5-10kts W then 5 kts WSW Coal Point, NSW, AU
7.5m Turbo- Windtech64 ( 112ltres) - 35cm tectonics weed demon
Missed it today.. Went out too late and yakked too much and it had died by the time I got out. Hung out there hoping it would come in. Went in and had lunch and it seemed to be ok but of course the minute I hit the water it dropped to 5kts.
Once again I hung around hoping the promised SSW would appear. Of course the wind also turned back to the NW and I wasn't going to make Grant st. Istarted walking up across the reefs but the sail was popped the wrong way and there wasn't enough wind to pop it back. Luckily it kicked in to 6-8kts so I could make the last bit in a few tacks.
Andrew & Greg had appeared on their race foils and all of the 3 desperados slogged around together.
I'm a great wind sacrifice.. As soon as I got out of my wettie it came in 10-13kts plus and they were flying ..grr
Hopefully next time will be better.

JPHF 135 F4 Slalom 800 foil Skyscape 8.0
WNW 5-12 kts with the odd puff of 14 - First go of the F4 Slalom kit in a super crappy westerly was up and down but never bulit to anything substantial. Was pleasantly surprised by the light wind performance of such a small wing (670cm2) although any runs longer than 500m were few and far between. It felt fast on a the few of occasions I was powered up.

Nothing like what was forecast. Did one run and it turned off, dogged back and waited, finally rewarded with a half hour or so of patch westerly.
Just Greg, Sue and me.
