Holloways....few mobsters there including Kel,Billy,Peter and Ben.   Was quite windy and rough out wide .

Billy loan me his tribal 36 fin to try out....very good upwind unsure on the rest as it was chopy and let go a couple of times.

(couldn't be me!!)     Peter needed a medal....he was using an 8.6 sail and I think got a reasonable speed, Billy looked the

goods on his carbonart and did ok again. Ben is certainly getting more confident and was seen a long way out.

Sneeky little Saturday Arvo sail at the local with Benny, Freddo, Pete and Kel. Filled in nicely one the incoming tide started its march. Unfortunatley the tide and the wind turn things into a giant washing machine...again. Very few smooth lanes to drop into and really let loose. Spent most of the arvo blatting around with Freddo, which was awesome. 

Young Ben almost needed a visa today. Found him way out wide...on a mission to get to Numea I think. Lookerd like he was really enjoying himself. Very gutsy heading out wide in the lumpy stuff. Reckons he was hanging on for dear life , heading up wind and over the swell....very scary indeed Benny Boy. Well done, just dont make it a habit!! Just stick em in !!!!

Bloody bugger, still didnt register an alpha...might have my GT-31 set to high...possibly. My GW60 was flat. I believe though, my NM today is a "Spot" PB. Got to be happy with that.

Great arvo with great mates. By the way, if any one has a 42 Sting 11 or similar, available to sell, would love to gaer from you.

After a few weeks freezing in Brisbane it's  nice to be back in the Norths warm breezes. Nice chat with the team afterwards. Ah paradise.Laughing

Fun little sesh in the local slop.  Sailed with Billy, Freddo, Kel & Peter.  Cranked the crapper out of the sail today, but a few strong wind gusts and swell still had the better of me which led to a couple of decent unco stacks...  Kept control of the rig for most of the time completing some long runs.  Perhaps if I shoved the feet in the straps it wouldn't have been so hard!  Billy reckons he is going to throw a rave party when it eventually happens!!!

Billy & Freddo were blasting around keeping close company with each other.  As usual, Captain Kel made things look all too easy "like a sailor's wet dream" further upwind. 

Peter should clock some nice numbers- am interested to see what the GW60 watch reads as mine often seems to dial down a little.

All being said, another great day with the mobbers out on the water!

The word is PD for tomorrow- the "Windsurfing Widow" has approved, sort of... Cool
