Another early morning start at Boggy Lake with Sam. He caught the one and only carp today. On the water mid to late morning. Started out gusty westerly 15 - 23 and increased to 20 - 30 knots. Hard day very choppy and gusty but fun. Have heard Hamma, Ricky and Jimbob have done some nice speeds at Lake George.
Boggy lake - 20 - 30 knot westerly.

Thought i would try the blustery westerly today to crack 30knots.Straight offshore at Stansbury lets you sail across the bay, past the jetty and out past the scallop patch, which is not the norm here. The wind was 10 - 30knots ,nothing at times but then good sheets of wind building to almost uncontrolable. Was quite happy not to stack today unlike last week when i hit the submerged sandbar at nearly full speed and did the old hooked in over the front face plant body slam trick. Had the hole bay to myself today unlike last week when it was like South road. Normaly wouldnt sail the westerly but the GPS was looking at me and so i did and it was well worth it.

hit the water when it was a cushy 15-20 then it went to a mental 20-30. Found the water state confusing and irratic.
Good to sail Boggy . first time back since the infamous Carp incident. Well done on the speeds Carl & Sam.

Quick Wash, Spin, & Rinse in the washing machine at Para with Pete. Had to wait for the tide for some water by then the wind had dropped & was very gusty & shifted to cross - cross off shore 10-13k slug with 25k bullets caught a couple of bullets that were fun between the slug upwind before it all petterered out.

Beachport, Lake George, SA, WNW 20 to 28, on the middle lake.
F2 Missile, 5.8 KA Koncept, 24 choco weedie. gear was sweet as today solid off the wind and blazed upwind to get me heaps of runs.
had the Hamma bros and wazza to sail with, great to have some one push me a bit, thanks for telling me to harden up everytime I was going to change to the 5.0 , ended up on the 5.8 all day which was the right call.
done all my 2secs on port tack but sometimes going back upwind maybe should have done some starboard runs as well.
went for a nm to back up Hamma as he said he had a smoking one ( ? what happened ) done a starboard run but wasn't real happy with it so went straight into a port run which took me down behind the islands near cockys point, lucky I did as that was my best one, was amazed got back with 1 gybe as the choco weedie and missile goes very well upwind.
had 3 hours sleep from night shift and have had the wog foe a few days so was very happy with how i went. done it bloody hard on night shift after though.
HEY MINERAL......... a year already since you sailed with me on your trip.
