Got to Melville around 7:30 to check it out.  Saw the wind building so rigged up...the idea being I could chug along and get more distance in rather than burn 2hrs to getting to/from to Mandurah.    Looked ok and the water like glass so headed out, was really really holely and gusty.  The bits (maybe only 100m stretches) where there was wind were great, but then almost nothing for twice as long.  Highlight was a dolphin decided to catch breakfast right next to me in a whirl of spray and flying fish which was quite epic.   Did 6km then decided to call it quits, cut my losses and head to Liptons.    At least I was out when the arrows were green and it was truly lousy.  Called into Coodanup on the way to check it out and see if anyone there, looked ok but no one out so continued to Liptons. Had wasted 3hrs..one day I will realise the river is not that great.    Arrived same time as Reg.   Waricle (nice to meet you) turned up and advised it would be fairly lumpy...no kidding.   Headed straight for Point grey and found a relatively small chop area down wind of the point so decided to hang there and get some Km's up.   Was fairly holey (but nothing like Melville) and slow to get going again after gybes but in general it wasn't too hard work.   In one lull I managed to get right above a huge sting ray who didn't notice me until right above and then complete mayhem when he and I shat ourselves...Stopped at around 80km to stick a bit of charge in the GPS and met Cannonball (nice to meet a fellow team member) just heading out.  Wind had seemed to pickup when I headed out again, tried a few channel crossings but it was hard work and I knew I'd run of out steam doing that so went back to hang around point grey.   This was going well until about 140km when the wind seemed to change direction and the wind downwind from the point all but disappeared.  So was forced to head back into the chop to do the last 10km which was hard work and the body was starting to hurt so decided to call it quits at 150km.    Was Cinderella time for me so couldn't have done much more.   During this last 10km slog, Slowboat rolls up and makes it all look so easy...  120 Tabou Rocket, 6.7 RRD Move, Tribal 33 Weedspeed

Melville Beach, WA, AU

After more than 3 months off the water i needed to try out my knee in a decent breeze.

I felt like a newby again at first and was a bit spent after 20ks. 

Quite amazing how much fitness you lose if you dont get out enough.

Still a tad cautious so i didnt go for it like i did before.

Great to catch up with many familiar faces.

Short sail at Peli, mostly maxed on the 7.0. The tide was way too high for speed runs but I did get an OK good NM run that was super fun / scary. Greg was heading out as I was packing up.

Peel Inlet, WA, AU

Had a couple of attempts at the hour. After 20 mins the screw in the foot strap broke, next attempt I sailed a long way into the estuary whre the wind died so that was another 30 mins gone then managed to string together an hour only dropping one gybe although the wind seemed to be fading towards the end so for top speeds I think missed the best of the wind. Great to meet Flex and Reg. Good to see a few familiar mobbers and Slowy who felt he should have sailed at the local. Lunny's Mistaral co-lab 112, KAR 7.1, TSW29. Pretty good start to the week.

Melville Beach, WA, AU

Gusty as usual, probably more so, and tide high so flat water hard to find

Trying conditions but did enough to get to outright top in 78 to 100 years age group.

Looking forward to a decent sesssion at Coodanup sometime, because I know I can do better.

90 RRD, 5.8 Koncept, 29 weedy

Great to see Craig back on the water

A good days effort Flex.  Dedication...you started at dawn and finished at sunset in not the most pleasant of conditions.  150km in that blustery changeable wind.  I am sorry that I fell short of 150km but I was distracted by velocity from time to time and knackered myself!  Well done everyone who got out today.  I was happy to contribute to the Alpha and the Nm on my tiny slalom JP54 and 5m Mach 3.

Glad to see you out Lunny seeing we share the same dodgy knee.   Was good sailing with you Reg, should have taken your suggestion though and gone straight to Liptons instead of wasting my time on the river, that hr number we were shooting for was a lot harder than expected in those conditions..  Distance wise, Cannonball was at 88Km when I stopped, hopefully he pulled out a miracle and kept going...thanks Anita for the enthusiam as always.

Great work!
