el bog. the usual fade and fury of a northerly front with an ealry aftyernoon swing. Ocassionally pushing past 25kts I reckon.
Choped up with 'surprise' violent gusts made it teacherous sailing today. Falcon 78l, 5.2Hellcat, Leon's something-something-Select 27.
Not quite thirty peak, but geez, it felt very lively over that chop!
Moment of the day: Chris D was the lone sailor slogging out back when it swung and started to kick. For about five minutes, bfore it had chance to mush, Chris got some super smooth water. He came thundering home and then threw into a sweet laydown. The foreshore went wild! Noice one :)

Sailed local with Tricky Carl and Sam. The wind was a let down early, was wondering where the hell it was. Had a catch up chat with the guys, great to see them again. Headed out an hour later to a gusty Northerly and waited for the pick up in wind. Turned out ok as the wind built but the direction wasn't right for a strong bearaway on Port tack on the flat. Tricky got a good one late and the guys were enjoying the stronger wind. Couple of beers and it was getting dark as we left.
Memorable day with the Bogans

|Tricky Bogan (16467km): |
A up & down sail with Hoppy & 2 mexicans on the way it was cranking 35 - 40 dust tree branches then when we arrive it switched off back to 10 15k It finally came back for a nice cruze then picked up to a solid 20 but swung a bit west that made it a bit too broard for good speeds.
A couple of beers & home to warm up. Cracker day with Hoppy, Carl & Sam. Isonic 87 Loft RB6.3 Tribal SWS 29

Lake George, SA, AU
20 to 25 knots, CONSTANT N/NE , sun shining, another bloody fantastics day at George. weed beds are gone but endless possiblilites up new the spit.
through the islands both ways, between island and spit was best, across the middle infront of spit over the weed beds.
should have been at coxy's if get there as the hike up to spit from 5 mile was hard.
mistral 95 speed / 7.0 R8 19 bp delta, fin too small but persisted fro 100km just as I was up in the speed spot and along way home. pulled high 38 max's but didnt like the downwind chop. put 25 tribal weed speed on and hoped I didnt hit the bottom.. CRAZYbetter soooo much more control but wind died.
after lunch wind back up so went 80L patrick speed with 6.2. could get any more speed as wind now up and down with rain.
I think PB with mile yay
|Jimbob the Bogan (22684km): |
On nights so a quick blast for a hour or so. LG at 5 mile. N 20 to 30.
JP wave board, 3.5 then 4.7 Ezzy waves, 24 weedy.
only chucked in wave gear as not feeling it for speed on crap night shift was great on the 3.5 for first 20 minutes then come over stormy and backed of a bit so changed up to 4.7, should havd just went 4.2 from start.
didn't go for any numbers top speed going into my inside gybes.
love using the wave gear just so so easy to sail and gybe.

15 to 30.
Alot of fun today with Tricky, 3/4 and full bogan. Nice to try a new spot not the ideal direction and gusty condtions but still had a ball. Trickys wind meter at home was saying 40 to 45 and on the way down the farmers top soil was getting ripped off.
Full made a late decision to come and glad he did. The day started light and ended up with the wind a little more consistent. Nice to be on the pointer at a weed type location - the fin rocked and luckily picked up very little weed.
Nice to learn the spot and finished the day with some nice gybes and a couple of brewskis with the bogans.
Cheers for the beers 3/4 and the lift to voodoo land - Tricky. Had a 37.38 on the dial but was downgraded a touch lol.
