ruth said...Where do you sail? There are a few keen women sailors down in Safety Bay if you want company.
Hi ruth, I currently sail, spending time between Hervey Bay, Cairns and Port Phillip, Victoria, I'm away from home on a two year course but back home mid next year, close to Safety Bay so will be great to catch up with some other women sailors. Kale.

...work on smooth drawn out turns in lightish winds around 8 to 14 knots. Step two- Once comfy with step one, repeat step one again but in stronger winds from 12-15 knots and you'll tear the waves to peices...
When Ocean Reef shows 12-15 knts is hardly visible on the surface. What sort of sail would a 100kg guy need to sail a wave board in 12-15 knts?
Thanks mate, still a full L plater but starting to get comfortable in the surf and make some half decent turns. It's funny, I feel better in the waves than on flat water- but I'm sure that steems from a surfing back ground. Hopefully by next December (that will be 12 months sailboarding) I can jump on the near paid off 85 lt Quatro I have sitting in the shed As for sail sizes for a 100 kg sailor , not sure I'm a feather weight, but 12-15 knts has plenty of push to get on waves, so surely something around 6 meters should do it?? Maybe some of the bigger wave guys will have a better idea... Cam11, don't forget to tell us about ya first outing in the surf Keen to here your take on it. Cheers
