Point Walter, WA, AU/Melville/Attadale
137 6.3m 33wsp NE wind- sailed mostly the back of Melville sandbar. Doldrums go on and on and on... but that was fun! Made the rookie mistake of rigging on the bet the wind would come in. I lost. A few very short gusts every now and then and plenty of dredging. Saw a few others out and felt better when I realised reg was on his 5.0m hahahaha he did the same thing as me. There were some pretty violent bullets, and gust of the day nearly nailed me when on the slingshot a bit of chop hit my leg and was _right_ on the edge of getting flung over the bars. Wasted it. At least the water was really flat thanks to the extensive lulls.
