iS111, 6.2K, 24FF   Coodanup (not the chook pond)

An on-off sail in sunshine and squalls with Gloria and Flex.

Was a good workout on the big gear during the squall.

I did notice a ranger cruising past a couple of times

Nirimba, WA, AU.  After the run in with the twitchers yesterday thought I'd start looking for alternative sail spots in case the Chook pond days are numbered.   Antman reported wind was lousy in the Pond so seemed a good day for a recon.  Planned to hike into Austin bay, head to the Cay and see if any wind and flat water there...the forecast was 23 knots so might get lucky.   Arrived and at the only possible park spot there was a dead crow which was a bit of a weird omen.   Wind was looking bleak so loaded the big gear onto the buggy and walked the 2km in.  The gate 400m or so on was locked so couldn't have driven like last time anyway.    Rigged and headed out, super pleasant in the sun and cruising at a nice 16knots upwind so all looking good.  Didn't last, soon chugging, then got going then chugging so upwind progress was slow.  Then a squall hit, wind swung and I was sailing totally over powered towards Yunderup....water was flat as so went with it but the experimental fin kept letting go and spinning out big time.   Wind seemed now to be strong and steady so tried to baby the fin but every time got to around 26knots it let go....there was so much more power to put down but couldn't.    Since I couldn't take advantage of conditions which seemed to now be strong decided to pull the pin on the original mission plan and head to Coodanup.   Arrived there to find Gloria and Windxtasy hard at it and wind blow'n hard...started rigging 6.3 but despite getting the top plug seated before setting off it once again popped out like yesterday...faffed around for ages and by the time got it on wind had dropped so decided to rig bigger.   Got out and just got going.  Then a squall hit and again over powered with fin spinning out in the chop...then becalmed...so gave up.   Nirimba iSonic 117, Sv 8.6, FF18 GL, Coodandup isonic 97, KAR7, FF22

Nice sailing nearly was tempted at Melville but was like a tap fully on or fully off, Anita ranger was parked up this morning as well😁 seeing how responsible you were today probably the rangers thinking it was all made up yesterday by the bird people😁apart from the photographic evidence the bird people would probably have we should be okay😁😎

Mentioning only as dangerous car wreck (as opposed to the Walyungup rust bucket) about 40 meters south of launch spot that may come into play if you sail deep Austin bay and ruin your day.  On today's low tide could easily see it but last time was here was submerged..If you are trying maximum run length from Boomas you may gybe(jibe?) (which is correct?) close to shore about here....I sure have...better turn about 10m out from bank to avoid (5m from bank and death)...Easy to see wreck on sat images but these are all summer

Gybe is British (UK) English, jibe American (US) English. So for you, it's gybe, and for me, jibe Smile

Thanks Peter. I always thought jibe was a spelling mistake!

A jibe is when you are poking fun at someone

Us British were gybing in our sailing vessels 300 years before America was invented/fabricated/dreamt up and "gybe" was already the word for the action of turning through 180 degrees in a downwind direction.
