Lake Illawarra, NSW, AU. Primbee. Low tide again Frown, I was a bit spooked by the low level today (not help by the fact that I hit something submereged - scared the S#@t out of me , but no damage?). WSW wind maybe > 20 knots late in the day.

Arrived early (just after 7am) and was met with 4 or 5 intrepid souls already getting ready! Unfortunately the predicted wind hadn't hit so although I rigged and trudged out through the weed there wasn't enough wind to get going - I suppose I was just desperate for a sail!

I got back on the water at about 12:30 and had a great sail, mainly down near the entrance. The wind was patchy but the Sv 7m was feeling great - reacting well to the gusts and driving the board well. I switched over to the iSonic as the wind increased and set the best speeds on this board. No great speeds but fun none the less. By the end of the day the 7m sail was on the limit and I was getting buggered. A bit of a lost opportunity for better speeds.

Great to see a lot of guys out - Gustbusters, 'roaches and Pit CrewCool

SB iSonic 78, JP SS 109, SV R3 7m, BP WS 28/45, Limey weedy.

Great 2 sec PB Terry! I didn't see you at all today - I must have had blinkers onSurprised.

What was that thing you were on John? Square nose or what! It looked fast on the water.

yes John it broke away a few times but they correct easy, I think the sail was back to far. they run well in a foot of water.

Well done to you all, think this place may generate some good things to come.

Easier to get a leave pass up here as the bride has rellos up here.

Would loved to have stayed after the Sharks went down to Dragons todayFrown

Good onya Terry, not a day for pbs I'd thought.  Teabaggin has put some great aerial photos of your square nosed board up on seabreeze John.  Some thing wrong with my GPS file today, it crashed my computer.
