Lake Illawarra, NSW, AU

 

An historic day at Lake Illawarra, 2X 40 knot 2 second peak    Well done Leo and Craig.  They've been working hard for it.

 

Went out for a bit on a 5.7 Hellcat upwind of the weed. Too windy, waited and waited for it to settle down. Tried again, but unsailable later on.

What a day Ian the Lake turned it on, sure was a spectical. Those gust at the end of the day were insane. Did you end up going out again.

That's not like the Ian I used to know. Heading straight down wind in the biggest gusts of the day on Botany Bay! Lucky your not in Brisbane-I dream of the day I get enough wind to be overpowered on my smallest sail- 6.3!!! Good to see you still out there Ian. Look me up in the Moreton Bay Mob if you get bored.

Hi there Phil,  the gusts are getting bigger but I'm still out there. I'll check your form from Moreton Bay.    Went out again Craig with a 5.0 when those insane gusts had backed off. But it went severely on/off. You didn't miss anything the best was in the morning. Tomorrow's looking good, only 25 knots or so. Maybe I'll rig a 6.3.

 

 

You can't be all that short of wind up there Phil, I can see some very good NMs and Alphas in recent times, it's a while since you cracked 40 thoughLaughing
