Melville Beach, 118L/7.5m -  A very pleasant day at Melville. Warm and sunny.

A bit larger gear would have been better, but mostly worked fine today. It was nice to catch up with Craig, Damo and Snake.

Had to get out after laying flat out for 2 days with the worst disease known to man....Yep the Man Flu, worse than anything ever, even worse than a girl fluKiss Wife seemed quite happy to get me out of the house for some strange reason, she was smiling and waving goodbye? Anyway... with marginal breezy stuff it was still good to be on the water. Bit chilly in the water, I might not have had to be in it for as long if it werent for some floaty palm leafy thing that decided to be in the perfect spot at speed, right in front of me, so over the handlebars for a loveley swim. No damage thankfully, just 2 lumps in my throat from the cold water. Was out with Obelix and Bunyip with Jake getting out later for what seemed the best of it. Sorry it took me a while to click who you were JP i was thinking where have i seen you before?......Oh thats right you were the guy who stopped me bleeding to death when i tried so sever off my leg with a fin, yeah i remember nowEmbarassed oohh thats embarrassing.

Lots out and a good friendly and chatty bunch as usual.

Thanks Craig for clearing the water of wood debris and showing me how to dismount convincingly!

Melville Beach, WA, AU. Bikini weather....almost.

Nice sunny day with a lot of crew out. Had the hour in my sights, with 22.1 average at 44 minutes in (super lit at times), thought is was there for sure, but then I spotted Steve M. out the back trying to disassemble a newly fashioned 3 piece mast.

Steve had found a gum tree branch and did a big over-the-bars. Gave the hour away right then and sailed back to help him out. He said he'd be fine paddling in, so I grabbed the stick instead and sailed that in. Try sailing with a 2m branch hanging out of the footstraps - not easy I can tell you!! Dumped the branch on shore and went back to check on Steve who by that stage was just a bobbing head, holding a sinking 8m sail - the board, laden with carbon boom and broken mast bits, etc. had blown away towards lucky bay. Bugger. One run back in to the beach to get the car 33.1 on the dial - yeeehaaaaar - then dumped my gear and drove up to get Stevo. That walk of shame would have sucked! Timed it right in the end as the wind backed off by the time we'd got back. Another fun day on the light wind slalom kit - loving it! Cool

Welcome back, Lunny!

Obelix and Tailwind, good to see you got a session in.

Congratulations Bunyip on a PB, especially on such a gusty day.

definitely some Karma coming your way Jake, whereabouts did Steve and his board come ashore?

Pity about the hour...

Interesting Snake cos I hit some sort of black log in the water...up towards Majestic Pt....luckily only ended up with a couple of black scrapes on the bottom of the board and fin....was a solid hit but must have been a glancing blow because I kept going. I wondered where Steve had gone.
