and Simon. Plan was for a lete sesh after the arvo southerly picked up. When we arrived the northerly was cranking and after a quick rig (for a change) - hit the water. With the sandbar partially showing had to head out a bit and worked up to between the leases and sandbar. 2nd run in got hold of a gust and saw 39.09 on the sreen.
Hoping for some 40's this year i was hoping i could start it early with 40 6 days in. Enjoyed some fun runs and later managed another decent gust and had a 39.61 on the screen with a 38.87 10 second. Soon the tide really dropped and starting clipping the razor fish and picking up weed.
Took a while to walk above leases and wind swung so could head back to shore. After lunch and a beer we waited and waited and waited but the arvo breeze didn't happen till late and the tide was too high. We called it a day - so stoked we made use of the early northerly .
The Patrik 87 and 5.6m gun sails GSR with the black project weed speed 31 today were amazing - rock solid and fast .
Cheers guys for the after sesh beers guys
Sorry for your bad luck today Sam.
Bring on some more of this ...
Stansbury - 20 to 30 knot northerly.

Not much sailing today after my keys got locked in my car. Spare set 140kms away. Tried to explain to roadside assistance how to get to Bog forshore - the operator was not filling me with confidence. Went out for some brief runs but always kept ready to come in.
Despite the apparently dodgy directions they gave, after an hour Neville arrived and broke in about five minutes with zero damage. Used a long maleable hooked piece of metal tp spring the inside passenger handle after cracking the door with a pair of inflatable bags.
Neville from Gilberton RAA - you're a dead set legend. As are the other boggiers who lent me phones/gave me water. Windsurfers are the best.

What a cracker of a bogan day sailing beers and great company I am ready fior bed
Edit & Update: Arrived as others were on the water or just about to hit it, Saw Sams HUGE dismount from the beach while still rigging
RIgged the Loft RB 5.6 on the Isonic 87 & slotted in the FF20 RBK (razor back crusher) Took a while to settle in and gain confidence in the FF after some bad sessions on a delta. the gusty conditions were not helping, but dialed is some nice runs in the dieing wind (sudda got their eairler) Well if I hit 10 razor backs I hit 100 & the FF sported a few minor scratches Soopper please with the performace matched it with the rest of the team (execpt for the 2 heavy weights) The added bonus was when the wind switched 20-27 gusts WSW & the chop jumped up to 3-4 ft I could still sail back up wind. In general the FF trucks up wind.
I got a DIY FF sanded to fit the tuttle box did the shape tidy up & a sand with 80 grit a quick lick with 120grit & realised I should have done a bit more with the 80, but decided to give it a go as was knowing I hoped it was going to war on the razor fish I did not want to waste too much time if it was going to come out distroyed so there was absolutly NO bing on this fin finnish. Realy please with the numbers considering I missed the best wind but I did do a 24 alpha just a squeek too wide. Shudda tried for a 0ty as mine had a jibe in it.
SO all in all stoked with the FF20
