Fun little arvo at the Dam with B2. Patience was a virtue today and it delivered right on 1430hrs a nice little 12/13 kntr. Great value fun and certainly cooled the place down. It was hot as on the hill today and todays breeze im sure was just a nice little thermal up lift on to the dam. 

Happy to have made the effort - great end to a super weekend. Thanks B2.

Used: The "Tinaroo Tank", BPR 475, Loft RB 8.6.

Desperado mission to the dam today with B1 in the hope to catch some breeze...  Rocked up at 1pm only to find perfect Water Skiing conditions with barely a ripple on the water.  Decided to be patient in the heat and park up underneath a paperbark tree to discuss the meaning of life with B1...  Surprised

After an hour or so of philosophical chit chat, B1 went to throw in the towel...  Being determined, I said I was just going to wait it out for another 20 minutes or so...  then pointed out that there were a few shadows coming through...  then it went like this- "is that a white cap B1?"..."no B2, that's just a bloody buoy"...  "are you sure B1, pretty sure I saw a couple of white caps over there"...  after a bit of back and forth, the wind actually started to pick up enough for us both to be persuaded to rig up.

Certainly nothing to get super excited about, but just enough to tease and sooth the itch.  The dam's such a beautiful sailing destination!  Just another few knots or ten would have been terrific (apologies for sounding greedy B1).

B1 sailed really well today in the conditions (so many beans!), although, I did manage to sneak a couple of drive bys past him albeit short planing runs Laughing

Side Note:  Better to launch from Fong On Bay side when there's any Northerly wind direction.

Hopefully the forecasts stay true for a GI session this weekend coming! Cool

Glad to see you guys (B1 & B2 ) got a sail at Tinaroo....numbers are pretty close ....pity you didn't get a bean Benny.

Hopefully the weather forecast holds out for next week at Green for you both.
