Squeezed in a really quick session at 45 before heading up to Melbourne for a family B'day & Engagement dinner (since it was for my engagement i thought i better turn up, that would've been a good start to the rest of my life wouldnt it)
Sailed at 45, Drift & Naz sailed down from the Angling club on a Wally and SUP to join me for a few runs before heading back. Gee the water at 45 gets gnarly on an incoming tide... was hairy heading off the wind even though the wind was light.
Gear - 7.4 Koyote & 136 Supersport (Could've done with my iSonic 101 in hindsight)
Wind - 12kts ish from SSE
Wish i had've sailed up at the angling club with Kato et al. Water looked a look nicer when i stopped in there for a quick chat on the way home.

LOCATION: ANGLING CLUB TO @45 TO INLET MOUTH
WIND: ESE- 12-15 KTS
TIDE: OUTGOING TO SLACK
GEAR: Starboard 12'6 SUP, KA KOYOTE 8.2
DETAILS: Whoa! Most fun Ive had in ages. Arrived at the Inlet with about 3 knots of breeze. It picked up to about 10 so rigged the big gear. Took the JP out but it was marginal so I switched to the SUP. The wind filled in a bit so Naz and I decided to sail down to Dan @ 45. Great sail as the wind picked up and I got the SUP planing!. Its a bugger to get the nose down and not having footstraps makes it an interesting proposition off the wind but, it was a totally different feel!
Did a flying run past a fishing boat near the boat ramp at 45 and all I heard was a fisherman go "What the f%ck???"...
Anyway Naz and I made it to 45, then turned around for a single run back to the Angling Club. Got back there in about 15 minutes and then noticed Kato was sailing the Inlet mouth (gidgets) so I did a few runs up to the entrance.
Great day on the water

Great fun travelling down to meet up with Dan, but struggled as the wind picked up; walked on bits of the Inlet I had not seen before.
