Lake George, SA, AU 10 to 40 knots WNW to WEST
Bloody hard day, the toughest, water high and no smooth stuff, over 37 knots was deadly in most cases, wind had 40 knot bullets coming at us, pretty well too hard to handle for me anyway.

Another great but bloody hard day's saiing at LG! Choppy and gusty for most of the morning as water level is high. Doing 39knots felt like 45! Nearly lost it really badly at about 38 - scary!!!

Lake George - 15 to 40 knots.
Wow George was very angry today. Up at 2ish at Stash's place at 3am and met Daishy at the Bridge at just after 4. Quick load up and off to LG.
Quick stop in Kingston for refreshments and off we went arriving at the spit around 8.30.
Wind wasn't strong yet and with a 30 to 35 knot forecast i had my heart set on the 5m.
Grabbed out the speed board and fitted the goto Vector weed speed 23 and checked the wind. Seemed gusty and the squals were strong but in between not so strong.
Decided on the 5.6 along with the big guns Daish and Stash on 5.6 and 5.7's.
Hit the water with Daish and glugged for a decent time and i got going and headed to 5 mile on a semi powered run.
Waited for 15 odd minutes and the wind started. Probably 18 to 25 to start with and soon the fronts started.
Tried to head up to Uncle Kev's for some flat water but that seemed to be missing with the usual 2 to 3 inch chop at 5 to 10 inch rolling troughs. The weed is now at knee level and the water is at waist deep in the low parts.
We all had a good look around and had some fun cruising across the wind in some 30 to 35 knot squalls in survival mode - all having a ball.
Saw Stash in a massive 40 knot squall didn't see how it ended but sounded interesting.
Heaps of 38 knot runs and a couple of 39's and 6 kgs on my back and after 100 k's we called it.
Daishy managed a 41 knot peak and Stash - over 40 on the dial - great sailing guys well done i wasn't quite the crazy man in the chop for a change as i didn't want to go home in a body bag. Probably could have been on the 5m alot of the time and happy with the number in choppy conditions.
Would say the hardest 100k's at LG and the most challenging with very gusty and choppy conditions and the cold was bitter.
if it wasn't for Daishy's hot water and a beanie i would have pack up lol.
Great way to come out of lockdown and cheers George for a memorable season well see you next season...
Cheers Daishy and Stash for a great day roadie and the lift down - bring on next season...
