An OK Sunday afternoon at Port Sorell a bit gusty, but OK, used a 7.5 m2 sail, a good move in the end.
Nice to have sand under your feet after Johno's swamp

Sailed at Dorans Rd. in bump and jump conditions wind was NW. most of the time but swung SW. later on. speeds increased by about 3 knots in the SW. as you could sail up the troughs rather than over the bumps.

Sailed Doran's. Wind was gusting every few minutes (literally) from 12-25 knots. Out on the water by about 11 am. Sailed for about an hour and then came in and was going to pack up, but waited a while and decided to go back out. Wind increased to around 18-25 knots, but was still super gusty and swinging from NNW to W and at one point SW. Killer chop most of the time (good practice), but at times, some nice 'channels' down the chop as the wind would swing. Sailed upwind many times, trying to line my self up for a NM (the bay is only about 0.7 NM, so you need to work up wind and then angle down (crazy). Got one good run for the day and was pretty pleased with it as it was around 22 knots at the start and finish, but was most around 31-32, giving me an 29.9 average. All up, a good day. About 20 people out sailing, which was great.
Sailed iSonic 86 (2009) and Severne SSR 5.6 all day. Combo felt good in the gusts and alway managed stay up-right in the lulls.
