Pelican Point, WA, AU   Iso 111, V8-7.5, Fo42.

wife said  "gee looks windy today, you should go for a sail"  Aaahhh ok. down to the river after work, I went.  Garry baker in the carpark, long time no see. To start with wind was 5 to about 18kn. nice gusts but big holesFrown. First decent sail in an easterly.

On way back in noticed Garry waving at me, hmmm must want something, headed towards him then got thrown over the bars, WTF. turns out he was trying to stop me from sailing into crab pot rope(with only a coke bottle on the end)didn't see them at all. There was a line of them strung across peli about 50 metres out from launch area. Garry dragged two into the shallows. When fishermen came into check them Garry kindly pointed out the pots for them and they went off at him , how dare he move there pots, told him they would run him over next time. don't think they realised who they were messing with, them being in a boat and Garry in the water. they were a couple of D...h..ds, while Garry called the cops I pointed out to them that we couldn't see them and someone could get seriously hurt. they said we couldn't give a f..k.  Next time its out with a knife and they can kiss there pots goodbye. Like I said D..kh..ds.

Wind filled in after a while but washing machine chop coming from all directions made life tough for any good speeds but had a great time out there. missed the mark with all my best gybes, really have to sort that out.

No wonder I felt tired when finished, cracked the century sweet, should let Sachin know how it's done He he.

In fact missed the mark with all my gybes that alpha is a tack, so gotta be happy with that.

Come on boys you've still got one day left to take my jellybeans. Goes to show how average the winds been lately that I still have them.

Looks like I should have spent more time out past the point, will know for next time. have to work out where to sail with the Easterly.

Gonna sleep well tonight

Nice going Captain you keep on disappearing over the other side so I keep losing track of you. You have got to learn to keep out of that rough stuff, it was shocking over that far side I don't know how you put up with it

I think your J beans are safe Laughing

Bloody good distance there Ray Gun. I managed about 10% of that on Sunday and found the chop to be a real pain in the ass knees. As for the fisherman, I hope they catch the crabs they deserve.

Troutty I know I'm a sucker for punishment and I should take more notice of where you guys are, That being my first decent easterly and me being a bit thick I'm sure  I'll learn.

D- think I saw them scratching as they motored away.Laughing

Well wannabees have to say thanks for letting me keep the beans and thanks huey for the lack of wind, didn't give anyone a chance to take them.Innocent  long time listener, first time caller.
