Budgewoi Lake, NSW, AU - mid arvo sail with Milsy, Old Pete and later Jono in a ENE breeze about 15-18 knots. Rigged my 7.3 GPS with the JP 112L and 21cm MUF. Was overpowered most of the time when I first got out but put up with it think it would back off later on when the usual 4pm thunder storm came in. It did and it did!! Came in as the storm approached and Bruce went out at the same time. I call him "Mad". You call him......
Water was not its usual flat self today as the wind angle stirred up a little bit of chop so I was hard to find any big flat areas to sail in which is wierd for Peely I reckon.....water was very frothie looking with lots of white bubbles floating along.

12 - 15 knots again died out quick but still fun ,too rough in the river for the foot so went for the flat water but wind just wouldnt come in

Managed to use and retreive data off the old GPS. Weird day with the wind a bit light,gusty and patchy with storms about. Sailed with Rob, Chris, Martin and Veronica. Good to see Pete C and son Sam out sailing again.
Bit choppy and shallow on the weed bank, but snagged a couple of OK gusts before the storm eased the wind and then re- freshened after passing. Out for another blast in more maxed out conditions in the chop out front. NNE-15-20, then 20 -25+k. 93, 11.5, 6.6.
