Budgewoi Lake, NSW, AU. 5.5 Cheetah, 79 Falcon. Very up and down wind and probably the choppiest I've sailed in at Budgie but heaps of fun with plenty out. Packed and gone just before the rain.

10-20kts with occ puffs 25kts plus WNW then occ gusts 30kts + Budgewoi Lake, NSW, AU - level 0.44

 5m OD - 70ltre Patrick- 16cm tribal

Couldn't get into it today. Tired and nose was running plus I rigged too small. 

 I rigged the 5.5m Mach2 but then chickened out and rerigged the 5m and killed it with too much downhaul and the wrong clewhole..Ok in the stronger gusts but not enough of them to get upwind so plenty of walking. I was going to practise gybes but there was either buggerall wind or when it did blow there was a bit much and I was too tired to be bothered,.Undecided I miss gybing..Frown

 I feel my sailing has been lousy lately and I tire easily. I notice the 2ltre camelback is hanging very low and pulling back on me so i'll have to find another way to tie it on so it doesn't sag.Frown

Came in for a quick bite and I was going to rig bigger but it seemed to be picking up and the change was due so back out. a few good gusts but I was never in the right place. Missed the gust of the day as I was too tired and stuffed the start,..Undecided

Cloud was coming so I came in and derigged. Glad I did! When it hit there were willy willies coming down the lake and I was worried the tree above the car would lose limbs. It also dropped from about 17 degrees to 9 degrees with a bit of rain.

 I had just seen Mick sail past on his first run so I think he would have had 'fun' when it hit! Surprised

Budgewoi Lake, NSW, AU

FF70 and 6.2 before lunch then CA40 and 6.2 after lunch

Typical Budgie day 10-25 kts of gusty westerly, then an insane 20 minutes of 40+ knots. Had to just hang on to the gear until it eased enough to sail home.

That is a PB alpha for my speed board

N/W 10-20 knots then S/W rain squall 30+.

Fanatic Falcon 51 Speed, R8 Overdrive 5.7, Xt50 14 fin. Very up and down today, on and off the plane and waiting for gusts to get going. Timing gusts when in the flat water was difficult. Still had a nice day and more time on the speed board. The normal Budgie and Lake Mac guys plus Rick , Mark and a few others.

My back still no good first sail in ages and sore today its just not geting there looking unlickly for the AUS titles to be fit and OK with 7 weeks or so to go but cross fingers but loosing hope since I have had it since January.

Morning sail before work and wind picked up last 5 min before I had to go to work allthough it was rough water anyway.

Looks like everyone had a great time. Smile Nice postcard from the tropical North. LOL!

Great speeds Hugh, and Andrew  Cool

Nice to see a PB Rus.Cool

Good speeds Sue!  Loose the camelback and you will sail longer with more energy. Its dragging you down and wearing you out.

Some photos of the conditions at the launch as I derigged.

I think the white is the mist from the strong wind.

Bit like conditions on the 29th except it was more consistently windy.
