It might be haloween in the USA tonight, but it was howling at Wello today.. NNE read 14 - 16 knots earlier around 10am, though wind just kept getting stronger. Gusts reached 24knots plus by 1pm. 'Rough as' on the full tide, and didn't really level out much. Nick changed down twice: from a 7.5NCX to a 6.5NCX and finally to a 5.5NCX. Five lads: Chris, Jayson, John, Ian and Scotty came over from Lota/Manly, and hung around for the sandbank to emerge for some speed runs, crackin speeds up ~37knots! John spurred me on to have a few runs down the sandbank. It paid off as I finally cracked the 30knot barrier! It would've been worthwhile to hang around and do a few more speed runs down the bank, but the kiters were out jumping and I'd suffered a left ankle twist and ligament strain on one of my earlier gybes. So with a brusied right thigh from Tuesday, and a strained left ankle from today, decided to call it quits to no further injuries today.. Storm passed through around 2pm, but the Northerlies held in thereafter. A good sail.

Yep should have rigged the 6m well out of shape the first few runs but have had a decent blow in a long while, pretty stocked with a PB and at Wello!  Tried another run at Lota before the storms but still too much water so decided to call it. Unexpected big blow with RQYC meter well over 35 most the arvo, plenty of happy sailors out there today!

Well done Shane!! Was a wild ride back to Lota... hung around waiting for the tide but storms looked to threatening, now sheltering from the hail at a random industrial estate on the way home😳

What an extraordinary sailor you are Chris. Well done on that most impressive 2sec Speed. Hope everything is intact. Warp drive engaged there. Yes, PBs all round. And here comes another round of hail for the day with these storms which are passing through.

Well done Shane, I'm really happy you nailed the 30kt milestone. I'm sure there is more to come.

Chriso, what I can say that hasn't been said already. I can't contemplate how you held that 7 in 30 plus. Fantastic 41.5 kt PB. Sailing across Waterloo bay with the 7 is even more epic.
