Lake George, SA, AU

Severne Reflex II 6.2, iSonic Speed 49, Choco Weed 24 

Great turn out of local and interstate sailors.

We waited for the forecast 25-35 to hit, and eventually it started to fill in around 2pm. I'd only been sailing for 40 mins and was still finding my groove when I lost it at the end of my peak run and put the Choco Weed through the bottom of my foot - bugger.

Managed to sail back (reminds me to wash the blood off the board), then Daffy bandaged me up with gaffer tape - thanks mate, I'll buy you a beer at the Fishy pub next time Im over.

Couldn't get back out on the water, so drove to the Robe medical centre for stitches, then home to Adelaide - arrived midnight.

The wind was cranking wen I left - arrgghh!!

Spotty was flying, Kato had some 43's, Choco some 42/43's, Chris Adamson was of course very fast but had a BIG stack and spent 2 hours walking his trashed gear back through the thigh-deep mud/weed - broken boom, broken mast, punctured board. Bummer mate.

Disappointed as the lake probably won't be sailable when I can get back on the water and I was really looking forward to improving some PBs.

Good luck to the other guys still there - go hard!!

Lake George SA stand by for report about the interstate onslaught

Dave invited me to stay with him at Lake George and I couldn't resist the offer.  Sailed Daves Tabau and thought I had some smoking runs until I downloaded my track & dropped 5 points.  My GPS was somehow reading MPH (thanks Daffy for sorting that out) I was really stoked with the 42 on the dial but was a bit devestated at the end when I realised it was MPH. Sailed the KA5.8 & the 26 Choco speed weed but was a bit off the pace.  I went over the handle bars a couple of times and should have changed down to the 5m (coulda, woulda, shoulda!), Oh well, I will never know if that would have been faster. Decided to quit before I did any serious damage.  Lots of imports from Vic and WA and greatto catch up with them all for tea at the Pub.

Hope Chris D's foot is OK

Ouch Chris. Plenty of feet being damaged, yeah heal fast:-)

Seems the lake is getting its own back with quite a few spectacular stacks and subsequent equipment demolishment. The price you pay for being on The Edge!! (TV commercial ripoff quote - my bad:-)
