Got down there, wind was blowing a very consistant 14-17knots was going to go the big girl, but the forecast was supposed to kick around 5 (can you see my first mistake?).
So I trusted the forecast as it was looking pretty good, Had a bit of a chat with Terry who has now emigrated down to sunny Mandurakastan trying to sort out his GPS units.
Got on the water one underwelming underpowered run, turned around got palning even more underwhelming ended up chugging the last half back.
Attempted another run, chugged for a bit decided it was indeed crap a failed wobble gybe then spent the next 15mins attempting to get my fat arse out of the water with water starts and body dragging, unfortunately my fat arse won the argument with the lack of breeze.
One concelation, definately warm enough to go the boardies now.
Crabs are stil feral little bastards
