Arlington Reef FNQ  (southern arm) Wind 18-23 SSE Seas Horrible Xfire 105 Sting 38 RSS mk 4 7.0

Set off with Vando at 845 for a quick NM session .Crossing going over wasnt too bad  6klms down of down wind blasting through messy seas ...

Wind was very patchy for the 1st run but improved for 2nd & 3rd runs .A couple of holes in the middle ruined the score but awesome fun with some 35 knot peaks during the gusts .

Headed off home at ~945 sans Vando -1/2 later arrived back at GI sans Vando MMMmmm-he's such a competitive B I figured he must have kept sailing until he started clipping the reef with the  fin .

After another hr he limped into port sporting a "not happy"face ,a busted base plate pin & a 94 l board with a 3cm deep gouge in the deck -not good .The fact the he had a 47knot peak speed on his GPS unit didnt even register a smile ...!!!

The complete GI experience !!!Total carnage over the past 3 days  1 RRD x fire 90 1 sonic 94 1 RSR 5.8 1 NSX 6.6 1 sting 30 1 slingshot 23 1 sting 34 .Challenging/rewarding/unforgiving  but overall amazing place to sail .Thanks for coming to share your speed sailing brilliance with us Vando !!!

Kurrimine Beach.     Decided I would have a session during the hour just before low tide....I thought the wind was pretty good and conditions not too bad.  I estimate the difference between the crest of the chop to the bottom of the trough to be about 500mm.    Anyway eventually I was stuffed so pulled the pin.  Sure that Mike and Mal enjoyede themselves.             5.9m Loft 02 and Gunny Runner 54.

Hey Cam,      Just had Mal with me checking out your posting and he said   "Cam invites all those Guns to the Island and when they capture the Island PBs, he tries to eliminate them"  and I am wondering if Cap'n Firie is in on this plan as well.Cool

Kurrimine's been good for you Herbo, been getting some nice speeds for the coast Cool

Camikaze, at lest Vandal Man can't say it's been boring, it will be a long time before he forgets this trip, still better and cheaper than going overseas to look at old buildings Wink

Hi Sausage, yep, we're moving out of here Wed morning, will then call in to Taylors, Alva and Bowen for a start. Plan to be in Hervey Bay on the 8th.

Decrep, If you get enough time come through Yeppoon - you might even get a sail in although I suspect the wind we're getting at the moment won't be around for long.  Safe travels.
