Lake Tinaroo, QLD, AU...my Xmas present this time round was that I contracted a musculor/skeletal  condition know as PMR.   It involves agonising pain in  some parts of my body, particularly the upper arms.    There is no cure and  the treatment involves Cortisone.     For a while I was sure that I would be hanging up my harness, but the steroids give relief and I have been busting to try  myself out on the water.     A bit of wind on dam today so I rigged small. 5.9m Loft  02 and used the JP 78.    Very relieved to find that I still had balance.   OK the wind wasn't all that good but for me it was like being in paradise. Cool/Innocent

iS90, 6.3 RBlade, 34 Goldwing -The Train, Southport SSE 10-23kn

no 'puter so only max speed until i get home.

Was shaping up to be an epic day and got a leave pass after lunch so headed to the Train on Phil's instructions.  initially wind was okay but tide was high and big 'ken stink boats and jetskis made it pretty choppy.  As tide dropped so did the wind as it swung more southerly causing it to be very up and down.  None the less great to finally sail the Broadwater although would be much nicer without having to navigate around moored boats and a myriad of obstacles.

Second go on the iS90 and really happy with how the board is going too.

 

Nice to meet the GC speed team too.

By all reports, it wont be the last time you will get out this week Herb. Looks like a small change is in the air - we all might just get a sail in the coming days....Not b4 time although somewhat unusual. Take care mate and talk soon.

Absolutely no probs at all mate. I reckon it was what we all needed anyway. Just an excuse for a chin wag over a cold one.

Herby,

Hope everything works out with the treatment and you're still able to sail in 20 years when I finally become a legend like you.
