I'll coming down from Brissie for my First Merimbula classic so take it easy on me I heard I might need one of those wetsuit things, what the water isn't nice and warm down there?

The water's around 19 degrees here at the moment.
If the north easters don't blow too hard between now and late November it'll be at least that warm for the event.
That'll mean steamers for the Qld'ers and boardies for the Vicco's

Sounds like a good plan, I'll be doing the same again, leaving on Thurs and depending on breaks along the way will get there either Sat or Sun.

It's worth being at the event for Thur and Fri. It never seems the same when you're only there for the weekend. You do miss half the fun. I'd skip the breaks on the way down and be there for the Thur morning briefing.

Absolutely agree, I meant Thurs the week before. 4 days just isn't enough

You better be there. It wouldn't be Merimbula without you at the bar or on the barbie. Unfortunately have to miss this year JS due to racing in WA but will be back next year.

I'll be looking for the dugong..



A rare sighting of a dugong in Merimbula Bay has left locals and tourists amazed. Beth Richards spotted the creature on Wednesday, November 18, when she was with her family trying to catch a glimpse of Merimbula’s resident seal. “At first we thought it was the seal swimming around but then it put it’s head up and it was obvious it was something else,” Ms Richards said. “I had never seen a dugong in the wild before and couldn’t really believe it was right there, so close.”She said the dugong was roughly two and a half metres long and “very fat”. The dugong hung around near the Merimbula Causeway for around 20 minutes before it drifted into Top Lake with the tide. Merimbula Aquarium manager Anthony Daly said it was the first he has heard of a dugong being sighted in Merimbula in around 25 years.

I'm here!!!!
But major embarrassment - I left Melbourne with 3 boards and arrived with two.
The previously unexplained noise happened about 15 minutes the Melbourne side of Cann River, I think.
Could anyone coming down tonight / tomorrow keep an eye out for a possibly damaged 10'6" Fanatic Fly in a Naish bag.
Too far to go back now, will go for a look in the morning.
I think that beats "I left my paddle at Cottesloe" hands down.
